Perks and Programs

We asked HORNE LLP to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Fearless Unrivaled Flexibility: We believe a firm that values people, excellence in client service, and differences in career/life choices is more energized, engaged and more productive. Our Wise Firm culture gives team members the freedom they need to be energized, engaged and contributing to their Full Potential. We believe that too much management and too many rules stifle creativity. Our Fearless Unrivaled Flexibility is founded on three principles: commitment, trust and communication. We focus on results, not time. Our Fearless Unrivaled Flexibility is a privilege that is earned by exceeding client expectations and living our formula.
  • Belonging at HORNE: Belonging at HORNE is about using our diverse strengths, ideas and talents as we support each other in reaching our Full Potential. It is our commitment to help you find a sense of belonging, purpose and empowerment. A sense of belonging is a building block of the Wise Firm and a priority in how we engage team members.

Team members invest their time in valuable causes every year, serving with passion to help our communities reach their Full Potential. Each team member is given paid time off to participate in a firm-organized community service activity.
  • Continous Growth Philosophy: Instead of an annual performance review, HORNE has a Continuous Growth Philosophy. It is a mindset that exists when team members are freely and intentionally collaborating with performance advisors, sponsors, coaches and other colleagues to realize their Full Potential. This is achieved in our culture of ongoing feedback/conversations focused on people development through timely, honest and constructive feedback, transparency and ongoing coaching.

How to Get Hired

We asked HORNE LLP for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

We seek positive energy in prospective talent.  Positive energy goes a long way at HORNE, so we’re always looking for team members who want to share their positive energy to help us build the Wise Firm.  Since we’re a firm that focuses on outcomes (not time or effort), prospects need to demonstrate strong results for us to view them as high performers. We also look for team members who will create a sense of belonging for each other, so the ability to create connections is critical to success here.  We’re a great place for people who strive daily to reach their Full Potential.

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Prospective team members can get our attention by demonstrating results and sharing positive energy.  Show us how you’ve created value for your clients, how you’ve exceeded expectations and how you’ve interrupted the status quo, and you’ll have our attention. 

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

We are focused on talent recruitment this coming year across all focus areas. Our people sourcing strategy will include both a mixture of fully engaged HORNE team members and a pool of HORNE-ready resources. We call this integrated strategy HORNE, Too. Decide when, where and how you work at HORNE with careers and projects you design. Whether you are a recent college graduate or an experienced leader, HORNE offers career opportunities to help team members reach their Full Potential.
