PwC chairman comments on new Covid-19 measures

Sep 23, 2020

Commenting on the new Covid-19 restrictions announced by the UK government on 22 September, Kevin Ellis, Chairman and Senior Partner of PwC UK, said:

“We’ve seen benefits for our people, clients, suppliers and communities of using our offices in recent weeks and they will continue to play an important role - but only when appropriate to do so. Safety and wellbeing is paramount, and we will follow the government’s new guidance. This means the majority of our people will now be working from home, unless there is a clear personal or business need to be in the office. There are aspects of our work, including audit, that require gathering of evidence and judgements that will, on occasions, require face to face discussion and on-site activities, to preserve decision making and quality. Now, more than ever, flexibility is critical in how we support our people and clients.”
