At EY, our purpose is Building a better working world. The insights and quality services we provide help build trust and confidence in the capital markets and in economies the world over. We develop outstanding leaders who team to deliver on our promises 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.
In a world that’s changing faster than ever, our purpose acts as our ‘North Star’, guiding our more than 300,000 people — providing the context and meaning for the work we do every day. We help digital pioneers fight data piracy; guide governments through cash-flow crises; unlock new medical treatments with data analytics; and pursue high-quality audits to build trust in financial markets and business. In other words, working with entrepreneurs, companies, and entire countries to solve their most pressing challenges.
Through our four integrated service lines — Assurance, Advisory, Tax and Strategy and Transactions — and our deep sector knowledge, we help our clients to capitalize on new opportunities and assess and manage risk to deliver responsible growth. Our high-performing, multidisciplinary teams help them fulfill regulatory requirements, keep investors informed and meet stakeholder needs.
We believe a better working world is one where economic growth is sustainable and inclusive. We work continuously to improve the quality of all of our services, investing in our people and innovation. And we’re proud to work with others – from our clients to wider stakeholders – to use our knowledge, skills and experience to help fulfill our purpose and create positive change.
Our purpose — Building a better working world — is the foundation of our culture.
At EY, we empower our people with the right mindsets and skills to navigate what’s next, become the transformative leaders the world needs, pursue careers as unique as they are, and build their own exceptional EY experiences.
Our more than 300,000 people and one million alumni form a powerful network. Each of those people leads and inspires others during their time at EY and beyond and brings our purpose to life in the work they do every day. The ability to invite, leverage and learn from different perspectives is key to delivering for our clients. We believe diversity and inclusiveness means growth.
We are investing more time and money than ever before in skills and learning for our people. This includes the first of its kind EY Tech MBA, in collaboration with Hult International Business School. It builds on the success of our EY Badges program, which helps our people develop future-focused skills in areas such as technology, sustainability and leadership.
Committed to diversity and inclusiveness
To demonstrate our commitment on diversity and inclusiveness, the Global Executive (GE) has signed the EY GE D&I statement, which underscores our increased focus.
Building a better working world is an ongoing commitment to improving the economic and social landscape. It’s not something we will or won’t achieve. We have to work at it as an ongoing process.
