Purpose & Values

Our purpose is to ignite possibilities that help our clients and employees thrive.

Whether it’s the journey of a client’s business or the path of an employee’s career, we are committed to helping people get there. By living our core values and thinking beyond the services we provide, we will uncover and activate opportunities that matter.

 

It’s easy to talk the talk; at Perkins we’re committed to doing more than just saying the right thing, which is why we created values that reflect where we’ve come from, where we are, and where we want to be. Our purpose is more than just words, it’s a call to action and our reason for being.

DEFY STEREOTYPES

Be a less boring accounting firm

Tradition is confining; sameness is stifling. With a fresh brand of business savvy, we embrace adaptability, ingenuity, and innovation. This is possible when we encourage and harness the differences and individuality of our people.

SHOW UP

Uphold commitments with integrity

It takes unwavering dedication to say the hard thing, do the right thing, be a leader, and take responsibility for our actions. We get involved, get to it, and do it well.

WORK TOGETHER

Achieve as one firm

We’re committed to thinking about “us” rather than “me.” We play well together, challenge one another, and celebrate each other’s unique paths. We collaborate, communicate, and coordinate, bringing together our talents as a singular voice.

CARE DEEPLY

Connect with and consider people in all matters

To do what we do well, we must care to our core. Care about our work, clients, community, the firm, and each other. We must connect authentically, listen well, and be thoughtful with our actions.

CREATE SIMPLICITY

Make it easy to focus on what matters 

Work, life, and the world around us are complex. Knowing our clients’ goals and endgame, we simplify complicated aspects of their lives so they can focus on what’s most important to them. As an organization, we create clarity, communicate straightforwardly, and enable easy.

EVOLVE DAILY

Seek better at every turn

Progress and learning keep us at the top of our game. Whether it’s finding a more efficient way to do something, adopting a fresh solution to a problem, or embracing a more empathetic worldview, continuous development is foundational to who we are.
