Building a better working world

“Even the most inspired of corporate strategies and  plans for digital transformation  ultimately depends on people doing the work to deploy them successfully and to act on their potential to build a better working world.

While we live in an age where the technological advancements may eventually render some jobs obsolete, I choose to place my faith and conviction in the innate potential and future of people. EY’s 16,000-strong global network of HR professionals spans 150 countries and regions, and by leveraging that network in conjunction with the support we provide for labor productivity improvement, performance management and leadership development, we are doing our part to build a better working world that enables people to live and grow in harmony with digital innovation."
