At KPM, we believe a career in accounting requires a unique platform to learn and advance. That is why, at both our Springfield and Branson, Missouri offices, we provide a collaborative working environment. We know our employees are the key to our exemplary client service and vibrant culture. Our career professionals have ample opportunities for advancement, competitive benefits, volunteer opportunities, and a family-friendly atmosphere.
We pride ourselves on our dynamic working environment. It is important that each employee wants to be here and, as such, we do our best to provide ample opportunities for fun and development. We encourage giving back to the community through our KPM CARES program and as a part of this, provide hands-on volunteer opportunities and professional development through memberships and activities for growth. We also take every opportunity we have to celebrate together as a firm.
KPM offers a competitive benefits package that includes employee and family health insurance options, retirement plan options, profit sharing, life insurance, paid time off and paid holidays, paid CPE to meet CPE license requirements, business development and staff referral bonuses, and more.
At KPM, we are truly embracing one of our firm’s core values – ‘Public Spirit’ and making tomorrow better than today. In celebration and recognition of team members who exemplify this value, KPM offers the ‘Spirit’ award to one deserving team member each month. A team member who has been recognized by a peer or supervisor for embracing the firm’s vision, mission, and core values is eligible for the honor.
Each KPM team member completes the GALLUP® StrengthsFinder assessment, which analyzes responses to a set of questions to determine an individual’s five signature strengths. Through the StrengthsFinder assessment, insights are gained into team members and their natural talents. Coaches and team members discuss the results and their signature strengths, and coaches then help their team members continue to play into their strengths or provide further guidance to draw these talents out to experience peak performance.
The purpose of the coaching program at KPM is to enhance performance and nurture career development of team members. While the annual appraisal is a crucial component of the coaching relationship, it is merely one prong under the performance management umbrella. Team members have a number of responsibilities to themselves and their coach. Coaches and team members have regular conversations and stay in contact for feedback and guidance. At KPM, our coach and team member relationships are built on two invested and dedicated partners.

"Every team member, whether shareholder, manager, supervisor, staff, or administrative, is treated as an adult. Everyone is trusted to act in the best interest of the firm. Because of that, we hold ourselves accountable so we preserve the trust of others. The firm's culture allows us to embrace our individuality without compromising our professionalism. I like to say that the firm is large enough to handle any job, but small enough to still care."
