Better begins with you

  • Share

Our people have the power to build, grow, innovate, create and add value to our clients, people and communities.

Through our peer-based global award program, Better begins with you, we recognize and celebrate EY people who have found inspiring and impactful ways to bring EY’s purpose – building a better working world – to life.

The program builds on our culture of recognition, where our people actively recognize others who do extraordinary work every day.

Our people nominate colleagues across four categories:

  • Driving exceptional client service
  • Developing outstanding leaders and teams
  • Strengthening our communities
  • Pursuing innovation

The global winners are awarded US$1m – US$250,000 per category – to invest in a project related to their winning initiative. This helps them build on their achievements, allowing their work to benefit more people and create a lasting legacy.

With our shared values underpinning their actions, these forward-thinking individuals and teams transform how we help our clients improve and grow, how we develop outstanding leaders and teams at EY, how we contribute to our communities and how we bring new ideas, products and services to market.

See how the 2016 global winners are building a better working world:
