BDO is proud to be an ESOP company

At BDO, our purpose of helping people thrive every day is at the heart of everything we do. Together, we are focused on delivering exceptional and sustainable outcomes and value for our people, our clients, and our communities. BDO is proud to be an ESOP Company, reflecting a culture that puts people first, by sharing financially in our growth in value with our U.S. team.  BDO professionals provide assurance, tax and advisory services for a diverse range of clients across the U.S. and in over 160 countries through our global organization.

BDO is the first large accounting and advisory organization to implement an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). A qualified retirement plan, the ESOP offers participants a stake in the firm’s success through beneficial ownership and a unique opportunity to enhance their financial well-being. The ESOP stands as a compelling addition to our comprehensive compensation and Total Rewards benefits offerings. The annual allocation to the ESOP is fully funded by BDO through investments in company stock and grants employees the chance to grow their wealth over time as their shares vest and grow in value with the firm’s success, with no employee contributions.

Flexibility at BDO

As the needs of our people and clients have evolved, so has our flexible workplace strategy. Our approach to flexibility gives our people the power to collaborate with their teams to decide where and how they work based on their firm and client responsibilities. 

Because everyone has unique needs, responsibilities and interests, flexibility at BDO is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Time spent working at a BDO office, client site or in a remote location can vary from week to week, team to team and engagement to engagement. We encourage our people to find the individual arrangements that benefit them, our clients and our colleagues.


Global Mobility through BDO’s Secondment Program

See what our professionals say about the program.

Self-teaching and asking questions – I think those are the best ways to learn. There was this one time with this spreadsheet and … long story short what could have taken me 5 minutes took me about 2 hours. I should’ve asked. But if you don’t ask, the next best thing is to learn from your mistakes. What’s great about BDO is they encourage both types of learning.

Former Tax Intern
The thing I loved most about working at BDO? When the partners say they have an “open-door” policy, they actually do. But it’s even more than that. One time, a partner and I were working on the same 10-K. He came over to my desk to check if I had found any errors that maybe he had missed. And that’s how they treat all their interns, with that level of respect.
