Taking care of our people

Since the beginning of the outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) which rapidly evolved into a significant challenge for the entire world, the safety of our people has been our top priority and continues to be our main focus, while maintaining high quality services for our clients. PwC Greece continues to take considered actions in line with those indicated by the National Public Health Organization (EODY)   to ensure the safety, health and wellbeing of our people, clients, guests, suppliers and contractors.

In these new circumstances, we continue to understand the importance and benefits of managing resilient and recoverable operations to service our clients. We have designed the most important aspects of how we deliver client service to be fault tolerant, minimizing any single points of failure. From how we use technology, operate engagement teams and utilize internal PwC services, our operations are highly resilient and secure. We recognise however that even enhanced resilience has its limitations.
