PwC and LRN share in the belief that organisations who rise to the challenges of the 21st century by putting purpose, values and behaviours at their centre should inspire people, accelerate growth, drive profitability, strengthen resiliency, deepen stakeholder relationships, and ultimately become more successful and sustainable with greater impact on society. 

Together, the PwC network of firms and LRN will develop innovative solutions in governance, culture and leadership and in areas such as strategy, talent, forensic investigations, enterprise risk management, and mergers and acquisitions.  They will also collaborate in advising and guiding PwC clients’ efforts in these areas.  Through this close relationship, PwC firms will also enable their clients to strengthen their ethics and compliance initiatives through LRN’s expertise, diagnostic tools and award-winning education. 

As part of PwC’s own deep commitment and long-standing efforts to lead with purpose, LRN will serve as an advisor in furthering progress on the PwC network’s culture and leadership journey.

“At PwC, our purpose is to build trust in society and solve important problems,” said Dennis Nally, Chairman of PricewaterhouseCoopers International. “We are working to embed this purpose across our network and the work our firms and people do each day for clients from whom we see increasing demand to better develop and measure diverse and digital cultures.  Our history was centred around the concept of building trust in capital markets and creating value.  The PwC network looks forward to working with LRN to help clients drive sustainable performance through culture and values.  LRN is a trusted leader in inspiring principled performance, and we believe that there is no one better able to help us and others across the world.”
