We've come a long way as a firm since, Samuel Price, Edwin Waterhouse and William Cooper started to practice as accountants in the mid-19th century. They started on a path that has brought us to the present day, almost 230 years later.
Our founders were all about the numbers, and today the numbers speak for themselves. We have offices in 721 locations in 158 countries. The most important number for us is our people - 276,000 and counting!
What matters most to us though, is that our people are far more than just numbers. Everyone who joins PwC, at every level, brings their unique self to work every day. That’s something we recognise and value. It’s part of our mission to make sure that everyone who chooses to be part of our journey knows that their unique talent and personality are essential parts of what will lead us to success, individually and collectively. That they have the opportunity to grow and make an impact. That they are part of a culture that is founded on inclusion, development and support.
As a people business, we know how important it is to help our client organisations to respond to change, assisting them to have a point of view on the future and preparing them for it. We apply the same ethos to our business, too. We are working every day to ensure we’re fit for the future, creating an environment where our people and technology thrive together, to accomplish more than we could apart.
