CLA was established as a different kind of professional services firm, built to create opportunities for private businesses, public companies, governments, nonprofits, and the people who own and lead them. What’s more, we want to be known for our inclusive family culture, for careers that inspire people, for an equitable workplace, for the results of our work, and by our integrity. That’s why we uphold the CLA Promise: to know you and help you.
The CLA Promise is a commitment to put relationships first, while always working to exceed expectations. We make it our business to understand the motivations, dreams, fears, and goals in any relationship we encounter, inside or outside the CLA family. We demonstrate our promise through our industry-driven, seamless approach — and our industry-leading financial results. And we do all this while inspiring our CLA family and impacting the communities around us.
