One of Australia’s leading accounting firms, Ernst & Young, strives to build a better working world. Each year EY conducts a series of ‘Town Hall’ events where the executive team address staff from the nine regions across Australia and New Zealand to reflect on the year passed and look forward to the future. The events are celebratory and uplifting, facilitating a connection between leadership and staff throughout all offices.
The next Town Hall series were to be extra special as the global EY CEO would be visiting for the first time in over ten years. The spotlight was therefore set on an internal cultural shift to signal a recalibration of focus on people as the DNA and legacy builders rather than just the services provided.
