PricewaterhouseCoopers to support new network strategy with 6 focus areas

By Itohan Abara-Laserian

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Africa has announced six key focus areas that will support execution of its new global strategy, “New Equation”, announced on June 15.

The Chief Executive Officer, PwC Africa, Mr Dion Shango, disclosed this in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos.

Shango highlighted the PwC Africa’s six key focus areas for the new equation strategy as: trust, growth and value creation, ESG, digitisation, international development and workforce.

According to him, PwC Africa’s commitment to quality and exceptional service delivery unites the key focus areas and remains the foundation of the strategy.

He said that the strategy would help in shaping trust building and delivering sustained outcomes.

At the heart of the strategy, he said, was quality and continuing investments in further enhancing quality and expanding PwC’s capabilities.

“Our purpose as PwC is to build trust in society and solve important problems.

“The new equation will shape how we help to build trust as well as how we deliver sustained outcomes as a community of problem solvers.

“Quality is at the heart of everything that we do and it is the foundation supporting our execution of the new equation strategy.

“PwC has been in the African region for over 70 years, and we continue to be optimistic about the opportunities in the continent.

“In response to technological disruption, climate change, fractured geopolitics and the continuing effects of COVID-19 pandemic, amongst other challenges, many organisations need to refocus and that’s where we can help with the new equation,” he said.

Shango explained that audit and assurance remained a critical aspect of PwC Africa’s business and as such, the firm will continue investing significantly in the area of business, including investment in technology and up-skilling of people to be more digitally-enabled.

According to him, the new equation focuses on two interconnected needs that organisations face in the coming years.

These, he said, included building trust across a wide range of areas that were important to stakeholders and delivering sustained outcomes in an environment where the risk of disruption was more intense than ever before.

He added that PwC Africa’s six focus areas would help in addressing the needs among clients, communities and other stakeholders in sub-Saharan Africa. (www.)
