Life @ BDO
At BDO, we champion a culture of courageous leadership, where everyone contributes to our collective success. We are committed to helping our employees achieve on both personal and professional levels. We want you to make enduring connections, to explore opportunities and to be authentically you: making a difference in ways that are important to you.
BDO’s Core Purpose and Values
Our core purpose is helping people thrive, every day. Everything we do is rooted in this purpose and supported by five core values that guide how we work with one another and how we serve our clients. Together, our core purpose and our core values form the foundation of our business and have informed our firm’s thinking for over a decade.
Core Values: People First. Embrace Change. Choose Accountability. Exceptional Every Day, Every Way. Empowerment Through Knowledge.
As the needs of our people and clients have evolved, so has our flexible workplace strategy. Our approach to flexibility supports the question, “What do we need to do, and how, when and where do we do it best?” The goal of flex is universal: To intentionally and collaboratively achieve high levels of performance by working across the spectrum of flexibility, from in-person interactions to virtual collaboration. This approach gives our people the power to collaborate with their teams to decide where and how they work based on their firm and client responsibilities. Flexibility at BDO is not a one-size-fits-all approach. We encourage our people to collaborate with their teams and find the arrangements that benefit them, our clients and their peers.

There is a direct connection between our firm’s culture and our ability to innovate. It works best when individuals and teams feel confident in being open and sharing their ideas ― no matter if they succeed or fail. In creating a people-first culture, every individual can bring the best of themselves and their ideas to work every day and help both our people and our clients harness the transformative power of innovation to deliver exceptional results.
