PwC LLP is introducing a work-anywhere policy for its 55,000 U.S. employees, allowing them to choose an all-virtual work option in a bid to keep and attract workers.
The U.S. firm will also require staff to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 to visit any PwC office or visit clients as of Nov. 1, PwC confirmed to Bloomberg Tax & Accounting.
- The firm’s new flexible work policy, announced to staff on Thursday, responds to shifting norms and needs of its teams amid an ongoing global pandemic. PwC said the change will also help to expand its reach to potential hires as well as retain top talent in a competitive market.
- The largest accounting firms have increasingly embraced flexible work arrangements that let staff decide where to work on any given day with a focus on using the office to bring teams together for training or planning. But PwC is the first of the Big Four firms to announce such an expansive policy.
