Beyond the Numbers: Mentoring During Tax Season
As accountants, tax season is the busiest time of year for us. Everyone is working hard to provide a smooth tax filing process for each and every client. As important as this work is, we also believe that happy office culture and positive interoffice relationships are crucial pillars of our firm, and a large part of what separates Dermody, Burke & Brown apart from other accounting firms.
We recently implemented a mentoring initiative in the firm, designed to give all our accountants the support needed to grow in their careers and in the firm. We worked with a local coffee shop, Freedom of Espresso, to set up a short-term tab for all employees participating in this mentoring program. This was a chance for mentees to have some one-on-one time with their mentors to discuss goals and obstacles, as well as to find common interests outside of work. It's amazing what you can accomplish over a cup of coffee!
