The new auditor’s report required by Swiss legislation is designed to be more informative and insightful, and give the stakeholders of reporting entities greater assurance. We at PwC welcome the new reporting requirements as an opportunity to unlock the ‘black box ’of what we actually do as auditors and increase trust in our role.
We also realise, though, that the new reports and their potential impact on governance have to be discussed and understood – not only by the auditors who produce them, but by reporting entities and their stakeholders, from shareholders to regulators. For this reason we’ve produced a short flyer explaining the major changes and their implications, including a commented overview of the structure of the new report.
You can read the flyer via the link below. Feel free to contact us if you’d like to discuss the new auditor’s report and its implications in more detail.
Creating impact, achieving results
For PwC, diversity is a priority across our network of firms because we need the best available talent to create value for our clients, people and communities. We hire and nurture professionals who take a variety of approaches to problem-solving, who are willing to challenge the status quo, who think differently from one another, and who come from many different backgrounds and cultures. We do this because to solve important problems we need diverse talent.
Our global diversity journey began 12 years ago, when the PwC network of firms first began to focus on a globally consistent approach to diversity as a business imperative and enabler for delivering our international business strategy. A lot has changed in the intervening years, particularly with regard to the decision-making that drives the operationalisation of our network approach and strategy. Through this journey we have arrived at the approach and PwC D&I story that we share with you in the report ‘The PwC diversity journey’.
