Embracing BDO Flex, which allows BDO USA professionals to reimagine how their day-to-day work is accomplished. We prioritize the outcomes of work versus where, when or how the work is done, relying on teaming and collaboration to help us drive valued results for our clients. We trust our people to communicate with their colleagues and leaders to determine how and where they work. To implement this approach effectively, we lean into the firm’s core values and purpose, always ensuring we are doing the right thing for one another and for our clients.
We continually invest in our people-first culture and client-centered service to drive growth and opportunity. With over $2.8 billion in revenue and 12,000+ employees nationwide, BDO is at the forefront of defining the workplace experience for the U.S. middle market. From leading with flexibility to prioritizing a culture of innovation, our aim is to encourage ownership and accountability, improving how we operate to deliver greater value for our clients and our professionals. We’re constantly working to modernize the work experience for our people, creating an environment that helps them thrive.
Championing — and regularly measuring — a world-class, purpose-centered culture where people feel empowered to do their best work and be their best selves. Ninety-two percent of BDO professionals report that they feel they belong at the firm, according to our annual employee feedback survey. Survey results drive targeted, programmatic change across all levels of leadership and create a multi-year feedback loop where we address concerns, learn from our people, and ensure our culture is driving our business strategy. Through these surveys, which have an 90% participation rate, BDO uses employee feedback to drive positive people and business outcomes.
Cultivating a people-first workplace, which encourages our professionals to pursue their individual purpose and ambitions within BDO and the communities we serve. We are committed to a vision of corporate citizenship with shared responsibility for community well-being, a position we’ve proudly held for many years. Our people play an essential part in delivering on this vision and our commitment to positive change by engaging in ways that are most meaningful to them. Social impact is a defined strategic priority for our firm; 600+ BDO professionals volunteered in their local communities last year for more than 3,000 hours.
We have co-created a shared culture with our people that is the foundation of everything we do. BDO’s core values guide our culture and define how we work together by establishing a set of standards embodied in our work, our relationships and our professionals. They help us to be genuine and fair in our judgments, to build deeper relationships with one another and our clients, and to maintain an inclusive and responsible work environment.

Listening and making decisions based on BDO’s purpose. At the start of his tenure as CEO, alongside his leadership team, Wayne Berson co-created a business strategy that put culture, purpose and values at the center of all we do. That work created the foundation of being a people-first organization. Wanting to stay in touch with the insights and needs of BDO’s people, Wayne recently encouraged the formation of an Executive Team Advisory Council. The Council, formed of emerging leaders, is helping shape BDO’s future by engaging in constructive dialogue with the Executive Team to address key topics and business challenges.
