Culture, Diversity & Inclusion


Respect for you, your time, your life.

As a growing professional, there are different things that are important at different stages of your life.  At RSM Canada we value that your personal time is as important as your work time by offering flexible work options and resources that address these needs.  Our goal is to have motivated, engaged team members who can balance their careers with the various demands of life.

Culture, diversity and inclusion

Thousands of personalities make up RSM. Every member of our team brings unique insights and a passion for the middle market companies we serve. Our inclusive workplace celebrates the differences among our talented employees, while enabling them to embrace full ownership of their work and personal lives.

We approach our commitment to a diverse workplace, enabling RSM to develop global leadership, integrate cultural differences, improve workforce productivity and exceed the expectations of our clients. Our differences fuel our insights.  

Our team members discuss the impact of our focus on culture, diversity and inclusion:

Our employee network groups

RSM devotes a full-time team exclusively to our culture, diversity and inclusion (CDI) efforts. In addition, thousands of RSM professionals devote time to internal workforce and workplace initiatives, as well as marketplace and community programs.

Among our workplace initiatives, RSM supports employee network groups (ENGs) that provide opportunities for volunteerism, professional development, mentorship and networking for everyone at our firm. Our 11 national ENGs bring together people with diverse experiences and similar interests. Each offers unique ways for all employees to grow and learn, while they celebrate all walks of life, genders, interests and backgrounds.

For its members, each ENG serves as a sounding board and a resource for communication and advocacy. RSM leaders look to our ENGs for innovative insights to help enrich experiences for our clients and our people. The groups are open to all employees, with 40 percent, or over 3,775 individuals, now belonging to ENGs. The groups are open to all employees, and more than half of our workforce belongs to at least one ENG, all of which are highlighted below.
