As the firm looks to grow its human capital management offering, PwC has announced a new alliance with Darwinbox. The platform will boost PwC’s HR technology offering for clients across Europe and the Middle East.

PwC UK Chief Technology Officer for Tax, Legal and People Bivek Sharma commented, “We are thrilled to announce the alliance with Darwinbox.

Darwinbox provides a generational-leap forward for HR professionals in terms of business automation, analytics, and employee experience. Combining our deep expertise with this cutting-edge technology is an exciting shift in the way that we solve complex problems for our clients.”

Human capital management is a set of practices related to people resource management, focused on the organisational need to provide specific competencies and are implemented in three categories: workforce acquisition, workforce management and workforce optimisation. In a tightening labour market across the UK and Europe, delivering on these fronts is proving a major challenge to businesses of all sizes – leading to heightened demand for human resource consulting services.
