Our purpose focuses on how we contribute to society, and how our business decisions can contribute to greater trust and solving important problems. In order to achieve our purpose and deliver a first-class service to our clients, we need first-class support internally. The people who power us - our internal teams - have a vital role to make sure we have all the right resources, services and technology to be the best we can be. Not all of us work directly with external clients. As part of PwC's global strategy, The New Equation, we're investing significantly in skills, capabilities and technologies to address the breadth and complexity of the challenges that our clients face with their businesses and in society. One of our responses to this was establishing Tech Central, a technology focused function working alongside other PwC teams. Technology is now at the heart of how our clients deliver their services. The complexity of systems, increasing use of data and the continuous investment in technologies by our clients, creates new challenges, but equally, opportunities, as to how we assess our client risks and build trust in society.
