It's no accident that BPM's motto is Because People Matter. We understand that motivated and talented employees are a successful company's greatest asset. We are driven by a practical, can-do, entrepreneurial spirit, and we value our staff as individuals, including the parts of them that go beyond balance sheets and tax filings. We are committed to:
Work-life balance: BPM believes in a workplace that allows for a balanced life, with time for family, creative pursuits and community involvement.
Valuing diversity Attracting and retaining a diverse, inclusive workforce is vital to BPM's ongoing success. Our multicultural employees represent more than 30 different countries and speak 21 different languages.
Opportunities for growth: Today’s young accountants will be tomorrow’s senior partners. We recruit the best accounting and finance professionals, then provide them with the training and advancement opportunities to keep them continually growing.
Fostering women’s leadership: BPM is dedicated to ensuring that all employees have the same opportunities for professional development and achieving success regardless of gender. Three of our talented women partners have been named among “The Most Influential Women in Bay Area Business” by the San Francisco Business Times and North Bay Business Times.
A values-driven culture: Our values include transparency, integrity and honesty. At “town hall” meetings, BPM management opens the agenda to all employees and readily fields questions – even the tough ones.
Social responsibility: BPM contributes to humanitarian causes and in 2011 raised more than $55,000 in response to the devastating tsunami in Japan. We are committed to emphasizing firm-wide environmental stewardship, and the majority of our Bay Area offices have Green Business certification either completed or underway.
For these reasons and more, BPM has been named among the “Best Places to Work” by the San Francisco Business Times for eight years in a row. In 2010, Accounting Today named BPM the 9th best accounting firm in the U.S. to work for in the large firm category (250 or more employees).
