Engagement: we’ll involve you in our business – and in the wider community

By being a part of EY you will have the satisfaction of feeling part of an organization with global influence and capabilities that can have a powerful impact on businesses and communities.

This will be coupled with the confidence that comes from having the support you need to achieve your professional and personal aspirations.

  • From our Corporate Responsibility work to our Alumni network we give you more opportunities to get involved with local communities and your peers.
  • We’ll listen to you and engage in open and authentic dialogue at every level of our organization.
  • We believe that people perform best in organizations to which they feel truly connected and empowered to make their own choices.  EY has earned a reputation for having a culture that enables people to meet both their personal and professional goals. More than work/life balance, our efforts to create a supportive culture have grown to focus on workplace flexibility: helping our people navigate where, when, and how their work gets done.
  • Your performance will be rewarded and recognized, to support you and motivate you to continue achieving your potential.

We make a difference

If you join EY, you’ll feel welcome throughout your time with us. There are many ways in which you can also enhance your sense of belonging here.

Corporate responsibility

EY - CareersYou’ve found the right place if you want to make a difference outside of your professional role. Our approach to corporate responsibility coordinates volunteering activities — in education, entrepreneurship and environmental sustainability — in a way that makes real use of your unique skills and capabilities. That way, you can have a far greater personal impact.

As part of our commitment to sustainable growth and building a better working world, we place a strong focus on sponsoring educational programs, harnessing women’s economic potential and fostering entrepreneurship.

Community engagement is also a key part of our global career development framework.

You’ll have the opportunity to develop in new and different contexts. You might be improving your public speaking, sharpening your negotiating skills or collaborating with people from a variety of backgrounds. But at the same time, you’ll be helping the community and building career-enhancing skills.

We are dedicated to nurturing an environment where people are appreciated for their contributions, extra effort and achievements in various ways. We reward efforts that go beyond established standards of expectation. We show our appreciation through various formal and informal platforms, monetary and non-monetary rewards.
