Company Updates

  • As our president and CEO said, “While we are living during an important time in history, this is much more than a moment – this is a movement.” H&R Block is taking action. Read more about our commitment to advocating for and creating racial equality here: http://hrblock.io/Equality

  • Racial injustice isn’t new or limited to the names on the news, it’s everywhere. Our black associates recently shared personal stories that were infuriating and heartbreaking. It’s time for new stories and we’re committed to being part of it.

H&R Block – Why Work With Us?


undefined


In 1955, two brothers set out to provide the public with the highest quality tax services. Today, we continue to serve our clients, our community, and our brand with the same passion our founders held. 

The brand synonymous with taxes for decades continues to lead the industry with innovative thinking and advanced technology. Millions of clients also use our digital solutions to prepare their tax returns. And now every H&R Block Tax Professional has the added power of data to help get clients their maximum refund.

By combining the knowledge of our highly trained professionals with cognitive computing technology, we’re offering clients our most personalized tax experience ever. This is the future H&R Block is building. It’s one our founders would be proud of – and one that is true to our mission of looking at life through taxes, and finding ways to help.

A little more about us:

  • We've prepared more than 720 million tax returns since 1955
  • We have over 12,000 retail locations, with offices on nearly 100 U.S. military bases around the world
  • Over one-third of H&R Block's retail network is locally owned and operated by franchisees -- small business owners who live and work in their communities

We live in a digitally hyper-connected world, and yet few people know their neighbors, small business owners often need connections more than capital, and in general we are more disconnected than ever.

H&R Block believes communities improve when neighborhoods and small businesses thrive–when people connect and unleash the power of people helping people. That’s why we launched Make Every Block Better, our community impact program, that supports how we work to foster more conversations and help people and small business owners connect to their community.

We’ve partnered initially with the Kauffman Foundation, the KCRise Fund II, Habitat for Humanity, the Urban Neighborhood Initiative, and Nextdoor to bring a unique mix of partners together to foster connections and help communities thrive. And our associates and franchisees regularly volunteer in their local communities, finding their own ways to Make Every Block Better.

At H&R Block, we are uniquely suited to help tackle this issue of isolationism in our communities. Every year, across more than 10,000 H&R Block offices nationwide, we engage in conversations with more than 12 million Americans. That’s 12 million hours of connecting and relationship-building. 

H&R Block is committed to building connections one block at a time, city by city, coast to coast – until together we Make Every Block Better.

At H&R Block, the personal and professional are in harmony.

Over the years, H&R Block has grown to become much more than a place to have your taxes prepared. As a growing company, we need bright, creative thinkers to grow with us. We're looking for people from diverse backgrounds who can help us reach our goal: to become our clients' tax and financial services partner.
 
In return, we offer our associates — both full-time and seasonal — an atmosphere where unique perspectives flourish, where partnership is encouraged and a healthy work/life balance is a corporate goal.
 
Our Corporate Office

Our corporate office is located in the premier downtown Power & Light district of Kansas City, just steps or a streetcar ride away from countless restaurants and entertainment venues.  We have an onsite fitness gym and coffee bar, an awesome company cafeteria, and frequent opportunities to get discounted or free tickets to a variety of entertainment venues and shows around the area.
 
Culture:  The power of partnership and shared ideas

H&R Block began with two brothers rolling up their sleeves and helping people with their tax returns. Despite our tremendous growth, we've never lost sight of the key factors that led to our success, including superior customer service, a commitment to stand behind our associates and work, and a promise to always charge a fair price for the value provided.

We believe in the power of partnership and the open exchange of ideas. After all, if one of our first clients hadn't suggested we advertise our tax services, we might not be where we are today. It's this kind of active listening and observing that enables us to continue evolving and providing clients with unbeatable service.

Although we're proud of our humble heritage, our eyes are on the future.


 
 

At H&R Block, we believe in our people, and with that belief is our commitment to your total well-being — physical, financial, career, team and community. Together, when we balance all of these components, we are achieving personal strength, team strength and organizational strength. Our comprehensive benefit offerings provide you access to benefits that will help you plan for the health and security of your family.

Develop your skills. Build your career. Manage your personal life. At H&R Block, you can.

Although we expect our associates to be dedicated and committed to their work, we truly understand that a successful and enjoyable life depends on a combination of many things — both personal and professional. We know you have a life outside of work, and we do our best to ensure you have the time and energy necessary to live it.

We offer both regular, year round positions, in addition to seasonal roles.  Many of our seasonal associates come back year after year (seven years on average) because they enjoy the flexibility of having several months off to enjoy family, pursue other career interests, travel, and more!

Community events and concerts

Corporate office associates also enjoy frequent opportunities for free concert and other entertainment venues, and downtown parking is always free in our covered garage (even on the evenings and weekends for events!)

Every associate can and does make a difference.
At H&R Block, we're proud of our dedication to building a diverse company, and we envision the H&R Block of the future as an even more diverse and richer workplace than we are today. We strive to create an atmosphere of inclusion, where diverse interest group members feel respected, empowered and rewarded for providing quality products and services.
