Big changes can start with something small.

Discover how we’re building a better working world by asking better questions.

The world today is changing rapidly. From technological advances to shifting workforces, society is headed in a new direction. But with everything moving so fast, how can we move towards a world that is changing for the better?

New technologies present both opportunities for progress

As organizations grapple with challenges to meet energy targets laid out by the Paris agreement, could supply chain efficiency help tackle pollution challenges ? And can sustainable energy can drive sustainable growth in economies around the world?

The recent rise in the number of not-for-profits is also a reflection of the growing demand to address the long-term needs of our planet. But these organizations often lack the necessary expertise to fulfil their plans. Could business skills help them to transform our communities? And can our diverse communities in fact help to transform businesses?

Working at EY

As we visualize the country Morocco, all these clichés may spring to mind — a reflection of the highly successful Government-backed campaign to turn this North African country into a tourist destination. Today, Morocco is the most visited country in Africa.

But, tourism still only makes up one-fifth of the Moroccan economy. To create sustainable, inclusive growth for its 35 million people, the Moroccan Government recognizes that it needs more than tourism.

Currently, around 45% of the working population are still employed in agriculture, despite this only driving around 12% of GDP. Manufacturing, mining and textile production are all growth areas in Morocco, with huge potential. But, with energy making up between 3% and 30% of manufacturing costs, depending on the industry, access to affordable and reliable energy has been a significant factor in industrial investment

Clevry and the EY resourcing team therefore held a number of listening groups across all areas of the business to understand what their customers and candidates were looking for from a system, what was in use already in the UK, and where things were headed in the future.
