OUR FIRM MISSION
As a boutique CPA firm, we provide businesses and individuals alike a blend of personal service and specialized expertise to build your business legacy. Instead of working for you, our team of professionals collaborate with you to fully understand your financial environment and establish a plan to achieve your definition of success. We are committed to ongoing personal and professional development to continuously seek knowledge that improves outcomes for our team and clients.
OUR FIRM VALUES
Always Act with Integrity
We believe in always doing the right thing by our clients and our team members. We expect honesty, ethical behavior and mutual respect in all interactions.
We are Better Together
We work collaboratively for the good of the company, our clients, and each other. We will have the hard conversations so that we can ensure the greatest outcome. Communication is key in any organization, and we will strive to be effective communicators so that we can be the best we can be for our clients and team.
We Will Be Accountable
Client satisfaction is of the utmost importance. We are accountable to the work we commit to complete for our clients. We deliver quality work in a timely manner. By working as a team, we are accountable to each other to produce results for our clients. Be the team member you want your colleagues to be to you.
Embrace a Growth Mindset
We believe that there is always room for growth and learning. We will provide a culture that allows for personal and professional development so that it brings value to our team members, who in turn are equipped to serve our clients at the highest level.
Provide Value in Every Interaction
We will provide value to our clients by listening to understand their underlying needs. Often, the perceived concern is not the issue needing to be solved. We will provide reasoned advice based on looking out for the whole well-being of our clients and supporting our clients with their specific needs.
We believe in having fun while doing serious and important work for our clients.
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.
Experience Counts. Results Matter.
Our firm has recognized experience working with small to mid-sized clients. When evaluating your business, we will consider every facet of your financial, professional, and personal goals.
Your business is one of your most important financial assets.
We are honored to be named "Best Accounting Firm" by The Business Journal's annual Best of Central Valley Business award ceremony two years in a row. Thank you to our team, clients, and everyone in the community for supporting us!
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
