EY is pleased to announce that it has again been ranked among the world’s top organizations for turning internal information into business value.  EY is among 20 leading organizations receiving the Global Most Admired Knowledge Enterprise (MAKE) award. The accolade, presented to EY for the 15th time, is determined by a panel of Global Fortune 500 senior executives and internationally-recognized knowledge management and intellectual capital professionals.

When businesses are tackling new challenges to achieve growth against ongoing economic uncertainty, the MAKE award highlights the bottom-line value of knowledge management to help businesses operate more efficiently and better serve customers.

The 2013 Global MAKE panel specifically recognized EY for creating a learning organization. Drivers for this category include converting individual experiences into actionable enterprise-wide know-how, developing learning methodologies, tools and techniques, and a successful organizational learning infrastructure.

Jeff Green, EY’s Global Knowledge Leader, comments: “Increasingly across all industries, market leaders are harnessing the experiences and skills of their people to function more effectively, drive growth and satisfy their clients and stakeholders.

“Like the MAKE panel, we recognize the tangible results a knowledge-sharing environment can offer. For us to succeed as a global organization, it is imperative that we can bring our clients fresh, relevant insights that are connected to their business agenda — and then make the best use of our global network of professionals to deliver exceptional client service. 

“I am pleased that our efforts and results have again been recognized by the MAKE panel. Though new technology and techniques will always evolve how we create, capture and share the collective intelligence of our 175,000 people, our goal is constant: to work smarter, faster and better for our clients.”

Launched in 1998, the annual global MAKE survey is now the leading benchmark for the world’s best knowledge-based organizations. EY is a globally recognized knowledge leader, holding 15 Global MAKE awards for its strategic investment in a dedicated global network of knowledge professionals that source, analyze and distribute the latest business information, as well as converting the collected experiences of EY’s people into reusable intellectual assets.
