We invest in our future by investing in our people.

At EY, we're a team. And like any team, our success is founded on creating great team players. Your development is at the heart of our culture. It contributes to an engaging and positive workplace for everyone, provides opportunities to reward and recognize you and helps deliver a differentiated service to our clients. It’s the foundation for continued success — both yours and ours.

The tools you need to build an exceptional career.

EYU is our global approach for helping you get the right learning, experiences and coaching you need to succeed. Whether you're a recent grad or advancing an established career, EYU offers a unique program based on your individual needs and skills.

The EYU framework focuses on three elements — Learning, Experiences and Coaching.

  1. Learning through a formal curriculum offered in the classroom and virtually — designed to help you build on your strengths, and acquire the skills and knowledge to keep your career moving forward.
  2. Experiences that put learning into action. These hands-on activities are defined, flexible, comprehensive and tailored to your needs and the needs of our clients and your firm. 
  3. Coaching designed to transform your learning and experiences into new skills and insights through purposeful conversations and relationships.

Immediate connections. Never-ending support.

Still on campus? At EY, we know that learning happens everywhere, not just in the classroom. That’s why we begin our investment in your growth and development well before you start with us full-time. EYU on-campus learning programs prepare you for the transition from school to work, introduce you to our global mindset, build your leadership skills and grow your industry knowledge. Our learning programs:

  • Provide insight into how what you’re learning in school applies to a career at EY
  • Prepare you to work on our diverse, multi-cultural teams
  • Introduce you to the skills you need to become a professional in the global economy

World-class coaching and mentoring. The keys to high-performance teaming.

Our coaching is based on a developmental mindset and the skills that we want to instill throughout EY. Whether you’re a campus or an experienced hire, you’ll have a counselor who’ll become an expert in you and your career development. They’ll help you find the career path that will take you in the right direction.

Our approach covers four main areas:

  • On-the-job coaching: helps you gain a broader perspective and address particular issues and challenges.
  • Counseling – performance reviews: allows you and your counselor to look back and evaluate your performance by bringing together and considering multiple views.
  • Counseling – career development: challenges you to explore your individual interests, aspirations, needs and options. It also creates meaningful goals — both from an annual and a longer-term perspective.
  • Mentoring: provides support, insights and practical advice on a variety of professional development and career topics.

Mentoring at EY: a reciprocal relationship

We believe the mentoring relationship can take on new heights when the relationship is reciprocal. Our best mentors not only pass along wisdom, but also learn from the people they are mentoring. This 360-degree approach to mentoring is so important to us because our mentors get as much out of the relationship as the mentees. The organic mentoring that happens in our teams ensures that new staff build the skills necessary to succeed on their engagements, and that they feel confident to mentor other new staff when the time comes.

Learning that never stops.

We’ve put a lot into our coaching and mentoring programs, and they’ve gotten noticed. Recent honors include:

We are proud to be recognized for our long-term commitment to helping our people grow and succeed at every stage of their careers.

Our EYU programs enable EY professionals, both recent grads as well as experienced hires, to hone their skills constantly both in classroom and virtual settings.
