We believe that each employee contributes directly to CBM’s growth and success, and we want our staff’s experience at CBM to be challenging, enjoyable, and rewarding.
That’s why CBM created Project Clear Path, a professional development initiative designed to help employees reach their full potential by providing a clear path to meeting personal and firm-wide goals.
Project Clear Path pairs experienced senior staff members with more junior employees. Together, they set meaningful goals and timelines for achieving them. These goals align CPE/training schedules, annual employee evaluations, and work assignments so that there is consistency throughout the firm.
Project Clear Path was rolled out in 2014 in limited fashion. After successfully completing the first full year, the firm opened up the program to all members of the professional staff.
I’m very pleased with CBM’s Project Clear Path mentorship. I was lucky to be paired with a highly successful mentor that serves as a role model and an advocate, and takes an invested interest in my development and growth with the firm. It’s a great way to provide access to and build a relationship with a member of upper management in a less formal setting.
Project Clear Path is a CBM program that develops and embodies CBM’s mission for its employees, and I’m proud to be a product it. Meeting with my mentor, feeling comfortable to have someone to go to for advice, find ways to enhance my skills as an auditor and feel confident to take on more responsibilities, have ultimately been great factors in reaching my goals and my recent promotion to Senior Accountant. It is teamwork in action.
CBM’s Project Clear Path has been very beneficial in my professional development and my recent promotion to Audit Manager. Regular meetings with my CBM mentor helped to outline responsibilities and goals needed to further my career at the firm. The initiative has been instrumental in reaching my latest promotion at the firm.
