Welcome to our 2022 Global Annual Review. This Review has been written to provide insight into RSM’s activities around the world, the drivers of our growth, our operations, and the positive impact we are seeking to create through delivering on our brand promise – The Power of Being Understood.
The backdrop to RSM’s year, as with so many businesses globally, is one of turbulence and change. It is clear that we have entered a new and transformative business age, characterised by digital-first, datadriven technological products and services, new approaches to working, and a clear focus on sustainability and purpose-driven action. The expectations, needs and wants of our clients and people are evolving at pace, demanding that we provide seamless, personalised and forward-looking experiences and solutions, using a combination of world-class technology and expert human insight.
As the leading provider of professional services to the global middle market, over recent years, we have modernised our approaches and built our agility and resilience. We have put in place technologies to continue to deepen our dedication to quality and trust, explored new services while developing our existing offerings, and begun to look at ways to empower our people with data and automated systems. As you will read, this has resulted in fantastic growth, but we recognise that what has made us successful in the past will not alone keep us successful going forward.

RSM has always been a purpose-led organisation – existing to instill confidence in a world of change. Our aim is to empower our clients, colleagues and communities to make confident decisions – by ensuring that we work collaboratively with them to deeply understand their needs and bring ideas and insights to their environment. As such, the continued strength of RSM is thanks to the dedicated 57,000 people that work within the global organisation across many cultures and markets, their expertise, and their collective commitment to live by our values. The way we succeed, and how we help our clients succeed, is by working well together. There are many people who contribute their time towards RSM’s various global leadership teams that help to steer and guide the provision of our modern and forward-thinking assurance, tax and consulting services, and to help ensure that we operate both effectively and efficiently – whether domestically or across borders. Special thanks go to all these professionals for their efforts towards the ongoing development, sustainability and success of RSM – for giving our people and our clients the confidence to Take Charge of Change.
