Make a Measurable Difference 

Companies come to us because they are seeking growth, direction, better cash flow, more profit, accurate financial information, and at time their very survival. The work that we do results in less debt, more informed purchases and investments, properly trained employees, and an improved quality of life for all owners and employees of the company. Everything we do and all of the advice we give is in the best interest of the companies we serve, even if it is unpopular with the business owner, manager, or the employees. 

Be Yourself and Have FUN

We strive for work-life integration, not separation. Being a different person at work and home can get exhausting. We encourage our employees to be themselves and to bring their personalities and full range of talents to work; both among colleagues and with our clients.

Respect Everyone

We are open to ideas from all team members, so we insist on a culture of respect where everyone feels that their contributions matter. Gossip and complaining are not tolerated. Disagreements are encouraged as they show passion and engagement, but they need to be handled in a respectful and productive manner.

Accept Feedback

If a client or coworker approaches you about a problem or issue, do not get defensive and assume that the other party is unreasonable. In the spirit of open communication, listen to what they have to say and accept it. Then discuss how you can mutually resolve the issue. 

Commit to Growth 

We all commit to growth, both personally and professionally and we see change as a positive and inevitable part of that growth. All employees are given the training and leadership they need to become successful based on their definition and desired level of respect.

We Love Our Clients and They Love Us

We give our clients our all so we require our clients to meet us halfway. We expect positive interaction even in negative situations. Our clients must commit to treat our staff with respect, embrace the positive and forward thinking changes we will drive in their organization, and follow procedures put in place to help them once mutually agreed on. 

Learn to Love Change 

As our firm evolves, change is necessary. We may push employees and clients harder than they are comfortable being pushed all in an effort to grow. Our employees must embrace change and constantly look for ways to improve processes, both internally and externally. Our greatest challenges are our greatest opportunities for growth.
