• Culture and Values

Grant Thornton's culture is one of our most valuable assets and has steered us in the right direction for more than 100 years.

Across the globe, we have more than 50,000 people committed to bringing our values to life every day and helping dynamic businesses unlock their potential for growth.

Reason and instinct

At Grant Thornton, we use the term Reason + Instinct as a shorthand for our different culture and approach. This distinctive approach combines technical excellence and rigour with intuitive judgement and insight. We believe this combination results in better relationships, a deeper understanding of our clients’ agendas and ultimately, more valuable and meaningful advice. Our tagline “An instinct for growth” expresses not just what we deliver to our clients, but how we deliver it.

Working with dynamic businesses

As the fastest-growing global accounting organisation in 2012 and 2013, we work with dynamic, ambitious organisations. This means we must be dynamic ourselves. Every day, we make a difference for our clients and genuinely care about helping them achieve their goals and thrive.

A culture of collaboration

With more than 50,000 people across more than 135 countries, we have a huge global reach and scale across the organisation. But collaboration and coordination remain at the heart of our culture. All our member firms work towards a shared global strategy. This means you’ll receive consistent best-in-class solutions from Grant Thornton wherever you are in the world.

Our CLEARR values

As well as a distinctive global culture, we have developed six core principles, known as our CLEARR values.

Collaboration: ask for help, give help – we work well together

Leadership:  have courage and inspire others – we challenge each other to be the best we can be

Excellence:  find a better way every time – we never get complacent

Agility:  think broadly, act quickly – we thrive in change

Respect: listen and understand, be forthright – we create honest relationships

Responsibility: use influence wisely – we own our actions
