Earlier this year, we took a bold step to create FORVIS through the merger of equals of BKD and Dixon Hughes Goodman (DHG). Since then, our teams have worked to build something new in FORVIS while continuing to innovate, exceed client expectations, and create remarkable careers for our people.
We are excited to share with you the results of an important aspect of our integration: a new framework for our firm’s culture. We call it our FORVIS DNA. It includes our new purpose, mission, vision, and values, which we refer to as The FORVIS Way. It’s a set of “values in action” and outlines behaviors that make us unmistakably FORVIS. One of those values in action is “Delivering an Unmatched Client Experience™,” a phrase you’ve likely heard us say often. This is a bedrock value for us, and you’ll be hearing more about how we execute on this in the future.
The following is a high-level look at the FORVIS DNA. We hope you find it inspiring and useful in understanding what drives us and how we will serve our people, our clients, and our communities—now and in the future.
