Discover Our Core Values
and the Impact Each One Makes
As a professional services firm, our business boils down to having the right people that provide exceptional advice to our clients. We recognize the numbers on financial statements tell a story. We embrace our team’s ability to shape that story to impact our client’s success. We empower our people with the right mindsets and skills to navigate what is next, become transformative leaders, pursue careers as unique as they are, and build their own exceptional Berman Hopkins experiences.
These five simple but powerful core values describe our distinctive culture.
It Takes a Team
At Berman Hopkins, we enthusiastically support each other professionally and personally. We recognize this attracts superior talent, enables innovation, and helps deliver well-rounded client solutions. We not only work together but genuinely enjoy each other too! We have an "all in this together" mentality and acknowledge our decisions have an impact. We understand it takes every person working together as a team to service our clients successfully.
Know Your Client
At Berman Hopkins, our clients are at the epicenter of everything! Therefore, we strive to be trusted business advisers and earn that trust by utilizing a multi-faceted approach that allows us to anticipate potential problems and promptly initiate complicated conversations. We provide business advice that integrates corporate accounting, auditing, and tax management to develop a value-added strategic plan. By building long-lasting relationships at a personal and professional level, we undoubtedly know each client's expectations and exceed those commitments.
Put the Firm First
Every day we challenge ourselves to do what matters most for our team, clients, and community. Our people dare to lead with eagerness, energy, and enthusiasm. We approach our work with a collaborative mindset to deliver tangible, measurable, and impactful results for our clients. We are willing to confront challenging situations, consider long-term implications, and make tough decisions for the greater good of the firm. Our diverse perspectives, combined with an inclusive culture, drive better decision-making and stimulate innovation.
Journey to Excellence
At Berman Hopkins, we strive to understand what affects, impacts, and influences the economic marketplace. Therefore, we are not afraid to identify complex problems, manage potential risks, take appropriate steps to overcome possible obstacles, and develop lasting solutions.
We recognize what our talented team, loyal clients, and community need to be excellent! Therefore, our company accepts clients only in our areas of expertise and is not "everyone’s" CPA firm. This mentality has been a critical change in our business model and has enabled our team to focus on being more than just a compliance-oriented firm. We develop our niches, evolve the practice, and become specialists. This gives us the flexibility, versatility, and adaptability needed to deliver tailored accounting solutions.
