In addition to in-office perks, we’ve recently implemented a number of initiatives within the firm to invest in our employees’ work experience.

Volunteering

“Abdo provides employees time off to volunteer, which is one of my favorite benefits offered by the firm. Unlike other companies that offer Volunteer Time Off, Abdo encourages employees to use this time to volunteer for organizations that are important to us as individuals. This allows me time to be part of my community and give back in a way that feels meaningful and makes my life more fulfilling. In addition, Abdo provides opportunities throughout the year for employees to connect with different organizations to use their VTO time for various projects. What makes Abdo different for me is not only that they offer VTO, but that they encourage and support us to use that time.”

Family

“My daughter recently had a baby and with the benefit of grandparent leave, I was able to help support her during the week while her husband was at work. Being a new mom comes with many emotions, a lot of unknowns, and can be exhausting and overwhelming to handle on your own. My daughter appreciated having me there to talk and answer questions. I was there to help with the household duties, to make meals and to allow my daughter time to rest when she needed it most. The best part of grandparent leave is having time to snuggle and connect with the newest member of my family!”

—Jolene Marsh

Teamwork

“Time and time again, team members at our firm come together to serve clients and get things done! Last year, the entire Audit & Attest team rallied together to finish a retirement plan audit just in time for the filing due date! The whole team came together to get it done and it would not have been possible were it not for the hard work of the entire group. And this teamwork approach is not a one-time phenomenon - it’s a natural part of life at Abdo and a core value that we practice every day. Collaboration on both client work and internal projects makes the work a lot more manageable and fun. Plus, by being part of a team at Abdo, you don’t need to know everything. You can rely on the others within the team to do their part to make a project successful. I absolutely love that we all have different strengths and talents and by bringing them all together we can provide fantastic service to our clients - while enjoying our work-life!”

—Wendy Keenan

Relationships

“Throughout my professional career, it is the relationships I have developed along the way that I value most. When relationships are a continued focus and one of an organization’s core values, you know you have found the right place. For Abdo, relationships aren’t just an idea written down once and never referred to again, they are encouraged every day. The company has ongoing commitment to building relationships and connections - from mentors and buddies, to team meetings, celebration of special events together and planned outings, in teams, as an entire firm. Relationships aren’t just within the firm, though, some of the most important relationships we develop and treasure are with our valued clients with whom we are proud to know and serve.”
