Innovative benefits packages and employee resources
We’ve led the marketplace in Innovative benefits packages and employee resources for our people that include flexible work arrangements and unprescribed sick time. We are providing our people with enhanced benefits during this difficult time, including up to $2,200 in emergency child care, $1,000 of which can be applied to elder care reimbursement; new tools for families working with kids at home and new mental health resources and coaching.
Well-being Learning Project
In January 2020, we conducted a Well-being Learning Project with the Center for Effective Organizations at University of Southern California to assess the impact of corporate well-being efforts. The primary conclusion from this study is that there is a new workplace equation when corporate well-being practices are combined with individual employee commitments to embrace healthy behaviors and attitudes. There is a measurable positive impact not only on the individual but on their teams, client relationships and overall organizational success.
A commitment to healthy behaviors is more important than choosing “the right” habits
Inclusive leadership and teamwork help enable well-being to thrive.
Corporate priority + healthy habits = business benefits.
Technology helps boost well-being.
In October 2019, we empowered our people to create Be well, work well team plans, using the power of teams to embed well-being into their experience at PwC. We now have almost 30,000 people in team plans (and counting) that include personal and team commitments to well-being practices.
In April 2019, we did what we believe to be the world’s largest corporate group meditation with the help of Calm co-CEO, Alex Tew, with over 10,000+ participants.
In December 2018, we launched a kindness campaign, generating at least 3,000+ random acts of kindness. It isn’t too late to participate. Extend an act of kindness and share with us what you did. Afterall, kindness is contagious!
Our firmwide “On the Move” event on Oct. 2, 2018 drew 20,000+ participants. Thousands of our people stepped away from work for 15 minutes — many in teams — to stretch, walk, run and dance their way to physical energy renewal. For every participant, PwC donated a pair of Bombas socks to homeless veterans across the country, plus participants got a free pair themselves.
