Why our culture makes us a Top Workplace in Northeast Ohio

Last month, we celebrated a momentous achievement in our firm’s history…we were named a 2018 Top Workplace by the Plain Dealer and Advance Ohio…for the first time!

This was certainly a great honor for our business, but it’s also a celebration of our culture. We’ve always lived by our founder’s motto of “Full service. Full value.” throughout the forty years we have been in business, but this wouldn’t have been possible without the guidance of our leadership team and the employee culture we have all created together.

Whether you’re a potential employee or current client, our goal is to exceed your expectations both in a business aspect, but also by building a real relationship with you. We can only do that if we all work together to create a fun, positive environment filled with the best talent in Northeast Ohio! Being a Top Workplace was only our first step.

But instead of us telling you, we’ve summed it all up by asking our awesome team what they like best about working here and why our culture ranks high against other area companies:

What do you like most about working at Hobe & Lucas?
“Work-life balance. Hobe & Lucas provides employees with the opportunity to earn as much paid time off as possible, while also compensating them for overtime hours worked.”
“The partners all really care, not only about your success at the firm, but about your success as an individual as well. The ability for work-life balance and being included as part of the Hobe & Lucas team is sensational.”
“The variety of work and the opportunity to learn about so many different facets of accounting and tax as it pertains to businesses and individuals.”

How would you describe the work environment?
“The diversity of work that I do based on my experience and skills along with unique projects or challenges allowing me to step outside my comfort zone in a positive direction.”
“Supportive and helpful, with everyone willing to kick in and help each other when needed.”

How would you describe the culture?
“Fosters a culture of learning.”
“This firm provides a very unique office environment where everyone you come in contact with is exceptionally humble and kind.”
“A positive work-life balance, which keeps me engaged and motivated.”
“A team oriented environment where everyone is given appropriate responsibilities.”

And the best answer to the final question is something one of our team member’s said, but we all believe: We’re here to help our clients, first and foremost.

So what’s next for us (and you)?
We’re excited to continue to grow our team, our capabilities and our leadership in this region to ensure we can provide the best tools and knowledge to run your business. Whether you’re an existing client or thinking about partnering with us, we’re working hard to create even more value for your business. The first forty years have been built on working with the best clients who need a CPA firm with national level services, but with a small firm mentality. We’re excited for this honor and the next forty years ahead!
