It allows Crowe personnel to work where they're most productive - whether that be the office, their home or elsewhere - and wear jeans while they're in the office. This policy continues to receive great reviews on annual internal employee engagement surveys.

Benefits: The firm promotes healthy living through its internal well-being portal, which allows Crowe individuals to complete wellness activities - such as exercise challenges, healthy eating, doctor visits and mindful lifestyle changes - for gift cards and health insurance premium reductions.
