We make the working world operate more efficiently and effectively thereby increasing productivity and returns to our stakeholders. We are enablers and we make set up our clients for success.

But in all seriousness, that's all bullshit. Most company's mission statements are bullshit. We do it for $ $ $ bills ya'll.

If you don't see the value in auditing, you should leave. Not being rude, being completely serious.

Audits are necessary but definitely not to this extent, it is not building a better world more like keeping it in check

My point is that someone must use those reports. If you create a valuation report, someone is using it no? The company doesn't just throw it in the trash.

Better than EYs^
