PricewaterhouseCoopers plans to spend $12 billion and hire 100,000 new people in areas such as artificial intelligence and cybersecurity by 2026, the latest move by a Big Four accounting firm to bet big on technology.
The planned hires will boost the company’s global workforce of currently 284,000 employees by more than one-third, said Tim Ryan, U.S. chairman and senior partner at PwC. The London-based professional services firm expects its staff count to exceed 384,000 five years from now, making up for any attrition with additional hiring.
