Despite the pandemic, we launched the second cohort of the Digital Accelerators programme - our technology change agent network. We had huge interest across the firm in this opportunity to develop digital and leadership skills. Applicants came from across the business and all grade groups.
The 270 new Digital Accelerators will join the existing global community of 4,000+ Digital Accelerators who have been upskilled and are now actively sharing their knowledge and applying their new skills to projects and engagements.
Digital Lab is a living repository for digital assets that can help our people make working life easier and more efficient.
The Digital Lab includes many hundreds of user created digital assets from the UK and around the globe, and makes them discoverable by the whole UK firm. These assets were invaluable as the firm shifted how and where we work. Using tools available on the Digital Lab our people were able to save time on daily admin, share innovative ways to support clients while working remotely and collaborate more easily.
Over 70% of the UK firm uses the Digital Lab on a regular basis. In the past year our people have contributed over 900 digital assets that help support our clients.
