Sherman, Barber & Mullikin offers a challenging and rewarding career for talented and motivated individuals at various professional levels. We recognize that our employees are our biggest asset and that happy team members translates into a successful team. We are not the typical local accounting firm for a variety of reasons. Unlike most local firms, we offer the full range of professional services including audits and financial statements, tax preparation and planning, specialized consulting services and more. Another area that distinguishes us from other firms is our approach to client service. Our team oriented approach gives employees the opportunity to communicate and develop relationships with client personnel at all levels. Our clients benefit from ongoing interaction and relationships, not just once a year when tax time rolls around.
We are proud of our enthusiastic and knowledgeable people and recognize that we have an obligation to equip them with the tools they need to excel. We look for employees who want to reach their full potential, who are passionate about helping others and who want to enjoy their job. We provide our professionals with laptop computers which allows them to access our systems from anywhere they can access the Internet. We maintain state of the art IT systems and sophisticated software which enables us to complete paperless engagements and much more.
Our team members are afforded tremendous opportunities for professional personal development through ongoing training, education and experience. Each person can select and request specific courses that will develop the knowledge and skills that best suit their specific interests. Our management team also works with employees to maximize the educational elements of the formal training they undertake, as well as during the completion of individual engagements by providing encouragement and informal feedback. We also value and encourage community involvement as a means to personal growth and development. We assist our employees in identifying and getting involved in community and local nonprofit activities including service on committees and boards. We have a long history of community and philanthropic achievement that has been very rewarding to our team members as well as to our community. Three members of the firm have served as president of the local Chamber of Commerce and the firm was awarded the initial Business Citizenship Award for community service.
We are also very committed to our profession and encourage involvement in state society leadership and participation. One of our principals has served as Chair of the Peer Review Committee, on the Board of Directors, and the Leadership Cabinet of the Indiana CPA Society.
We recognize that while it is important to have a challenging and rewarding career, people do, and should, have other priorities. Family and other personal priorities are important to us and we offer members of our team flexible work options whenever possible to accommodate those priorities. Nearly all of our clients are within an hour or so of Madison. Therefore, we are at home more often in the afternoon and rarely have overnight travel.
Recognizing that we devote much of our time and efforts to our careers, the work environment and culture are important factors. We don't have cubicles at Sherman, Barber & Mullikin; you get a real office. We offer business casual attire options along with flexible work schedules. We provide firm outings, paid time off, retirement and cafeteria plans, health, life and disability insurance, continuing professional education and memberships in state and national associations. We also assist with the cost of the CPA exam. We are committed to our clients, to our professionals, to our community and to each other.
