For the firm whose leadership development programme recognises leadership gaps and provides relevant and innovative interventions.
PwC’s Endeavour programme is aimed at Senior Managers. It helps them develop their leadership skills … especially the softer skills required to lead clients, colleagues, and teams. The judges were particularly impressed by three aspects of this Endeavour programme: 1. The programme employs a broad range of learning techniques, but more importantly it integrates them well and includes substantial involvement of partners both as stakeholders and 1-on-1 with participants. 2. The programme has clear goals and objectives, and the results appears to be relevant and well-measured. 3. PwC’s submission was clearly written, in a lively manner, with engaging support including video, and with relevant testimonials from participants.

BDO have put together a Success in Partnership programme which helps guide partners through their career from admission to partnership to retirement planning.
The judges were impressed by: • The whole life cycle approach which means partners are engaged with the programme at different levels throughout their career, • The structure of the programme which links to values, competencies and the different roles a partner plays, • The active involvement and participation of senior leaders.
