We've chosen to set our reputation alongside a bold purpose – by unlocking the potential for growth in our people, clients and our communities we believe we can help shape a vibrant economy where businesses and people can flourish.
We’ve embedded this purpose through three areas where we believe we can make the most impact, and have the track record, skills and connectivity to achieve it:
It's bold and we know we can't do it alone. In fact, we wouldn't want to. Collaboration is at the heart of achieving our purpose – whether that's working with banks, regulators and government to rebuild trust or working; working with the public sector to build a business environment that supports sustainable and inclusive growth.
We believe that today's world is all about connecting across businesses and industries, between public and private. And we have a track record of making that happen. Working with dynamic growing businesses is in our DNA. We provide advice to more than 40,000 dynamic organisations across the public and private sector, and working with them excites us because we know they help a vibrant economy to thrive.
Working with our clients also means we see the challenges of doing business in a complex and interconnected world first hand. This means we're in an ideal position to help turn these new realities into opportunities, and to do so in a way which makes a direct contribution to building a stronger society for everyone at the same time.
We are confident that focusing on shaping a vibrant economy is good for our clients, good for the communities they serve and good for our business.
As a Grant Thornton member firm, we are part of a network of over 40,000 people in over 130 countries. In the UK we are led by 185 partners and over 4,500 people under the UK’s first shared enterprise model.
