5 years ago, BDO pledged to adapt to the ever-changing environment in which companies operate and report financial information. We are so pleased to say, five years later, we have made good on that promise – and then some!

Today, BDO’s commitment to continuous improvement has taken us – and our profession – from “bean counter” to catalyst for reimagining the audit through the possibilities presented by innovation. By helping to provide the capital markets with confidence and assurance in financial reporting, what we do matters to people far beyond our own.

In the future, we look forward to welcoming graduates who will have degrees in accounting - plus data and analytics as well as accounting technology such as AI (artificial intelligence) and DLT (distributed ledger technology). These new accounting hybrids will join a profession that is powered by digital transformation and insight-driven innovation, but still purpose-driven. One that will continue to instill the values of transparency, professional skepticism, and trust, the constant essentials to success.

“Audit data analytics help Assurance professionals operate more strategically in their work, in addition to improving efficiency and audit quality. As engagement teams perform focused effort on outliers and unusual patterns within client data, we will increasingly focus energy on performing more valuable and interesting work.”

As we celebrate the auditing profession, BDO is proud to join the Center for Audit Quality and others to recognize the exceptional contributions that our auditors make to the capital markets, and the economy as a whole.
 


 

This Is Accounting?! 

Accounting today is among the most digitally-driven, data-centric, dynamic professions anywhere, and our value – to companies in every industry – has never been greater. “Day-to-day accounting work is rapidly becoming digitized and automated,” explains Brian Miller, BDO National Partner, Audit Transformation. “What does that mean for humans? More time for analysis, insight, creativity, guidance – all the things we really enjoy doing.”


 
 

 

The world is changing. And so is the way we work.

Being at the front lines of technologies like blockchain, data analytics, and other emerging forces that are shaping the auditing industry creates important opportunities for our auditors to expand their skillsets and tackle new challenges.

All of this, and a work-life balance.

BDO has been recognized as a leading place to work for numerous groups—from working moms and dads, to interns and entry-level professionals—and we believe that people who find fulfillment in their jobs produce higher quality work.


Contrary to popular belief, auditors are not chained to their desks. In a global, 24/7 marketplace, heavily regimented work-days no longer make sense for our clients, or our people. In order to meet the needs of both the market and our employees, BDO has adopted a strategy that gives our people the flexibility they need to maintain healthy personal lives, while also enabling us to recruit top talent from anywhere the nation, talent who help us deliver on the promises we make to our clients. The result: Happier clients and happier auditors.
