Under our Vision 2020 plans we are explicit about our purpose of building a better working world, and this has given us great momentum both inside and outside the organization.

Asking better questions

EY is committed to building a better working world. The insights and quality services we deliver help build trust and confidence in the capital markets and in economies the world over. We develop outstanding leaders who work together to deliver on our promise to all our stakeholders. In so doing, we play a critical role in building a better working world for our people, for our clients and for our communities.

Building a better working world starts by asking better questions: questions that lie at the heart of all of our services and that unlock new solutions to some of today’s most pressing challenges.

These challenges center on six major trends — entrepreneurship, globalization, urbanization, natural resources, health care, digital — that are disrupting and reshaping the world.

 

See what a better working world looks like and how we’re bringing it to life.

For our clients, these trends mean major adjustments to their strategies; and new thinking about issues such as innovation, competition, transparency, cybersecurity and data privacy.

These trends also affect us, including whom we recruit and where we invest. We look to attract a diverse group of women and men who are curious and excited about the possibilities a changing world presents; who will bring new ideas to the table to help our clients anticipate and seize opportunities.

Over the coming years we will continue to invest in the emerging markets, in technology and in new services that reflect an economy that is more global than ever.

Our understanding of our clients’ issues, our targeted investments, and our commitment to delivering exceptional client service through the highest-performing teams led to a very strong year for EY in 2015.

I’m proud of our results and the work that we do helping businesses and governments address the major, inter-connected trends that are driving all of our futures. We don’t claim to have a crystal ball. But we do believe in the importance of thinking critically, objectively and independently, and asking better questions — because better questions lead to better answers. These better answers help our clients operate more efficiently, manage risk, foster growth and inspire confidence, and, ultimately, lead to a better working world.
