As part of The New Equation strategy the PwC network is making an incremental US $3bn investment in quality. This includes a $1bn investment in a multi-year programme to deliver a new audit ecosystem - human-led, tech-powered and data-driven. It will enable us to make continuous improvements to audit quality by further standardising, simplifying, centralising and automating our audit work, transforming the experience for our clients and our people.
Our ambition is to contribute to our clients gaining the trust of their stakeholders and create value that lasts. We do this by delivering high quality, adding new insight and expertise to our clients, and ensuring that their reporting to the stakeholders is complete and truthful. In order to succeed in a complex and ever-chan- ging world it is crucial for PwC to develop experts who work as a team to meet the societies and market’s expectations for relevance and quality. That is why we continuously invest in new areas of expertise and services, such as ESG, cybersecurity, AI, cloud solutions and organisational culture.
