Managers at PwC offer training, flexibility and recognition as rewards for good work. Here’s how the professional services firm pats its employees on the back:
- Last year, the company devoted more than 2 million hours to learning and development—a quarter of it online. PwC launched a mobile app to allow employees to learn on the go.
- Thirty percent of new senior managers and director-level staff took a four-week sabbatical in 2013.
- More than 4,500 employees have attended a two-year-old program to build skills and strengthen professional networks.
- PwC allows many employees some flexibility in where and when they work. Its newly launched “plan2flex” contest rewards leaders and staff who create and carry out a flexibility plan. Nearly 11,000 staff members submitted plans.
