The COVID-19 pandemic has been a human and economic tragedy that has deeply affected the lives of many people including members of our PwC family, their relatives and friends. Our heartfelt condolences go out to all those who have lost loved ones.
When the pandemic struck, we adapted quickly across our network to support all of our stakeholders during this unprecedented time. Protecting the safety and security of our people and preserving jobs. Working with clients to deal with the immediate impacts of the pandemic. Using technology to seamlessly deliver quality audits. And helping the communities in which we live and work, from supporting healthcare systems, to distributing food and medical supplies, to providing humanitarian relief efforts in emergencies.
As the global economy has slowed, so too has demand for some of our services and, like for many other businesses, the next 12 months are going to be difficult. But, we are well placed to preserve jobs, support our stakeholders and continue to evolve.
Looking ahead, the breadth and depth of the knowledge that we have at PwC and our ability to provide a comprehensive range of services have never been more important. There has never been a more pressing need to deliver wider assurance and rebuild trust. To help our stakeholders navigate tax and legal systems and to develop the workforces of the future. And to help our clients rethink and reconfigure their businesses for a changed world.
The pandemic has amplified some of the biggest challenges in our society, demonstrating the urgent need for systemic change. Social inclusion, the need for reskilling and the pressing challenge of climate change. All symptoms of a deeper problem: our economies are not delivering sustainable, inclusive outcomes for society. We’re committed to playing our part in helping to address these challenges. We are working hard to build the PwC of tomorrow for the benefit of all our stakeholders and to help build trust and solve some of society's most pressing problems.
We're committed to reporting how we create value for a broad range of stakeholders and are on a journey to expand the metrics and disclosures we cover in this Review. Below are a few highlights.Read more
