How Torben is building a better working world
"When we talk about current and future challenges related to employment, the labour market and education, and when we talk about digitalisation, growth and development - I’m convinced that we can only find the right answers and solutions if the business community plays its role. A firm like EY can make a positive difference and must be committed to corporate social responsibility. That’s what our purpose means - Building a better working world."
