Every organization has values, whether stated explicitly or not. But after working for or with an organization or person for a short period of time, you start to understand what their values are. After using a loose set of terms to describe our values at mACCOUNTING since our inception in 2003, we felt it was time to get them down on paper. In fact, overdue.
We first started with our employees by asking them what values they felt mACCOUNTING stood for and exhibited daily. We also asked them what they would like for us to demonstrate in the future. We also gathered some input from our clients and referral sources to make sure that perception and reality were on the same page.
Here's how we would sum up the Values for our firm:
Entrepreneurial spirit: We have a deep respect and admiration for entrepreneurs. After all, we’re entrepreneurs ourselves. So, like the business leaders we work with, we are innovative, forward- thinking, and dedicated to creative problem-solving. We don’t accept limits.
Customer focused: We are committed to do our best - for our clients, for each other, and for our business. With each client and project, we demonstrate this commitment by going the extra mile in everything we do, providing value that exceeds expectations, and helping one another realize our goals and potential.
Results oriented: We strive to be effective, to make a difference. It’s why we’re here. At the end of the day, we take pride in knowing that our insights and hard work have helped advance our customers’ success.
Character matters: Who we are is just as important as what we achieve. We approach every client and every situation with honesty, integrity and a firm code of ethics.
Balanced lifestyles: We are passionate about our clients and the value we create for them, but that’s not the whole story. We also value and respect our own personal goals for growth and development. We believe the more well-rounded, engaged and, well, “balanced” we are, the better we’re able to help our clients and each other.
We have a commitment to live these values out daily. We hope that by doing so, we'll create an environment that is healthy and growing for our clients, employees and shareholders.
