A Company Built To Last

FIRM HISTORY

When Larson & Company began in 1975, the objective was clear: offer the best audit services possible to insurance entities. As the first firm of our kind in the nation, we remained true to our vision and have since grown to be one of the largest insurance accounting firms in the country. Our philosophy has always been to offer personalized service to insurance companies, and we still follow that philosophy today. Our dedication to vision and purpose has given us a solid foundation in which to move forward to offer the best possible audit and tax services to clients of all sizes and in all industries. 

We have since expanded to serve businesses in a wide range of industries, including technology and software, manufacturing, nonprofits, government entities, large corporations, small businesses, and individuals. Our reputation for friendly, affordable service is paired with our staff’s accounting knowledge and accuracy. Our firm is structured to remain long after the founders are gone, because we’re invested in your future success. Our company’s mission statement is “Larson is not for sale.” This means we don’t want to merge or conglomerate with another firm just to have an exit plan. We care too much about our clients to leave them behind when partners retire. Our vision is simple: There will always be a Larson & Company to continue to offer our clients the highest level of personalized service available. 

A Different Service Philosophy

Our company motto is “Achievement Through Constant Improvement.” Our founder, Dennis Larson, demonstrated to us that we are inherently happier when we are improving. Each employee is required to set goals each year that involve both business and personal aspirations. Our firm makes a constant effort to help provide everything necessary for our employees to achieve their goals. This philosophy of constant improvement carries over to our clients. We know that if we can assist you in achieving your goals, you will value our relationship, and both you and our firm will be rewarded with growth and success.

A hallmark of our service is our availability to our clients. Whether it is a quick phone call to answer a specific question or routine advice on an ongoing basis, our partners, managers, and staff are available to you year-round, not just during your audit or tax preparation. 

WE LOVE OUR CLIENTS!

#LIFEATLARSON

Working at Larson & Company gives you the tools to reach your personal and professional goals.

Professional AND personal goals are encouraged

To stay focused on our cause, we all participate in an employee professional development program, called the Expectations Agreement. This program truly sets us apart from other firms. With this program we define our personal and professional goals and our expectations of the firm, while our managers define the firm’s expectations of us. How well we measure up determines our share of the bonus pool. We have regular feedback meetings quarterly with our managers to work on things throughout the year, to ensure we are aware of ways to improve and also congratulated on successes. This helps us to be continually improving and working on our goals constantly. As you achieve more, your level of responsibility naturally increases, giving you the ability to move ahead quickly in the company.

Larson is the vehicle…but YOU are the driver

Larson & Company could be compared to a car that can take you to your goals…but YOU are the driver. Your level of personal effort is the deciding factor in your achievements. Larson & Company supports employees in achieving their goals and cheer them on as they do it. If you are willing to take the wheel and advance through personal initiative, you will succeed at Larson & Company.

Work and play are not mutually exclusive

It is possible to be an accountant and have both a life and a personality…even during busy season. We encourage our employees to have a little bit of fun together, including office barbecues, impromptu ping-pong games in the afternoon, and surviving an escape room as a group. Good work may not be entirely contingent upon good working relationships. It is, however, much more efficiently and pleasantly produced when such conditions exist. With this in mind, we make sure our team has the chance to let off a little steam at times. We offer gym membership reimbursement and tuition reimbursement programs, Casual Friday every day during summer months, and a company-sponsored Wellness Program that encourages healthy habits and challenges us year-round.

Your voice matters

Larson & Company’s future is determined by the sum of our individual goals. No one is too “junior” to make suggestions, formulate propositions, or present business plans. In fact, we encourage this type of thinking.

Clients benefit from our success

When we are personally fulfilled and constantly improving, that mindset spills over into the way we serve our clients. Because we want the best for each of our clients, we do everything we can to not only meet their needs, but also anticipate their needs, troubleshoot problems, and suggest alternatives that will help them secure “achievements through constant improvements.”

Transparency and trust

It would be hard to know how well you have performed if you had to wait a few months to see the results. We believe in transparency and understanding of our firm’s financial position with each employee. To foster this sort of understanding, our managing partner reviews our financial statements, firm announcements, industry announcements, and company changes every month during staff meetings.

WE LOVE OUR EMPLOYEES!

Here’s what our employees have to say about working at Larson & Company

I feel like I got more experience at Larson as an intern than I would have anywhere else. I wasn’t treated like an intern. I did actual work. I worked on entire audits, not just one section of an audit. Larson has a very friendly, open, and educational atmosphere. — Daniel Bringhurst, Audit Manager

I feel like I can actually make a difference in the firm and for my clients. The leadership at Larson is very approachable and they truly listen to the concerns and suggestions I may have for the firm and my clients. Their “constant improvement” mentality allows me to set goals that are applicable for myself and has helped push my career to the next level.

At Larson, we are in the business of providing opportunities for growth and development. Both employees and the firm are expected to make and achieve goals that contribute to individual and collective success. Success is defined in our firm as making continuous improvements. The goals we are expected to make and achieve are not confined to just business and career based goals. We are also expected to make and achieve personal and family goals. The firm is committed to help us achieve all of our goals. A wise man once said, “People are inherently happier when they are continuously improving.”
