PwC: PwC and LRN Forge Strategic Relationship to Help Organisations Operate With Purpose and Values at Their Core

Collaboration Driven by Shared Goal to Help Place Humanity at the Centre of 21st Century BusinessNEW YORK and DAVOS, Switzerland, Jan. 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PwC and LRN
today announced a long-term strategic relationship to better help
organisations elevate behaviour, define and scale their values, and become
animated by purpose.

LRN helps corporations build values-based cultures and leadership, strengthen
their ethics, governance and compliance efforts, and inspire principled
performance in their operations. The PwC network of firms provides
industry-focused assurance, tax and advisory services for public and private
clients via a network of more than 208,000 people in 157 countries.

PwC and LRN share in the belief that organisations who rise to the challenges
of the 21st century by putting purpose, values and behaviours at their centre
should inspire people, accelerate growth, drive profitability, strengthen
resiliency, deepen stakeholder relationships, and ultimately become more
successful and sustainable with greater impact on society.

Together, the PwC network of firms and LRN will develop innovative solutions
in governance, culture and leadership and in areas such as strategy, talent,
forensic investigations, enterprise risk management, and mergers and
acquisitions. They will also collaborate in advising and guiding PwC
clients' efforts in these areas. Through this close relationship, PwC firms
will also enable their clients to strengthen their ethics and compliance
initiatives through LRN's expertise, diagnostic tools and award-winning
education.

As part of PwC's own deep commitment and long-standing efforts to lead with
purpose, LRN will serve as an advisor in furthering progress on the PwC
network's culture and leadership journey.

"At PwC, our purpose is to build trust in society and solve important
problems," said Dennis Nally, Chairman of PricewaterhouseCoopers
International. "We are working to embed this purpose across our network and
the work our firms and people do each day for clients from whom we see
increasing demand to better develop and measure diverse and digital cultures.
Our history was centred around the concept of building trust in capital
markets and creating value. The PwC network looks forward to working with
LRN to help clients drive sustainable performance through culture and values.
LRN is a trusted leader in inspiring principled performance, and we believe
that there is no one better able to help us and others across the world."

"The world is not just rapidly changing; it is being dramatically reshaped -
it operates differently. It's all happening faster than we've yet been able
reshape ourselves, our organisations and our leadership. The implications
are profound," said Dov Seidman, founder and CEO of LRN. "We are excited
and honoured to collaborate with the PwC network to more effectively serve
the many organisations that realise that building and managing their human
operating system requires new models, practices and systems."
