Restaurant Bookkeeper’s Values
We value a ‘victor’ mindset – people who demonstrate ownership, accountability and responsibility.
We avoid a ‘victim’ mindset – blame, excuses and denial. Our list of key values are:
Demonstrate excellence in yourself and your work. If you're not proud of it, it's not good enough. Be the best you can be, and you'll get where you need to go.
Time matters. Always be on time for commitments and deliver your work on time.
Trust & Respect
Earn and give trust and respect to yourself and other. Use respectful language and ideas to build lifetime relationships and trust. Deliver on your promises.
Be the master of your own learning journey and take accountability for it. Seek Solutions and ideas at very opportunity - there's always a way.
Your life journey is a gift. You control the joy within it, so own it. Be abundant and nurturing to yourself and others. Care for your co-workers, community and the environment.
Our Logo Story
Our branding is simple – because that’s how we like to keep things.
The logo is an abstract merging of two icons of the bookkeeping and food industries.
THE BOOK DIARY
The book diary and ribbon are symbolic of bookkeepers who are committed to getting the job done by the due date and balancing your ‘books’ in real time. A book represents accuracy, compliance and knowledge.
THE RESTAURANT MENU
The menu is represented in two ways. The first is an A4 portrait rectangle menu that is common in most restaurants and cafes – either in booklet form or a single page. A nod to the foodies and hospitality industry.
The second is 3 lines grouped, which is the internationally recognised symbol for ‘menu’ in the online and digital world. Restaurant Bookkeepers take advantage of the latest cloud and digital systems to ensure your business success is at your fingertips – anywhere, anytime.
Green is a colour that represents wealth, freshness, life, harmony, growth, nature newness. These are all valued by Restaurant Bookkeepers. Black is the accounting colour of profitable bank balances. Everyone loves their bank account to be in the ‘black’ and not in the ‘red’. The ribbon is also a symbol of marking a place in time. Ribbons are also a symbol of quality and achievement.
