BP has been recognized each of the past six years as one of the “Best Accounting Firms to Work For” by Accounting Today. In 2016, Inside Public Accounting recognized us as one of the “Top 200 Firms” and in 2017 Puget Sound Business Journal gave us the “Corporate Citizenship” award for our philanthropy contributions.” We gain these accomplishments in part because we care about our clients’ families and companies as if they were our own. We also believe work should be more than just a way to make a living; rather, we think the role of each of us in the firm should lend to our personal growth and fulfillment.
