Good training is key to your success!
We have a sincere commitment to staff development, focusing our efforts on both the professional and personal growth of our team. We have implemented two unique programs that have enabled us to build a strong culture that both nurtures and rewards our employees.
The first is Performance and Career Excellence (PACE), a comprehensive and cohesive development process that incorporates two key building blocks of professional success – competencies and contributions - with a natural annual performance cycle. Competencies and contributions work together to build an individual’s performance. Competencies are the enduring traits or characteristics of an individual that help determine job performance while contributions are performance results achieved when one applies his/her competencies. During the performance cycle, our staff sets annual goals with their Development Advisors, receives timely informal feedback, receives formal feedback on every job over 40 hours, checks in with the Development Advisors during mid-year, and receives a formal year-end evaluation.

The second initiative is Retaining Employees through Active Involvement Now (RETAIN), a continuous improvement process focused on staff retention. It is a process that helps us better understand the motivations and needs of employees and develop an action plan for addressing any retention issues that are identified. The goal of RETAIN is to help us proactively diagnose and address issues that impact staff satisfaction and morale.
Our staff benefits from excellent training opportunities – internal and external as well as local and national - in scope. To accomplish this staff participates in professional development programs offered by the New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants, the American Institution for Certified Public Accountants, and other related sources. We also take advantage of the training programs that are available through our membership with PKF International.
