An excerpt from the statement given by Sarah,
“My job is to future-proof our workforce . It just seems table stakes at this point that people should have more technical skills. It’s needed for us to remain competitive and to be responsible for what our clients are also going through.”
The training session will enable employees of PwC to be more brilliant and efficient in order to streamline numerous complexities involved in the businesses. Eventually, the savings emanating out of the streamlined process will be transferred to customers at PwC. Almost 3,500 employees of PwC are expected to have applied for the program.

Needless to say that companies from around the world especially those engaged in the role of advising clients, have to offer the latest and innovative tools that add value to the clients. Blockchain technology when incorporated with the other advisory services in place executed by PwC, will be a value added one to PwC itself!!
