CPA Exam Assistance
Passing the CPA exam requires significant time and financial commitments and is a crucial step in our staff’s career development. As such, we have an assistance program to help with the related costs, to make this goal a reality. Study materials are provided to members of the firm. In addition, the firm has a reimbursement program for successful completion of the exam.
On the Job Training
Harris also supports the development of its employees by offering annual CPE credits (Continued Professional Education credits required to be a CPA), in-house weekly group trainings and trade group specific trainings to meet their professional development goals.
Harris pays for professional dues, license fees, and subscriptions for most association our employees are a part of.
Tax Season can be grueling. The days are long, and Harris makes sure to give its employees a mental break. Each week, we have "Fun Friday" where for 30 minutes, we all stop what we are doing and join in on a game to clear our minds. We also provide pizza every Wednesday for those that are working late. Each staff member is given a "Wellness Day" during tax season: one day that they get to unplug, rejuvenate and spend time with their family. We celebrate the tax deadline on March 15th with a lunch at the office, have pie on pi day (March 14th). On April 15th, we close the office at noon and take the staff out to a nice lunch before we all head to home to be with our families and enjoy the 16th as a paid holiday. After tax season, the benefits continue. Once a month outside of tax season, we all gather for a barbecue. And lastly, we bring our significant others and families together twice a year for our Christmas Party and Summer Outing.
