The world is changing, and with it, how we work

Globalisation, technology and generational shifts are driving a significant realignment in what we’re seeking from work. We want our working lives to have meaning and purpose, and to link what we do with our goals and passions.

Grant Thornton is strongly committed to empowering our people to have meaning and purpose in their lives, to be authentic to who they are and to feel comfortable voicing diverse opinions and perspectives. This way, we create the best outcomes for our clients and for each other.

Grant Thornton’s bold strategy

Our 2020 Strategy responds to this changing world and sets Grant Thornton on a path of audacious initiatives for the next five years that place our people and clients at the heart of everything we do.

Our 2020 Strategy expresses our determination to grow Grant Thornton as a distinctive firm of bold and creative thinkers and doers. The initiatives – some of which are below – tell the world that we’re committed to delivering a unique and distinctive culture, where our people are given the flexibility to balance what’s important in their life with how they work.

These industry-leading initiatives show we’re serious

  • Industry-leading parental leave package for primary carers
  • Real work/life balance – Grant Thornton’s Flex Appeal allows you to work how, when and where is best for you
  • Ambitious gender and ethnicity targets
