As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact societies around the world, I am increasingly proud of the collective resilience shown by Grant Thornton member firms as they respond to these unique challenges while continuing to support their people and clients. As we share our experiences and learnings with each other the network is more connected today than ever before.
This year we launched our Go Beyond network strategy 2025.
The strategy is designed to grow and protect the Grant Thornton network with a particular focus on risk management and quality, alongside the development of strategic capabilities and an international network culture. It is an intentional shift toward greater alignment on common methodologies, learning, technology platforms and culture.
It will guide the direction of the global network through to 2025, as we continually work to improve the sustainability and inclusiveness of our own operations and strive to make a positive impact on the clients, people, markets and communities where we operate - in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
I strongly believe the private sector has a responsibility to deliver sustainable business solutions and, as a professional services organisation, we must play a pivotal role in progressing the sustainability agenda.
With 58,000 people in over 130 countries, Grant Thornton is committed to going beyond business as usual to deliver a different experience. More personal, agile and proactive. Our open-minded culture leaves space for a diverse range of opinions and we will continue to challenge conventional thinking to find better solutions. So our people, clients and communities can positively shape tomorrow.
