Ernst & Young recognized as a global knowledge leading business
LONDON, MOSCOW, 10 DECEMBER 2010 ― For the thirteenth 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 2010 Global MAKE Winners.
This year, Ernst & Young is specifically recognized for creating a corporate knowledge-driven culture, developing knowledge workers through senior management leadership and creating a learning organization.
"It's great to receive this recognition once again," said John Murphy, Ernst & Young Global Managing Partner - Markets. "As the most globally integrated organization in professional services, we invest in our knowledge-sharing culture and processes on a global basis. That means that we can provide each of our clients — whether they're based in San Jose or Shanghai or somewhere in between — with the insights they need in today's increasingly complex business world."
Mala Garg, Ernst & Young’s Global Chief Knowledge Officer, 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. The MAKE award validates our efforts to make this a reality, enabling our people to grow professionally and to provide key insights and points of view on the matters of importance to our clients at just the right time.”
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.
“Employees of Ernst & Young are its core value,” says Alexander Ivlev, Country Managing Partner, Russia. “We focus on our employees’ education and initiate numerous professional training sessions and training seminars for new hires as well as for specialists who have been with the company for several years already. Therefore, the recognition of Ernst & Young as a global leader in knowledge management seems quite logical to me.”
