At Mazars, more than ever, we believe that businesses can thrive only by creating shared value for all their stakeholders. Publishing our 2017 Yearbook is a way to take stock of what we have achieved this past year. As a part of our 2016-2017 Annual Report, it also aims at providing a clear and global image of who we are and how we prepare the future. From open innovation to stewardship, from the future of the audit profession to our teams' perspective on the future, we have chosen to shed light from various angles on the notion of transformation.
To cover this topic, which is of key importance to us as a global organisation, we have interviewed internal and external stakeholders in South America, Europe, the Middle East and South-East Asia.
Innovation is disrupting virtually every business model, but how does it really work? The industrial era model, based on secretive, silo-based processes within companies, is now obsolete. When it comes to creating new services, new products or new solutions, the concept of assembling ideas, resources and expertise from a variety of players, of different natures and sizes has gained considerable traction.
From Chile to Singapore via Paris and Cairo, we have interviewed those who today drive the open innovation movement: 30 start-up founders as well as representatives of big corporations, accelerators and incubators. Get ready for a new paradigm, based on competition between ecosystems.
Stewardship can come in many ways, shapes or forms. However, they all have one thing in common: they aim at ensuring the sustainable development of an organisation. In Chile, our teams help Baron Philippe de Rothschild establish its position as one of the country’s premier wine makers. In Egypt, they strive to continue on a journey that started 75 years ago. In both cases, long-termism is of the essence.
They are auditors, advisers, business developers or digital experts. They live and work on all continents. They are passionate about technology and make the most of it everyday. They also love their jobs, but long to be agents of change. They want to travel the world, get to know new places and meet new people. They have goals and dreams. They are the many faces of Mazars. And this is how they look to the future.
The Yearbook is an entry point into a much larger world. All its stories, in full length, together with a lot more content is available all year round on the http://sharedvalue.mazars.com dedicated website.
