Creative, innovative, respectful and collaborative are just a few of the words that describe our culture and environment. We value different opinions, we encourage each other to speak up, and we look for input on everything from our most basic business processes to our most complex client matters. Our partners and managers have the responsibility for ensuring that their teams are well directed, working efficiently and learning. Our associates and seniors are responsible for ensuring that other team members are well informed about project status schedules and priorities. Our environment is all about the team — working together towards our mutual success.
While we expect nothing less than each other’s highest effort level on the job, a big part of who we are revolves around knowing that life’s not all about work — we believe that it’s equally important to appreciate family and have fun. Much of this occurs by maximizing our efficiency at the office. And some of this camaraderie occurs through SSF sponsored activities, including family picnics, formal dinner dances, happy hours, our softball team and other firms functions throughout the year.
At SSF, we not only work with the not-for-profit community, we work in it. We believe that actively participating in building a strong social and economic community is the best way to ensure that the Bay Area, where we all live and work, continues to thrive. Our SSF Community Counts™ program helps facilitate ways for all of our partners and employees to give back to the community in ways that best fit each individual.
