Some advice just states the obvious.
But to give the kind of advice that’s going to make a real difference to your clients you’ve got to listen critically, dig beneath the surface, challenge assumptions and be credible and confident enough to make suggestions right from the start.
At Grant Thornton you’ve got to be ready to kick start a career right at the heart of business.
Making a difference is part of the Grant Thornton culture, both individually and collectively. Our vision is to establish a distinctive leadership brand by creating sustainable advantage for our clients, our people and the communities across Canada in which we work and live.
From grass roots efforts to the Grant Thornton Foundation, we are very involved at both a local and national level in the communities in which we work and live. Our people make tremendous contributions that make our communities stronger. Just some of the many things our people have been involved in include raising funds and/or dedicating their time for Easter Seals, MS Society, United Way, Cancer Society, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada, Ronald McDonald House and the Heart and Stroke Foundation to name a few. Together, we commit tens of thousands of hours to our communities annually.
In 2011, we established the Grant Thornton Foundation, to provide contributions and financial support for causes that resonate with our people.
This year, for the fourth year, we ran our Campus Charity Campaign. Instead of handing out traditional promotional items on campuses across Canada, we selected three charities and invited students to help choose the one most deserving of our campus donation this year. This year, Big Brothers Big Sister of Canada, seen below accepting a cheque for $10,000 from our past CEO, Phil Noble, received the most votes. Thanks to everyone who participated in this year's campaign!
