At AFS, we believe it is important to help make the world a better place. With a history of exemplary service to clients, we strive to bring that same dedication to the communities in which we live and work.
By volunteering our time, talent, and resources, we are able to positively impact our communities and the people who live within them, while building a firm-wide culture of giving back that strengthens our business and inspires our people.
In cultivating an environment that emphasizes a collaborative style of management and service delivery, there are many ways that AFS encourages employees to develop their full potential and to apply their knowledge and skills for the benefit of our clients. A key component of the employee development process stems from our strong client service approach that is characterized by senior level partner involvement in client relationships. This exposes other team members to a flexible, involved, participatory engagement style that distinguishes AFS from other accounting and consulting firms that may rely on more of an assembly line approach to client service. The importance of this “on-the-job” aspect of professional development cannot be overstated.
Coupled with this unique engagement style is a more formal program of professional development that:
(b) Links to the creation of learning plans, supported by a rich curriculum of technical,management development & client relationship training courses.
(a) Begins with a rigorous performance evaluation process.
As far as training is concerned, AFS is committed to the mandate within the accounting profession to build and maintain the highest possible level of professional competence. As suggested, it serves that objective with defined technical and professional curricula, the development of annual learning plans, the sponsoring of a large number of training offerings at the local, regional, and national levels, and continuous evaluation and improvement efforts.
