Ernst & Young recognized as a global knowledge leading business
London, 8 December 2009 – For the twelfth consecutive year, Ernst & Young has been recognized as a Most Admired Knowledge Enterprise (MAKE). A panel of Global Fortune 500 senior executives and internationally-recognized knowledge management and intellectual capital professionals selected the 2009 Global MAKE Winners.
Mala Garg, Ernst & Young’s Global Knowledge Leader, comments: “Creating, leveraging and providing easy and contextual access of all our experiential knowledge to our practitioners and clients helps differentiate us in the marketplace. We are continuously evaluating and investing in the right people, systems and processes to allow for knowledge-sharing across geographies, business units and industry sectors. This is particularly crucial in the current economic climate as we work with our clients to help them focus on effective growth strategies. To be effective with our clients, our people need consistent access to leading practices, business intelligence, market trends and more.”
“The MAKE award recognizes our efforts to make this a reality, enabling our people to provide key insights and points of view on the matters of importance to our clients at just the right time. The award validates our ongoing focus on evolving our knowledge culture and content creation, collection and distribution processes and systems so we can make a difference to our clients and in our communities,” she adds.
Launched in 1998, the annual MAKE survey is now the leading benchmark for the world’s best knowledge-based organizations. Each year, the survey identifies organizations that stand out from the crowd in the knowledge economy. Ernst & Young is one of the few organizations to have been awarded every year since 1998, and in 2000 Ernst & Young was inducted into the MAKE Hall of Fame.
