The Garabedian Group’s history has been shaped by Dale Garabedian’s philosophy about how a CPA firm should function. Gone are the outrageous hours employees worked in CPA firms of the past. Unproductive employee presenteeism, and once a year, client visits to discuss taxes would no longer be the norm. Another reform came in the form of upfront pricing for clients to feel free to proactively seek advice and discuss any business issue without the fear of unknown hourly billing or a ticking time clock.
“We wanted a balanced work-life and to create long-term relationships with our clientele. Step by step, we made changes, and over time, our vision became a reality.” Dale Garabedian
On June 1, 2009, The Garabedian Group, Inc. was founded by Dale J. Garabedian.

In late 2012 The Garabedian Group, Inc. was the first accounting firm to go ROWE™ (Results Only Work Environment™). Results Only Work Environment™ (ROWE™) is a management strategy where employees are evaluated on performance, not presence. ROWE™ has changed the entire dynamic of our office. Everyone is enjoying the freedom of autonomy and accountability while continuing to produce stellar results. It works, it is fun, and we are much more balanced in our work and personal lives.
Teamwork, morale and engagement soar, which leads to fewer workers feeling overworked, stressed out or guilty. Employees have equal parts autonomy and accountability. There is no judgment on how people spend their time, so people at all levels stop wasting the company's time and money.
Bottom Line for our Company:
Increase productivity, innovation, and efficiency
Improved talent attraction and retention
Optimization of space
Elimination of wasteful processes
