Founder's CPA Careers Mission Statement
Building the future proof accounting firm of tomorrow.
- The firm of tomorrow does not try to force change overnight. It does so organically at the most reasonable pace allowable within its resource constraints. Sacrificing quality, sanity, and reputation does not justify attaining growth targets for the sake of accomplishment.
- The future is unpredictable, so we must be willing to pivot. What we think we know today very well could be wrong. We won't be stubborn and refuse to readjust when necessary even if it means acknowledging failure and rerouting our path.
- We focus on being forward looking but practical. This means that we anticipate change before the market does but are honest about the feedback the market is providing. There's no shame in trying something innovative and failing as long as lessons are learned from those attempts.
- We focus on creating a different kind of work environment within the accounting industry. We’re not concerned with tracking traditional KPIs that are outdated and inaccurate measures of performance.
