PwC has a new shared purpose statement: “Build trust in society and solve important problems”. The purpose is meant to help us inform our choices and continue to drive real change. Most importantly, it will help to secure our position as the leading professional services network. Our alumni play an essential role in getting this right.
Our purpose also resonates strongly with our brand promise: “My relationship with PwC helps create the value I’m looking for”. Sharing, collaborating and building strong relationships are the cornerstones of our great brand. PwC provides its people with a wonderful work experience and helps them to develop strong relationships that, when they choose to move on in their careers, stand them in good stead. Our many successful alumni, who have made significant contributions to many aspects of our economy, bear testimony to this point.
Our Africa region has grown from strength to strength since its inception, and our PwC brand continues to be distinctive, as evidenced in our latest Brand Health Index survey. This can be attributed to our people, the services that we offer, our unwavering commitment to quality and high standards, and our culture that is built of providing a unique PwC experience.
PwC is a lifelong experience - our commitment to you starts on the day you join the firm and extends past your employment with us. Our alumni programme will help you to maintain contact with our firm and each other and can support you by providing access to services and activities which meet your needs and interests. This includes personal and professional networking opportunities, new career opportunities and professional development.
I look forward to engaging with you at one of our alumni functions.
