PwC has been announced as a worldwide leader in ‘Workforce Management Consulting 2019’ by ALM Intelligence, a company that studies the global consulting marketplace, to provide analysis and rank the best providers across a range of services. As well as a leader, PwC was recognised as having the largest breadth of workforce management capabilities in the market, and was also named as the best in class provider for assessing client workforce management needs.
ALM ranked leaders are at the top of the market in terms of creating client impact through their depth of expertise and ability to deploy it across a range of engagement models. They are unique in their ability to independently execute a broad array of projects, with the aim of improving an organisation’s ability to plan for the human resources, skills, and workplace environment needed to achieve business objectives and goals.
Commenting on PwC’s strength of workforce management expertise, Liz DeVito, director at ALM and author of the report, says:
“PwC has evolved its approach to provide services that focus on helping clients build an organizational capability for strategic workforce management. For example, the firm’s Workforce of the Future Accelerator Workshops model new ways of working, e.g., scenario planning, agile co-creation, and design thinking, while the learning solutions practice, as they train clients on the use of workforce management accelerators and tools.
“The firm seeks to help clients navigate the evolving landscape of workforce management with an outside-in approach that instills awareness of the external operating environment into a disciplined process for building and implementing people strategies. To this end, the firm mobilises a comprehensive, globally consistent, and structured yet flexible suite of services to address the full range of issues exposed by workforce management practices that lack vision, purpose, and clarity.”
