In our everyday work we naturally observe laws, directives and standards. So in this respect we're the same as any other professional services firm.
However, it's our corporate culture which contributes PwC's added value. Together, we work towards our purpose: To build trust in society and solve important problems.
Our purpose is integral to the value we create as a business and it's shared story of why we do what we do.
Our values and behaviours define the expectations we have for working with each other and our clients. They are: Work together, Care, Make a difference, Reimagine the possible and Act with integrity
Responsibility and sustainability are part of the mission statement for most companies. But for us, it's part of our everyday work experience. After all, if you offer the best advice you must also lead by example. Are we perfect? Of course we're not. But we work hard every day to become even better.
We see diversity and inclusion as business imperatives not just nice-to-haves: we respect and value differences. We do so in the knowledge that we create the most value when people from different backgrounds and with different points of view work together. Be yourself. Be unique. At PwC Switzerland.
My vision as CEO of PwC Switzerland is to be an equal opportunity and equal salary employer. I am proud that we have achieved an official certification of equal compensation between women and men by the Equal-Salary Foundation.
PwC has launched a firm-wide effort - Be well, work well - to empower our people to prioritize their well-being through the four dimensions of energy. Be well, work well is more than hitting the gym and eating healthy. It’s about energizing our people to be their best - at work and at home.
One thing symbolising our values most clearly is the way everyone, from apprentices to the CEO, is on first name terms. This reflects the respectful way we work together, our inspiring, partnership-based style of leadership, and our culture of coaching and feedback.
At PwC, we want our people to feel empowered which is why our people dress for their day.
We trust them to decide what they feel is appropriate to best represent themselves and the PwC brand. From dressing casually for coffee with the team to sometimes choosing business attire for client meetings.
