Tenzing chatbot from PwC Belgium for graduate students

Guiding students to a top job with PwC

In September 2017, we developed and introduced Tenzing, a chatbot for graduates. Tenzing encourages young graduates to upload their curriculum vitae (CV), suggests nearby recruiting events at which PwC is present, based on the user’s location, and gives job interview advice depending on the user’s input. It can also answer 60 frequently asked questions regarding working or getting a job with PwC and respond to a set of 10 intents.

Since its debut, Tenzing has engaged in over 3,800 unique conversations. The chatbot was designed for easy adaptation to other use cases.

Listening to tomorrow’s leaders

We try to make sure that all staff understand our ambitions and their role in helping us achieve them. Chairman Axel Smits holds regular lunches at which staff can ask questions, raise concerns and hear more about the course the firm’s steering. Each line of service holds regular roadshows where the leaders set

out their strategy going forward. Within our Advisory practice, we have a dedicated Young Leaders’ Sounding Board (YLSB) that enables a number of younger employees to take part in an Advisory PwC Europe leadership meeting.

Getting to grips with digital

According to our annual Global People Survey (GPS), our people are already increasingly seeking out more new ways to use technology to help grow the business. It reported a 10% rise on this index to 65% compared to FY17.

To gain most synergy from specific digital capabilities and place us in a better position to deliver holistic services to clients, a number of cyber experts from our Technology Consulting unit moved to the Assurance line of service to join a new Cyber & Privacy unit. The team supports clients with all issues relating to cybersecurity and the GDPR, for which we’ve developed a multidisciplinary solution.

Securing Belgium’s skies

Our Cyber & Privacy unit supports clients like Belgocontrol, the autonomous public company in charge of the safety of air traffic in the civil airspace for which the Belgian State is responsible, and for which we now act as security officer.

Cybersecurity is extremely important to make sure that Belgocontrol has full control of what’s happening in Belgium’s airspace. We work with Belgocontrol to identify how best to secure its operations and highlight potential risks.

Belgocontrol opted to work with PwC for this important mission according to CEO Johan Decuyper because, "PwC presented the best offer, showing greater technical capabilities and more in-depth knowledge compared to other firms. We’re experts in our business and we needed to find a partner with second-to-none skills in these specific domains. We found that with PwC."

More than offering simply advice, we delved deep into Belgocontrol’s business to make sure that we’re able to deliver relevant and workable solutions.
