The success of Luxembourg in the global economy helped to drive this growth. PwC in turn made a significant societal impact over these 20 years contributing to our country’s success by attracting to Luxembourg, and then developing, some 10,000 highly educated and talented individuals of whom the majority have remained here in the country either with us or with other stakeholders. In doing so, our firm boosted the unique diversity of Luxembourg’s highly skilled, multinational and multilingual work force.
Fast forward to today. As CEO at PwC, it is a pleasure to see the great work we are doing together and the smart people I encounter every day in our firm's daily business. At PwC, we try to foster a culture of change, always keeping a long-term view. However, today we find ourselves in the midst of a revolution where our agility is more critical than ever.
We are transforming and this transformation addresses the reality that the world is changing profoundly with far reaching political, economic, environmental and social consequences. Sustainability is no longer a buzzword; it is at the heart of everything. For the first time on this planet, humanity has agreed on a set of goals – a global sustainability agenda – and this challenge, and the importance of its success, is as relevant to us as it is to our clients and society. It influences our business, our achievements, our goals and our lives.
Following the introduction of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in conjunction with this sustainability agenda, is the fourth industrial revolution, which is creating a fusion of the physical and digital. It is our job to not only listen to all of our stakeholders, but to be ahead of them, aware and conscious of disruptions. Proactively, we are developing our capabilities to anticipate our clients’ technology needs by focussing on areas such as AI (Artificial Intelligence), RPA (Robotic Process Automation), Blockchain and many others. As a forward thinking people and client - centric organisation, we want technology to enhance our collaborative potential and our efficiency.
We want to better connect to, and communicate with, our clients. Within a year, we will become the first global nontechnology firm of any size to be fully cloud-enabled using Workday, Google and Salesforce to enhance our people experience, their tools and their capabilities to ready them to serve our clients’ needs of the future.
