Bridging the digital divide
Since launching our New world. New skills. programme, PwC has reached more than 10 million people through our community projects.
Building on our work with clients, we are working with other organisations to improve digital skills in communities where the need is the greatest. Still, more must be done to ensure everyone has the opportunity to learn, work and participate in the future digital world. This is at the heart of our purpose.
Organisations are transforming their workforces to drive productivity, innovation and growth. Upskilling is key. It’s about anticipating the right skills for the future, laying the cultural foundation, delivering modern upskilling programmes, and building a learning and development function with the right EdTech to deliver a vastly better return on upskilling investment. Find out how we can help you upskill.
The need for new skills goes much further than our own business. We aim to help millions of people around the world improve their understanding, skills and knowledge for the digital world. The transition to net zero will also transform our economies and our societies, and we will need new skills in many different sectors. That’s why we are collaborating with others to tackle the challenge.
PwC’s collaborations are is just one of the many ways PwC is helping communities upskill and build on the network’s existing community impact programmes that have been focusing on this challenge for many years. Through our people’s volunteering and support, our New world. New skills. community programmes have reached 10 million beneficiaries.
Solutions to the upskilling challenge need to be developed at the local, regional and national level; no one organisation can do this alone. Government leaders and policymakers need to enable citizens to the knowledge and skills to participate and thrive in a future workforce, while also driving the discussion on the future of technology and regulation. Institutions, such as those that make up the education system, need to digitally transform themselves and — at the same time — provide services that are fit for the future.
PwC recognised that as we continued to evolve as a business, we had to upskill our global workforce. So we set out on a mission to change the way we work, while creating space for our people to learn, build, and scale innovation.
Our journey to become a digital business doesn’t stop there though. We are a human-led and tech-powered network. We are equipping our people with new skills, digital tools and capabilities to be successful in the future and helping clients solve their most challenging issues. Find out more
