We'll Treat You Like Family
Whether employees or clients, our relationships are personal and we treat you like family. Even as we grow, we remain committed to a culture that puts family first.
Our growth comes organically–through word of mouth and client endorsement; a testament to the culture we have created. Simply put, The Nisivoccia Way permeates throughout everything we do. We have a casual, family-like atmosphere that treats our staff and our clients with the level of respect that they deserve and expect. Respect goes beyond the walls of the company and simply doing good business; we continually invest in the community that has put their faith in us for half a century.
Our culture isn’t contrived, and we haven’t brought in a bunch of consultants to paint us as something we can’t live up to. We were lucky enough to have been born with a strong work ethic and an ability to understand how important it is to treat people right.
These are the traits that we pass down to everyone on our team and are evident in everything we do. For 50 years, The Nisivoccia Way has made us great partners with our clients and why we are a Best Place to Work. As we look to the next 50 years, business and technology will change, but The Nisivoccia Way is here to stay.
What The Nisivoccia Way Really Means
When you walk down the halls of Nisivoccia you’ll find partners asking who won the Little League game or how someone’s dog is feeling after eating their kids’ homework. It means we know our clients and kids and their kid’s kids. We know when they are feeling pressured by budget restrictions and when they are celebrating success. It means we are there during the good times and bad. Having a family-focused culture means employees stay with us longer and provides continuity on client engagements.
This means we won’t send you a bill if you call and ask a question. In fact, we encourage you to call. And if you call and the person you need is not available, another team member will help you. This means when we perform an audit, we don’t treat you like you did something wrong. Instead, we collaborate with you to identify ways to improve your overall system and help you fix any errors we may encounter. This means we’ll go through your budget line by line to find a discrepancy. On a Saturday, if that’s what’s required.
Personable & Professional People
Let’s face it, accountants have a reputation for being shy. However, our people have personality. We are pleasant to be around, know how to have a conversation and might even be called fun. But don’t get us wrong, getting the job done right is a priority. Over 50% of our staff are licensed CPAs who are invested in their profession and the success of the Firm and our clients.
We anticipate changes, challenges and opportunities. And take action. Today. Whether it’s upcoming tax regulations or advances in technology, we stay ahead of the curve and provide our staff and clients with the training and information they need to adapt. When changes are coming, we provide clients templates and checklists to easily implement the change.
We work with over 200 not-for-profits and understand the value that these organizations bring to people and missions they advocate for and we support these missions.
- We donate billable time to them.
- We volunteer for their projects.
- We serve on their boards.
- We fundraise for them with our monthly Jeans days.
- We run in their 5Ks, attend their galas, and play in their golf outings.
- We promote their messages.
Our Engagement Philosophy
Client service starts with having the right people on the team who embody our culture. Every encounter you have with Nisivoccia will feel like you’re dealing with someone who genuinely cares about you and the work that is being done. The size of the Firm means we have expertise in a wide range of areas and can tap into the knowledge of our colleagues when we don’t know the answer. And we aren’t afraid to say we don’t know because we are confident that someone in the Firm can help. When we don’t have the resources in-house, we reach out to members of BKR, our international affiliate network.
The overall engagement philosophy of Nisivoccia is to provide our clients with distinctive and superior, value-added service. This philosophy places great emphasis on looking beyond the accounting entries to the underlying operations and business situations which give rise to the entries. We believe it is important as business advisors for us to gain insight into various conditions which affect our client’s financial position and operations. In accomplishing this, we obtain an understanding of the organization and its people, the system and procedures which provide internal accounting controls and the interaction between them. We take pride in conducting our work with a business consciousness and awareness that will enable us to make suggestions and recommendations that are constructive and helpful.
