San Diego, Calif., November 12, 2017– The San Diego Union Tribune has named Pro Back Office the #18 Top Small Business Workplace in San Diego. Jennifer Barnes and Mike Ford founded outsourced accounting firm Pro Back Office in 2012 and established a rewarding and empowering company culture that puts people before profits.

Contributing to their win, Jennifer and Mike have established an impressive company culture and employee benefits. Mentorship programs encourage employee growth within the company. Employees can earn points through the “Bonusly” program, encouraging staff to work hard and maintain positive attitudes. Last year, Pro Back Office was able to give out over $40,000 in bonuses, through the program.

Team members enjoy flexible hours and partake in a Volunteer Time Off policy that offers for every three hours of time they donate to a non-profit, Pro Back Office will offer four hours of paid time off.

Jennifer Barnes shares, “As a service-based business, it is essential that we recruit and retain the best and brightest team members. The key to building a strong and happy team is creating a culture of respect. Listening to your employees, asking for their input, and appreciating their contributions is essential for finding and keeping an ‘A’ team.”

Mike Ford continues, “We have experienced remarkable growth which means we are constantly hiring new talent. This year, we also had the opportunity to acquire a new business and incorporate their employees into our team. Having a strong company culture and clear expectations helps to ensure that new hires quickly and easily find their stride within the team.”
