We believe our people are the most important element in our success as an organization, and we have created a number of programs designed to support them throughout their careers. Whether that be by providing enriching work experiences, supporting flexibility, connecting through affinity groups, providing opportunities to serve our communities in a variety of capacities, or offering a menu of rewards and benefits, we aim to show our people that we are invested in their success. And we know that when we celebrate the power of our collective differences, we enrich our dialogue and contribute to the strength of the firm. And it doesn’t stop when our people leave the firm; we also support our growing alumni community with training, events, and other resources. We also offer programs such as our Flexibility2 Talent Network, which provides alumni and experienced talent with an attractive option to work for PwC a few months a year while pursuing other interests for the remainder of the year.
“I cannot think of a more wonderful benefit than my ability to work from home a few days a week. When my workday is done, I shut down, close my office door, start dinner, and spend the extra time with my family.”
Karen Lehn, Manager
One of our Corporate Responsibility (CR) goals is to have 100% of our people participate in CR activities each year. We’ve learned that those who are engaged in giving back have longer tenure with the firm and higher job satisfaction overall. During FY13, 71% of our people participated in CR activities.
