AccountingDepartment.com Rewards Virtual Employees With Bagels

POMPTON PLAINS, N.J., Feb. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- It takes effort and creativity to manage and motivate remote employees. AccountingDepartment.com, leaders in virtual accounting, discovered the recipe when the firm delivered fresh New York bagels and pizza to its staff of 50 virtual bookkeepers who work across the country.

The favorite foods were delivered February 1, following the busiest season for accounting departments in the U.S.

For several years, AccountingDepartment.com has coordinated pizza deliveries to thank employees for their hard work. But this presented a challenge when some bookkeepers in remote locations couldn't get pizza deliveries.

Human Resources Director Lisa Archetti, whose idea it was to ship bagels via FedEx, says, "The little things mean a lot. The bagel deliveries represented the way we'll go the extra mile to make our employees in the most remote areas of the country feel connected. Everybody, no matter where they live, is part of our team and every employee is important to us."

AccountingDepartment.com co-founder Bill Gerber adds, "We became the leader in virtual accounting services by hiring the best people in the field, giving them training in our processes and procedures, and treating them right so they stick around. When you find the right people, you have to nurture them in order to keep them."

Annual pizza and bagel deliveries are one way AccountingDepartment.com helps their employees know they are valued. Based on the emails, Facebook posts and "thank you" calls that flooded in, it works.

Bookkeeper Julie Anders' email represents a typical response: "Thank you for the wonderful bagels. I've always wondered what the hype was about fresh New York bagels. Now I know! They are delicious."
