Our Culture – More than just professional success.

BDO Gisborne’s core purpose is helping people thrive, every day. And that doesn’t just mean our clients. We strive to help everyone at BDO thrive both in and out of the office – to grow as professionals, while meeting their commitments to their families, communities, and personal lives as a whole.

We can summarise our values as follows:


We are committed to working in a respectful, ethical, confidential, and independent manner.

Richer Relationships

We recognise that the relationships with our clients, with our staff, with members of the business community and with each other are key to everything we do.

Mutual Support

We strive to maintain an inclusive, supportive working environment where teamwork and relationships matter.


We demonstrate leadership and take personal responsibility for our actions.


We deliver excellence to our clients, our staff and each other. Learning and development is crucial to our success.

Social Responsibility

We are active members of our communities, encouraging social responsibility and we are environmentally aware.

To that end, BDO Gisborne maintains a number of initiatives to support our people, both in and out of the office.

BDO Flex

Workplace flexibility is more than just a benefit. In today’s 24/7 global work reality, it’s essential. From the day-to-day flexibility to attend a child’s soccer game, to a formal arrangement to work from home long-term, BDO Gisborne allows our people to adjust where, when, or how much they work – even the types of work they do. Everyone has unique needs, responsibilities, and interests, and so we encourage our people to find a mutually beneficial mix of workplace commitment and personal flexibility. 

BDO Green

Green business is better for the environment – and for BDO too. BDO Green is our commitment to both protecting the planet and improving cost efficiencies, including company-wide recycling initiatives and local efforts to reduce energy consumption. 

BDO Counts

BDO Counts is our volunteerism program. In addition to nationwide initiatives, such as our annual cycling events, BDO Gisborne supports a wide variety of local activities.
