Culture

A workplace that inspires

To some, an office is just a place to get work done
At Grant Thornton, our offices are a physical reflection of our Status Go culture, built to fuel the way we work — with plenty of opportunity for collaboration, coaching and creativity. The unique local vibe of the cities in which we work and live is embedded in each design.

Our culture journey

We continually focus on fostering a unified culture, where all our people live the firm’s values of collaboration, leadership, excellence, agility, respect and responsibility. We work to ensure that each of our more than 8,000 teammates takes pride and ownership in moving our culture to the next level. That’s why we are committed to developing those opportunities and creating innovative policies like Flexible Time Off and increasing paid parental leave, so our people feel comfortable bringing their whole selves to work.
