PwC has been created by the merger of two firms — Price Waterhouse and Coopers & Lybrand — each with historical roots going back some 150 years. PwC is one of the world’s pre-eminent professional services organisations. As professional advisers they help their clients solve complex business problems and aim to enhance their ability to build value, manage risk and improve performance. As business advisors they play a significant role in the operation of the world’s capital markets. They take pride in the fact that their services add value by helping to improve transparency, trust and consistency of business processes. Their core values of excellence, teamwork and leadership help them to achieve growth.
While they conduct their business within the framework of applicable professional standards, laws, regulations and internal policies, they also acknowledge that these standards, laws, regulations and policies do not govern all types of behavior. As a result, they also have a code of conduct for all PwC people and firms. This code is based on their values and it takes them to the next level—demonstrating their values in action. The code also provides a frame of reference for PwC firms to establish more specific supplements to address territorial issues. With offices in 776 locations and across 157 countries, its not surprising to learn that they have lots of opportunities for talented people to join them.
