Our Winning Culture Formula for Engaging Employees
Since our formation in 1997, we have quickly grown into one of the nation’s top 25 firms, which would not have been possible without our talented team of professionals and a shared vision across the firm. While public accounting can be a demanding profession, it can also afford significant opportunities for personal and professional growth. In order to maintain a symmetrical environment that is rewarding from many angles, CRI focuses on six key features of firm culture that comprise our winning formula for employee engagement.
Lionel Powell, Chief Financial Officer, Peoples Bank of Alabama
“...I had the opportunity to see these skills firsthand when I attended the firm's continuing education week. I was impressed with the relevant information and practical solutions shared throughout the firm by CRI partners and staff who led the accounting and financial institution training sessions. CRI has positioned the firm to effectively advise their community bank clients for the opportunities ahead.”
CRI believes in providing employees with the flexibility to keep their personal and professional goals aligned while also meeting—and often exceeding—the needs of colleagues and clients. We accomplish this balance through open communication, proper planning, and personal accountability.
CRI provides all employees with a competitive benefits package and focuses on total rewards — rewards that positively impact our employees’ personal and professional lives. We also monitor current market and industry trends and adjust our rewards package accordingly to ensure that our team’s overall compensation is consistently competitive.
Our custom program embraces agility and invention. The CRI vSTAR™ process, our inaugural initiative delivering a virtual audit, reduces our team’s travel and therefore promotes work/life balance.
The firm makes consistent and significant investments in innovative technology, systems, and tools to allow our team members to have access to all available resources 24/7 and to work efficiently from remote locations — including home and the client’s site.
We shape our employees by delivering comprehensive, formalized training programs focused on key development areas. We facilitate these programs through live sessions, web-based/recorded modules, and on-the-job learning.
We provide all employees with coaching, mentoring, and access to leadership. Our culture embraces an authentic open door practice in which partners are accessible, as evidenced by our professionals’ consistent, positive feedback regarding the approachability of our partners.
