Where is the office registered?
The U.S. holding company, Great Deal Two, LLC, is registered in the state of Kansas.
How are we going to be unique in the market?
The GR8 member firms share a common belief that work should be more than a paycheck. We strive to create an environment that fits each individual and offers opportunities for growth and development. Our belief is that the workplace culture within our U.S. firms is supported by trust in our associates and a genuine interest in their professional development. We also believe that flexibility is critical to today’s associates, which can mean a different work schedule, an opportunity to work partially remote, or simply allowing time to attend to other important matters. We also believe that work should be enjoyable, and that relationships matter. Our commitment is to build truly integrated global teams and to provide a workplace experience that rivals the best in the business.
What are the benefits of coming to India as a single firm?
Multinational accounting firms have proven success in using a global talent model for almost two decades. Middle market U.S. firms have found it difficult to build a scalable model on their own, as the costs and complexities are prohibitive. By working together, the GR8 Affinity firms are able to bring the necessary resources, speed and scale to the business.
The opportunity to work directly for a U.S. middle-market firm provides the individual attention and development opportunities that professionals seek in their careers.
Working collaboratively, the GR8 Affinity firms can exercise greater control over training, employee compensation and engagement, skill development, and deep integration into U.S. teams. The direct hire model creates an employment relationship that is interdependent and mutually aligned to benefit the clients, the team members, and the firm.
What are our future goals of GR8?
The GR8 Affinity plans to build the existing Manila, Philippines and Bengaluru, India operations to scale in 2023 and 2024, and then to commercialize the business offering to other U.S. firms. We know that there are many mid-size accounting firms in the U.S. that do not yet have an international outsourcing solution and our goal is to serve them as clients. We believe that our culture and business processes will be attractive to this market. It is anticipated that we will add new locations in both countries – and perhaps in other countries – as we grow the company.
Where do you plan to grow geographically?
We currently have locations in Manila, Philippines and Bengaluru, India and are exploring expansion to Kochi, India. We intend to grow the business beyond these two countries once established and explore new locations as we grow in our current countries and beyond.
