The team provides advice in a range of areas including:.
We're living through a fundamental transformation in the way we work. Automation and ‘thinking machines’ are replacing human tasks and jobs, and changing the skills that organisations look for in their people. We need to prepare for tomorrow's workforce, today and help our clients navigate through these challenges to develop and grow the 'workforce of the future'. Our Workforce Transformation team works with them to develop effective workforce strategies, creating new workforce designs, new environments - both physical and cultural - that will enhance workforce performance, and the employee experience.
The combination of shifting demographics and new technologies like automation, artificial intelligence, and increased connectivity are creating exciting organisational opportunities across industries: remote, agile, and flexible teams. But at the same time, an aging workforce and cultural inertia raise challenges.
We advise clients on how to build purpose-driven companies that people want to be a part of building. If an organisation isn’t meeting its employees’ or stakeholders’ expectations, the cause may be a misaligned strategy across a company's many complex, interacting organisational parts. Our experts help clients assess and redefine their strategic goals, then identify and implement the change needed to create a fit-for-purpose business.
Change and Communication
People are at the centre of any organisational change. Whether it's a large scale technology deployment, an organisation faced with challenges to its reputation, or a requirement to shift culture and behaviours, focusing and supporting people through change is critical to long term success. The Change and Communications team works with senior business leaders to develop the right strategy, articulate a compelling narrative, and design the right immersive and digital communication techniques to successfully communicate changes, and make big changes happen.

Projects are both legally and operationally complex, varied, and very fast-paced.
We also come from a really wide range of backgrounds, both in-house and consulting, and half of us are pensions actuaries, so we work in a very inter-disciplinary way. Our work involves a wide range of other teams across PwC, from Financial Due Diligence and Deals Strategy, to Business Recovery Services and operational Delivering Deal Value, as well as collaborating regularly with Legal. Often, the Deals team also acts as a gateway for other HR consulting services at the firm, bringing in specialists to deliver both during and after the deal.
