HUBER MICHAELS BRINGS QUALITY CPE TO THE COMMUNITY
Huber Michaels is a CPA firm located in Western Maryland, far from any major cities. Their people had to drive several hours in order to attend CPE courses. Mounting frustrations with the time and monetary costs of this process led them to investigate how they could bring quality CPE to their area.
Huber Michaels worked with BLI and MACPA to make that happen. Their leadership would discuss ideas for CPE topics with BLI team members, then talk with a neighbor firm. If those courses would also benefit the other firm, they’d book the classes. The demand for this kind of on-site training was so high in the area that eventually, classes were opened to other nearby firms as well.
GRACE ENSURES ACCOUNTABILITY AND COMPLIANCE WITH ON-SITE TRAINING
Grace’s relationship with BLI began out of a need to implement a strong plan of learning for their financial staff. This was especially crucial because they were undergoing a time of business transition, during which they wanted to have the highest standards for the finance team. Some deeper thinking about the future of the company was happening among leadership, and improving the quality and accessibility of CPE was one of the ways forward that had been identified.
BLI has partnered with Grace’s finance accounting leadership to create meaningful learning for every accounting professional at Grace. On the whole, they are now able to offer their people 5-6 On-Site CPE courses a year. About 30-80 people participate in each of these classes regularly.Read More
DOLLAR TREE GETS MORE FROM BLI’S CPE THAN CREDITS
Every quarter, Dollar Tree hosts a full-day CPE session at their Store Support Center in Chesapeake, VA. Typically, about 15-30 of the company’s CPAs attend.
Dollar Tree finds that BLI’s on-site training offers not only cost-effective CPE, but also unique content options. Whereas most CPE training providers offer technical skills training, Dollar Tree turns to BLI to provide the leadership and strategic skills training their CPAs enjoy. Participants regularly mention that BLI instructors present in an engaging, dynamic way and offer high-quality instruction.
Recently, Dollar Tree has offered its team courses in leadership, productivity, time management, and other “soft skills.” While each participant takes away something different from each session, the topics and training have spurred on unique conversations around the office.
