Working together with a common purpose

As with everything we do, our strategy is underpinned by our purpose: To build trust in society and solve important problems.

To us, these aren’t just words. Our purpose statement serves as a guiding principle, aligning the focus of our people and directing the decisions we make and actions we take. It is reflected in our leadership and governance structures, and embraced throughout the firm (and the PwC global network). It informs the clients and work we accept, and drives the quality we deliver across our business.

In addition to pursuing our purpose, we expect all of our people to exhibit the core values that underlie it. You can also read more about our strategy, our stakeholders and the external environment in which we operate.

 

 

Bringing our purpose to life

On 1 July 2019, Shirley Machaba was appointed CEO of PwC in Southern Africa. She is the first woman to hold this senior regional position.

Watch Shirley discuss her new role, including how PwC will continue to live its purpose in 2020, and beyond.

Who we are and where we operate

PwC South Africa has more than 5 100 people, including 275 partners. We operate from 19 offices across 8 of the country’s 9 provinces. 

Our head office is in Waterfall City, Midrand. As a professional services firm, our direct environmental impact is small when compared to many other industries, but we're committed to minimising it as part of being a responsible business.
