DON’T let PwC Philippines’ 95th birthday fool you: this near-centenarian firm is teeming with dynamism and innovative tech.
The firm currently owns 82 digital inventions across its global network, allowing its Philippine office to offer its clients all that’s cutting edge, from analytics to robotics, as it brings more and more industries and businesses to digital—a trend that the firm and its consulting arm see as a new area for growth.
PwC Philippines has already been advising clients on the use of drone technology. It also leverages partnerships with Google and Saleforce.com to unlock values for marketing.
The firm itself is walking its talk. Now mobile-oriented and cloud-driven, the firm points to a tech-savvy history: it’s been conducting paperless audits, and practicing a 1:1 laptop policy—since the 1990s.
It has also built itself the support systems required to introduce Quality Work Hours—not to be confused with flexible work hours—a program which imposes limited work time at the office. Pioneered in the Philippines, the Quality Work Hours program has already been observed to improve productivity, although aimed to improve wellness of its people.
