The Withum Way
WS+B’s unique culture and the relationships we value with our clients are nurtured through the daily application of The Withum Way.
Think Client Centrically.
First and foremost, the purpose behind most everything we do at WS+B revolves around the betterment of our relationships with our clients. This is the impetus behind providing ‘world-class client service.’ We fully appreciate that our clients need accounting services, but choose to work with WithumSmith+Brown.
Possess a Vision for Growth.
As a strategic partner to our clients, WS+B professionals share the vision of what your business should look like three months, three years or three decades from now. We work alongside you to get your business there.
Welcome Innovation and Change.
WS+B professionals are nimble, flexible, open and willing to learn new things, whether technology-related or continually keeping updated on accounting regulations and best practices. Ultimately, we must do what is in the best interest of our clients.
Maintain a Cooperative Attitude.
Possessing a willingness to roll up our sleeves and dig in to help solve the issue at hand is an attribute that is appreciated tenfold by our clients, as we are truly team players. And if we don’t have an answer for you, we leverage our many resources, whether with other WS+B professionals or through our strategic alliances such as lenders or law firms.
One of Fred Withum’s favorite sayings was, “Our services are for sale; not our integrity.” This truism still holds strong, as WS+B staff continue to uphold the highest levels of values and ethics, and expect the same from their clients, gaining mutual respect and trust.
Cultivate Open and Honest Relationships.
Our goal is to develop connected, long-term relationships with our clients. We want to know what is going on in the world of your business, and even how it is affecting your life in general. Because, really, isn’t it all connected? We are here to help you succeed across the board.
Embrace the Family Spirit.
WS+B people are not afraid to endear themselves to one another and to their clients. We respect and care for each other, both personally and professionally. You are not just another client; you are a friend of the Firm; a member of the Withum family.
Work hard/Play hard.
This ubiquitous motto applies all too well at WS+B. We work hard to provide the world-class service our clients expect, and then celebrate together in our successes when the job is done. Don’t be surprised if you are invited to one of our many events or golf outings; we genuinely like to do that.
Volunteerism and community outreach is an integral part of our Firm’s culture. You will never see a more caring, compassionate group of professionals than what you find here at WS+B. Do you have a charity of choice? Let us know about it! We enjoy getting involved.
Live Life Passionately.
If you don’t love what you are doing, then why bother doing it? We are zealous in our pursuit of living. Happy professionals approach their work life with the same enthusiasm with which they approach their personal lives. This enhances their relationships with clients as well as the delivery of service to them.
