Empowering people and communities

Our goal is to build a diverse, inclusive, healthy and empowered workforce which delivers distinctive client service. We ensure our people are digitally upskilled and ready for the future of work and aim to create a culture that's genuinely inclusive and respectful, and promotes wellbeing both at work and beyond. We also have a responsibility to our communities, both those we work in and beyond to help reduce inequality, raise aspirations and promote social and digital inclusion. That’s why our people and communities are central to PwC’s purpose.

Approach

As a Responsible Business with people at its core, we aim to lead by example, role modelling and promoting diversity, inclusion and wellbeing to empower our people and deliver exceptional value to our clients. At PwC we have made a commitment to build a culture of Inclusion, which is fundamental to empowering our people. We have set specific targets to promote fairness and equality for gender, ethnicity and social mobility.

Our focus on Wellbeing complements our inclusion agenda, as we work towards a health-promoting workplace, where people can be themselves, and feel and perform at their best.

We also aim to extend our long standing support for our communities across the UK, by sharing our resources and skills through volunteering, fundraising and in-kind support, through the PwC Foundation specifically to advance Social Mobility and support Wellbeing in society. Through our support for Social Enterprise, we share our skills with diverse communities, and this support is extended through our Schools Engagement Programme, offering opportunities to enhance employability skills across the UK.

Collectively, we aim to ensure that our support for our people and communities means that people from underrepresented or disadvantaged backgrounds are able to make the most of their potential whether that is at PwC or elsewhere. 

Measuring our progress

We have a long standing commitment to nurture talent from all backgrounds and foster a culture that brings out the best in all of our people at PwC, as well as delivering impact for our communities.

We publish both our long and short term targets for our inclusion, wellbeing, community and social mobility programmes, and report on our progress in our Annual Report and Non-financial scorecard, which is externally assured. We also publish both our gender pay gap and ethnicity pay gap
