Culture is a core component of our business strategy.
Our internal strategy is BUILD and the U stands for 'Unifying Culture'.
That means a culture where we are encouraged to be ourselves, are inspired and challenged, collaborative and successful.
"Once COVID-19 hit and the UK went into lockdown, our purpose, values and culture were about to be put to the test. Whilst, in the past, I have publicly stated that I subscribe to the philosophy that “culture eats strategy for breakfast”, the first thing I learned during the pandemic was that only businesses with a strong culture even get a seat at the table during a global crisis.
When we first introduced our Core Purpose – helping you succeed – it unlocked something very powerful for our culture. As we prepared for COVID-19, it was clear to me that we would benefit by ensuring that every decision we make, to keep BDO steady during COVID-19, is based on our Core Purpose: what will help our people, business, wider stakeholders and local communities successfully navigate this crisis?"
