Government & Public Sector
Doing more with less
Policy-makers are operating in a rapidly-changing world. Shifting demographics, urbanisation and climate change are just a few of the long-term and systemic trends reshaping 21st century government.
And with finances tight, growth stalling and unemployment high, the legacy of the financial crisis continues to play out across borders.
Our Government & Public Sector practice aims to be the preferred partner in driving transformational change for governments around the world. In countries large and small, developed and emerging, we understand the issues and can provide you solutions that will have lasting impact.
We help governments facing a changing world.
- Incorporating globalisation into strategic planning
Globalisation has had significant impact on governments, creating much greater interconnection between problems, ideas and solutions. A nation’s economic policy is no longer confined within its own borders but instead forms one link of a larger chain.
We understand these issues and can help you manage projects, taking into account the complex problems and opportunities of globalisation.
- Managing population and environmental shifts
Countries large and small, developed and emerging, are facing challenges such as aging populations, urbanisation, climate change and the need for new infrastructure.
Let us work with you to develop a strategy for these complex, long-term and systematic issues.
- Stimulating economic growth with entrepreneurs
Entrepreneurs are increasingly seen as crucial for sustainable economic recovery, and policy-makers have a key role to play to encourage this growth. Governments can do this by providing the right platform for growth through effective policies, regulation and incentives.
We encourage the work of entrepreneurs working in the government and public sector, and other areas, too. Our annual EY Entrepreneur of the Year award spotlights the best and brightest.
- Doing more with less
The financial crisis has left policy-makers tasked with delivering public services with fewer resources and at a time of rising citizen expectations. Improving efficiency, productivity and finding better ways to provide services remain priorities around the world.
Are you doing the best you can with your strained resources? We can help.
