Accounting Today Features The Siegfried Group as Example of Firm Operating in the World of "Pull"
WILMINGTON, Del., June 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Siegfried Group, LLP was recently featured in the industry-leading accounting and tax trade publication Accounting Today as an organization on the leading-edge of attracting and retaining excellent and outstanding talent. The article highlighted Siegfried as one of the few companies excelling in today's world of "pull," with the double-threat of pulling in talented professionals by providing a constant source of professional development, and offering its clients the ability to pull in this outstanding talent on an as-needed basis.
In today's world of pull, companies can no longer survive by simply pushing out products and services, explained author of the article Gary Boomer, CPA.CITP, CGMA, president of Boomer Consulting. Instead, companies like The Siegfried Group use the power of pull.
"Companies can no longer rest on their laurels, because just around the corner is something new or better," Mr. Boomer wrote in the article. "That means that your company or firm must offer something that keeps talent flocking to be a part of your business, and you must offer an environment where they can develop as rapidly as possible."
The Siegfried Group has used the idea of "pull" for years by doing what it does best: attracting top-notch talent with the right combination of tangible and intangible qualities. In addition to providing a distinctive corporate culture and attractive compensation, the key to attracting this talent is Siegfried's model of providing its professionals with a type of "accounting residency" that exposes them to a variety of new assignments, industries and types of accounting on a faster and more consistent basis than almost any other career path can offer.
"Working at Siegfried is not routine accounting work year after year," said Robert L. Siegfried, Jr., CPA, President and CEO of The Siegfried Group. "Our model is designed for professionals who wake up each morning with a passion for the pursuit of excellence and a craving for new and challenging opportunities."
Ultimately, an environment that provides interesting and challenging work will help its professionals to gain the knowledge and experience that will help them to better understand their strengths and interests, and position them for future success, a concept that Mr. Siegfried describes as the higher purpose of the firm.
This compelling professional development environment is also a win for Siegfried's clients. Fortune 1000 companies and other large organizations are able to pull in talented Siegfried professionals on an as-needed basis to assist them with important and timely projects.
"Our unique resourcing model of client service really sets us apart from other organizations by allowing our clients to pull in high-caliber, consultant-quality professionals on an as-needed basis to assist in the completion of strategic and timely projects," Mr. Siegfried said. "This exchange results in a collaborative, synergistic relationship that is mutually beneficial to everyone."
