In today’s digital age, we’re increasingly seeing entrepreneurs with a gift for coding, and a keen sense of business giving traditional businesses a run for their money. Yet growing alongside technology, are valid concerns related to cybersecurity, data privacy, and the proliferation of fake news.
In this age of digital disruption, populism is also on the rise. The only way to sustain and grow a business is to earn the trust of stakeholders. We recognise this.
Our purpose to ‘build trust in society and solve important problems’ guides us. It is what we kept in mind, as we carved out our four-year strategy in 2017 that focuses on three pillars:
This year, you’ll notice that our report goes beyond Corporate Responsibility reporting. Instead, it has been prepared in line with Integrated Reporting principles.
As a global professional services firm, we acknowledge that we are in a position to create value for our clients and a rewarding career for our people, while making a positive impact on society and our environment. Our report covers some of our key activities throughout the year, from paid and pro-bono engagements, to the many programmes we’ve initiated to give back to our communities. It also details where the firm is headed – particularly our investments to digitise our business, and how we’re growing our non-audit services.
We are happy to share that we have been active in increasing the diversity of our talent pool, as well as in enhancing our work place practices. For instance, in 2017, we launched 3 new initiatives under our flex+ programme: flexCare, flexMed, and flexMum.
We have also continued to invest in our people’s development, helping them grow as PwC professionals. We do this by fostering a culture of continuous learning through our ‘My Growth Journey’ framework, where real time feedback coupled with formal and informal learning opportunities are given emphasis.
In line with our goal of digitising our business, we have introduced a fully online report to give our readers a more intuitive experience online, and to cater to mobile users who are constantly on the go.
We have set some important goals for the future. Goals that will help us differentiate ourselves and serve our stakeholders in these extraordinary times. Start exploring the links below to learn more about how we hope to achieve them.
