As the world continues to be impacted by globalization, demographics, technology, innovation, and regulation, we need to adapt quickly and build agile people cultures that respond to these disruptive forces that “future-proof” EY. Delivering transformation on a global scale is complex but the Strategic Talent Projects team navigates this complexity to ensure that both Talent and the business achieve their goals.  


We work and collaborate globally to address complex business issues and our solutions include a focus on digital Talent transformation, large scale global initiatives focused on innovations, cultural change, efficiencies, process improvements and enabling a better employee experience.  In addition, we also focus on changes to Talent operating models, Talent strategy, and advising on the people aspects of mergers and acquisitions.


We are driven by three priorities:


  • Provide tangible value to the business through enhanced experience, increased efficiency, and reduced costs
  • Bring the best of EY together to drive change – including Talent, consulting, external vendors, and suppliers
