Trust to go aheader

At PwC we don’t just go ahead with things that are important to us, we go one step further: we go aheader.

Obviously ‘aheader’ is a made-up word. We created it deliberately to show that we’re willing to go one step further when it comes to the things that matter most to us. ‘Trust to go aheader’ is intentionally designed to provoke people into thinking, talking and acting. It symbolises our spirit to be bold, to stand out from the crowd and differentiate ourselves as a forward-thinking employer. It’s what makes us unique. In summary: ‘Trust to go aheader’ means that on the basis of trust and with the personal contribution of every individual, together we will adapt, develop, grow and transform the future of our firm and industry.

Our Purpose 

Changing Lines: Mirco's volunteering experience

Changing Lines is our key talent programme that gives managers and senior managers the opportunity to work in an entirely different setting (i.e. mental health institution) for five days. The real-life circumstances in the unusual context provide a perfect learning situation. This is Mirco’s story.

Equal Salary Certification

Our vision is to be an equal opportunity and equal salary employer. To show our commitment for our vision, we strived for Equal-Salary certification, an external audit of equal pay between men and women.

We are proud to announce that as of 29 October 2018, we are entitled to carry the “equal-salary certified” label. This means, for the same job in your team and considering your age, years of experience and other factors, we pay the same total compensation irrespective of your gender.
