PwC UK recruits business ethics adviser

PwC UK has recruited corporate philosopher and Cass Business School professor Roger Steare to help company leaders better embed integrity in critical business decisions.

PwC UK said Steare is to enhance the firm’s knowledge and skills of organisational change, business strategy and regulatory standards, enabling individuals and organisations to “do the right thing”.

PwC forensic services team partner Tracey Groves said business leaders are facing pressure to do the right thing but are often struggling to incorporate integrity and ethics into their business thinking.

“An enhanced global regulatory environment, increased boardroom focus on the mitigation of high impact risks and heightened expectations from stakeholders are all adding to that pressure,” she said.
