• PwC Named a Leader in Talent and Leadership Consulting

    PwC was ranked top for depth and breadth of consulting in the ALM Vanguard for Talent and Leadership Consulting. ALM Intelligence ranks leaders based on their ability to create client impact.

    Liz DeVito, author of the report, states, "PwC stands out for exceptional breadth and depth of consulting capabilities bolstered by a diverse combination of resources, including its Strategy& affiliate, Katzenbach Center, PwC Saratoga, and one of the most comprehensive portfolios of digital assets in the market today."

    ALM outlines their criteria as follows: “Leaders are at the top of the market in terms of their capabilities to create client impact through their depth of expertise and ability to deploy it across a range of engagement models. They are unique in their ability to independently execute a broad array of projects across the full spectrum of client contexts.”

    The report assesses PwC’s approach, notably their focus on creating clarity and implementing cross-functional alignment, “The consulting approach seeks to create clarity around the value proposition for aligning talent to business strategy and transforming siloed capabilities into a talent ecosystem that transcends the boundaries of HR. The firm’s Workforce of the Future platform was designed to help clients achieve a level of clarity that enables the development of an integrated, multidisciplinary, and centralized approach to talent management.”

    DeVito notes PwC’s holistic approach to the employee lifecycle, stating, “PwC’s resources are based in the People & Organization (P&O) practice, although the firm’s holistic approach to the business challenge engages the expertise and capabilities of consultants across the consulting, digital, real estate, risk, tax, and transactions lines of business. P&O practitioners provide a comprehensive portfolio of services grouped according to the talent lifecycle: recruit and onboard, develop and deploy, measure and manage, reward and recognize, and review and transition. Above all is an employee experience offering that delivers services in workforce management (e.g., change and culture), workplace digitization, and data analytics”

    The author goes on to review PwC technological capabilities, stating “PwC’s Workforce of the Future platform provides the client with a framework for thinking about how social, technological, and demographic trends might reshape their workforce and talent requirements…Connecting to the business strategy is a function of PwC’s strategy-to-execution service delivery model, while the firm’s BXT philosophy ensures an end-to-end transformation method that incorporates strategy, design, and implementation.”

    PwC was also named “Best in Class” in Enabling Tools. Devito remarked on PwC’s capabilities, "PwC possesses an enviable collection of pre-built talent analytics solutions designed to help clients address their top workforce concerns from talent acquisition, retention, and performance to learning management and total rewards. The firm excels at combining advanced analytics and data visualization in tools for easier adoption by executives, front-line managers, and individual employees."

    Bhushan Sethi, Joint Global Leader, People and Organisation, and Partner, PwC, states, “We are delighted to be ranked top for talent and leadership management. The world of work is rapidly changing, with new ways of working, developing technologies and evolving talent needs. We also realize that each organisation is unique. We believe talent is the backbone of an organisation and our goal, at PwC, is to support our clients in implementing solutions that serve their people and therefore the group as a whole.”

    Nicky Wakefield, Leader, People and Organisation, and Partner, South East Asia, PwC added, “We are thrilled by this placement. Throughout the employee lifecycle, we ensure organisations can find, nurture and incentivise the right adaptable, innovative and skilled people they need for the digital age.”
