PwC has always been a forward-thinking organization and has been recognized as a top employer by renowned organizations like Forbes, DiversityInk, Fortune and more. As a large global enterprise with an expansive workforce that spans multiple locations and business units, PwC understands how critical it is to connect employees to enable successful business and people outcomes.
With hybrid work environments becoming the norm, PwC leaders Chris Dulny and Soula Courlas recognized that traditional barriers to connection - such as geography, departments, physical location, proximity - were no longer as relevant or pervasive. This led them to envision how they could transform the frequency and quality of meaningful connections made between PwC’s people using technology like 10KC’s.
PwC was already committed to their people value proposition (PVP), which focused on the elements that mattered most to their workforce around creating meaningful work, rewards, and development experiences for their employees - and most importantly, building employee connections.
Building meaningful connections is recognized by PwC as a cornerstone to driving their PVP. During COVID lockdowns, it became clear that these internal employee networks were integral to the firm’s success as they underpin employee engagement, retention and more.
“As an organization, we continue to experience the power of connectivity which shows up as a core element to retention, engagement, inclusion, career progression, and underpins our commitment to leading with empathy
As soon as 10KC’s Connectivity solution was deployed, the PwC People and Digital Innovation Teams began to see huge payoffs. Through the solution’s 1:1 Smart Match Introductions and the Office Hours features, they were able to seamlessly scale 20,000+ connections and 170+ small group events to support their PVP.
Notably, their Office Hours events were core to the program’s success – as they were regularly able to connect employees and leaders through fireside chats, virtual roundtables, and Q&A sessions on various topics that mattered to employees.”
By bringing their vision for a connected workforce to life via the Connection Central program on the 10KC platform, PwC has facilitated new ideas and firm collaborations. Here’s an overview of their program’s success and outcomes:

“To make hybrid working successful, it’s going to take resiliency, agility and continuous connection.”
