Florida-Based Firm, Schellman, Recognized as Fortune Magazine’s Best Workplaces for Millennials™ in 2021 Tampa, FL, July 16, 2021 – Tampa-based CPA firm, Schellman & Company, LLC (Schellman), a leading provider of attestation and compliance services, announced today that the firm has placed #75 among Great Place to Work’s (GPTW) Fortune Best Workplaces for Millennials™ in 2021. To even be considered for a ranking, firms were required to employ at least 50 millennials. Over 70% of Schellman 318 team members are considered Millennials, and though this is their first recognition that is generationally specific, it speaks to the large internal strides the firm has made to continuously improve their overall workplace culture. In compiling their rankings, Great Place to Work surveyed millennial employees across the country with questions regarding their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organization, “no matter who they are or what they do.” Employees were also asked to feedback on their daily experiences with their company’s innovation, values, and the effectiveness of leadership. The collective response from the millennial team members at Schellman published by GPTW praised the transparency and proactivity of upper management with regular, personal communication, and specifically recognized the firm’s efforts to reward performance with quarterly bonuses and “surprise gifts.” Such a response is a testament to the work culture Schellman has always sought to establish and maintain—one that prioritizes its people. “The designation from Great Place to Work helps validate that at Schellman we invest in our people who help build our company” says Avani Desai, President, Schellman & Company. "Regardless of age or generation, we have the best and brightest delivering our services, and to appropriately appreciate their hard work, we need to provide them with not only the compensation and benefits that match their high caliber, but also a positive environment where they feel comfortable and where they can grow professionally.” Honored by the initial #75 ranking among millennials, Schellman will strive to improve that position for next year. “As we tailor our programs and push the firm to new industry heights, we will continue to lead with culture, performance and a people-first philosophy. Providing a platform for talented people to perform at the very top of their profession is fundamental to our success.” says Chief People Officer, Karen Greene. Great Place to Work is the global authority on workplace culture. Their full rankings for the “Best Workplaces for Millennials in 2021” can be found on their website at greatplacetowork.com.

Earlier this month, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) published a Reference Architecture allowing merchants to use OCI resources to quickly build an environment that can help meet the intent and rigor of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). As merchants looking to get into the business of taking credit card transactions online often encounter additional challenges in architecting a secure and available framework that meets industry standards—such as PCI DSS—this Reference Architecture should now help alleviate some of that confusion surrounding initial compliance while also demystifying some of the other, more confusing aspects of the standard.  Having had the privilege of working with the team at OCI, Schellman reviewed the OCI Reference Architecture as an independent assessor—during that process, we found some key advantages that are outlined below:
