Wellbeing at PwC

At PwC we are committed to creating an environment that enables our people to prioritise their wellbeing and take care of themselves.

At PwC UK we're committed to creating an environment that enables our people to prioritise their wellbeing and take care of themselves. 

Care is one of our core values, and we aim to understand every individual and what matters to them, recognising each person’s value and contribution, while enabling them to grow in a way that brings out their best selves. And that’s why we want to help our people to look after themselves. We understand that being well is a balancing act and everyone experiences ups and downs. We provide all our people with the resources and tools to stay fit and healthy and the opportunity to access support when they need it.  

That’s why we have a 'Five point wellbeing charter' demonstrating our commitment to our people:

We provide our people with the resources they need to help themselves

We provide our people with a range of wellbeing resources and toolkits so it's there when they need it, including access to wellbeing and meditation apps. We provide regular guidance and webcasts on how to adopt everyday wellbeing practices such as digital dieting and wellbeing habits. Our internal learning platform Vantage provides our people with opportunities to grow. 

We offer our people access to private medical care

As part of our benefits package offering we provide all our people with access to a 24/7 Employee assistance programme (EAP) helpline and support service, private medical care so they receive confidential medical access, a Virtual GP service, counselling, and other professional advice if needed, along with a range of wider benefits that support overall wellbeing.

We provide training to those supporting others

We train our mental health advocates, wellbeing champions and career coaches to feel confident providing one-to-one support. We have a network of people across the business who have completed Mental Health First Aid training.

We have formal and informal networks in place to support our people

We have a range of networks helping to support our people in different ways. We have formal networks including the firm’s Human Capital (HC) function, our professional qualification support teams, as well as our partner networks and career coaches.

We also have a range of informal networks that welcomes anyone across the firm to join, such as DAWN, our Disability Awareness Network and SPACE, our network for parents, carers and everyone else.

We support a culture that encourages greater flexibility in the workplace

We encourage all our people to make the most of Empowered Flexibility, and adopt a pattern that suits them and their lifestyle. That even extends to what we wear to work, with our dress for your day policy. We also offer flexible working contracts where a traditional working pattern may not be quite right, and support is there to those who might be returning to work after a period of absence, or for those working towards a professional qualification. Our support is both pastoral and practical, as we ensure the right technology is in place for people to work in ways that suit them most.
