    Our purpose

    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, Consulting, Strategy and Transactions, and Tax — 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 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 people

    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.

    Inclusive growth

    We believe a better working world is one where everyone can contribute to and share in the benefits of sustainable economic growth.

    Over the past generation, trends such as rapidly advancing technology, increased globalization and demographic shifts have brought huge benefits, but at the same time have left many people feeling like they’re falling behind.

    We believe economic growth and social inclusion must always be looked at together and increased overall prosperity can only be achieved along with more equal opportunity and outcomes. 

    Through our services, our wider influence and our approach to corporate responsibility, we're committed to supporting broad-based growth that empowers everyone to contribute to and benefit from economic success, both today and tomorrow.
