Today FORTUNE magazine released its annual list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For and we’re proud to be included for the 12th year in a row. This is not only an honor and an opportunity to humbly learn from other successful organizations — it’s a time to reflect on what we’re doing well in this competitive market for top talent, and what we could do even better.
The people who join PwC have high expectations of us. They are looking for experiences that help them grow; flexibility in how, when and where they work; and the opportunity to do work that has meaning. And we have high expectations of them: to lead themselves and others in a fast-changing world; to team with others who have different backgrounds and experiences, and to do work that solves important problems and builds trust in society.
In this war for talent, success is a two-way street. We gain people who bring the values, capabilities and insights that our clients expect, and we help our people develop the skills and perspective that top professionals will need at every stage in their careers. The result is something the world needs more of – leaders who can adapt to change, and help to drive it too – whether they stay with PwC or put their skills to work in the corporate, public or not-for-profit sectors.
A great place to work starts with all kinds of great people
We know that the talented people we want to attract have more choices as well as greater visibility than ever before into what it’s like to work for PwC. And they have that same transparent view into other great companies that are equally hungry for top talent.
We also know that it’s important to our people to work for a firm that reflects their values around inclusiveness and contributes to society in ways that go beyond being a profitable business. For PwC, that means that our actions need to match our words, and we must continue to progress in our efforts to foster an environment where people of different skills, backgrounds and experiences can bring diverse perspectives to complex challenges.
