What are our values?

- Excellence – we never stop learning and improving.
- Courage – we think and act boldly.
- Together – we respect each other and draw strength from our differences.
- For better – we do what matters.
Why are our values important?
At a time of huge change, challenge and opportunity, our Values guide our behaviour. They inform how we act, the decisions we make and how we work with each other, our clients, the entities we audit and our communities.
Our Values are the foundation of everything we do and every action we take. They are embedded in the Code of Conduct, to which all our people sign-up.
We refreshed our Values in our 150th year, right across the international network. It means there’s a single, bold, memorable set of ideas in place globally to ensure that the principles that guide our behaviour match the world as it is today.
Our values in action
Each of our five Values is designed to work alongside the others. Our Values help us to do the right thing, especially when we’re under pressure. They bind us together, across our different backgrounds and cultures and are common to each of us.
They represent the foundation of our culture and how we show up for each other and the organisations we work with.
