Our Core Values

core values

At PwC we have chosen three core values— Excellence, Teamwork and Leadership as the basis of our global corporate culture.

These values define how we want to conduct ourselves and our business, and help us to create value for our clients, our people and our organisation.



Means that we deliver what we promise-and add value that goes beyond what is expected. We achieve Excellence through Innovation, Learning and Agility.

Means developing creative solutions and putting them into action.
Being the largest firm and establishing ourselves as clearly the best-in our industry means developing innovative ideas and putting them into practice successfully.

We learn by continuously developing-and deepening-our knowledge of our business, and the skills of everyone within it.

Being alert to change and moving quickly and decisively to meet the challenges that emerge from such change; so that we provide our clients, and ourselves with a competitive edge.

The best solutions come from working together with both colleagues and clients. Effective teamwork demands strong Relationships, Respect and Sharing.

Building productive, long-term relationships with clients and each other.
The way we treat each other in achieving our objectives is just as important as what we achieve. That's why our people enjoy working in PwC and why our clients like us and enjoy working with us.

Embracing diverse cultures, communities and points of view.
With offices in 151 countries and over 35 working languages, our people and our clients cover a wide diversity of cultures and communities.

Readily sharing experience, resources and opportunities.
The range and depth of the knowledge and the timelines with which we share it with our clients is fundamental to our success.

Means leading with clients and leading with people. Leadership in our business is defined by courage, personal integrity, and having a vision which inspires and motivates others.

Seizing the initiative, and welcoming responsibility.
Almost all of us, at every level, can play a leadership role. We want our leaders to speak out, make themselves visible, and promote their views. They must be creative, thoughtful and innovative, but they must also be accountable and take responsibility for their actions.

Seeing the bigger picture.
We don't just want people with courage, we want people with vision, in other words, people with a clear idea of what they would like to achieve.

Being trustworthy and honourable.
Integrity, honesty, and accountability are at the core of our business. We adhere absolutely to the independence and objectivity requirements under which we do business.
