Vision 2020 - our purpose and ambition

Building a Better Working World at EY

Today’s workplace, as well as our profession, is profoundly different thanks to fundamental changes driven by globalisation and technology. Increased globalisation means there are new markets for goods and services and pressure on emerging market companies to compete on innovation as well as price. It also means major shifts in consumer markets, tax policy and workforce diversity. Technology is connecting people, spreading knowledge, saving time and freeing up resources.

EY is responding to these changes with a plan. We call this plan Vision 2020, and its objective is to make EY the leading global professional services organisation by 2020.

Our purpose: Building a Better Working World

As we created Vision 2020, it became clear that a sense of purpose runs strongly through our organisation. When we looked at the work we do for clients and what motivates all of us each day, we could see that everything we do contributes to building a better working world. Every audit, every tax return, every valuation and every interaction helps our clients fulfil their purposes and contribute to building a better working world.

Our ambition: By 2020 we will be a US$50 billion distinctive professional services organisation

Our ambition is to be distinctive; to be recognised for having the best brand; to be the most-favoured employer on university campuses, to have the number one or number two market share in our chosen services and geographic markets; to enjoy market-leading growth with competitive earnings; and to have the best relationships with all our stakeholders. As a result, we will achieve a scale to our business in keeping with our bold ambition.

We want to be known for having the highest-performing teams that deliver exceptional client service worldwide. Four years into Vision 2020 we are very much on track to achieve our goals both on a global scale and locally here in Ireland.
