Getting Acquainted

Getting Started

Each person that starts with BS&P participates in a comprehensive new employee orientation program. This one-on-one training with an experienced accountant allows them to experience performing taxation and accounting engagements while becoming familiar with software and procedures.

Buddy-Up

When you first start at BS&P, you’ll have a Big Brother/Big Sister to help you get situated while you settle in and help guide you in your work.  They know what it is like when first starting at BS&P so if you have questions, feel free to ask away!

Keep it (Business) Casual

BS&P has a year round business casual dress code to help create a comfortable environment conducive to productivity.

Continuing Education – BS&P hosts Continuing Professional Education (CPE).  CPE is required for CPA’s to maintain their professional competence and provide quality professional services. Although all of our CPA certified staff attend CPE to fulfill their requirement we encourage everyone to complete their requirement so they continually work toward their own career goals.

Each year our firm dedicates time to hold fundraisers in honor of a local charity. Everyone takes part in supporting basket auctions, happy hours and by donating items and volunteering their time to help make events successful.
