Career Development Support at Yeo & Yeo
Authored by Cara Newby, Talent Manager
Imagine walking into work on your first day at your accounting firm. What do you picture? Do you feel nervous? Do you feel confident?
The first day of starting a new job can be as if you just stepped into a whole new world. At Yeo & Yeo, we understand this because we have been there. We do everything we can to make you feel comfortable, confident and welcomed.
Beginning on the first day that someone joins our firm, we jump-start a complete plan to ensure that they are provided with all the essential information they will need to be successful and enjoy their time at Yeo & Yeo. Within the first six months of employment, our employees receive:
- Access to state-of-the-art technology and resources
- Introduction into Yeo & Yeo’s Peer program
- A comprehensive, full-day orientation
- Participation in the StrengthsFinder program
- Performance evaluation and feedback, including measurable goals
- Continuous technical and non-technical in-house training
With such clear guidance, new employees can become excited about their position and responsibilities, and confident in their performance. As the Talent Manager and a member of Yeo & Yeo’s Career Advocacy Team, I am proud that we are able to provide our employees with the opportunities that will develop them into the future leaders of our organization. It is a responsibility that we take seriously to guarantee our employees have access to every resource and development opportunity they need.
Career development and the prospect of promotional paths are significant decision influencers to employees in the workforce today.
At Yeo & Yeo, we recognize the importance of professionals being able to influence their own career paths. Our Career Advocacy Team is always looking for additional ways to provide clear expectations and opportunities for our employees to move on to the next level of their career.
I understand that career development and training are integral to employee satisfaction and retention; therefore, it is one of my top priorities here at Yeo & Yeo. We are focused on guiding employees from their first day throughout their entire career. We want you to succeed, and we want you to grow.
We empower our employees to create their own career path.
Yeo & Yeo’s professionals focus on tax, audit or business consulting and have the opportunity to become an industry-specialized thought leader. The firm supports them in expanding their skills and knowledge by providing the tools necessary to establish them as a leader in the firm and community.
I hope you are as excited for your first day, as we are.
