The internal culture at the American Institute of CPAs is welcoming, professional, fun and hard-working. The communications and media channels team is a group of creative individuals who thrive on the ideas and attitudes of its team members. The core belief is that the personal connection and understanding between co-workers is vital to the success of AICPA’s projects and the team as a whole.
AICPA maintains a unique personal/professional balance that fosters growth and success. The communications and media channels team also has regular strategic meetings and outings. These events encourage team members to get to know each other and develop better working relationships.
AICPA offers tuition reimbursement and various internal training opportunities including Toastmasters International, Grow the Ranks, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and Continuing Professional Education to CPAs on staff. Employees are also offered the opportunity to attend seminars and conferences that will foster their growth in their position and on the team.
AICPA not only offers all full-time employees eight hours annually to volunteer, but also offers part-time employees seven hours annually to volunteer their time during working hours. In addition to that, AICPA offers four weeks annually, branded “Participate.” This program covers four different themes (in 2011 they were Health & Wellness, Hunger Relief, Animal Rescue and Education & Literacy) and it organizes volunteer activities for staff across each of AICPA’s four locations. If employees are engaged in this time, they do not need to use their given volunteer hours, but may save those for another time.
