EY Ghana launches alumni network

EY Ghana launches alumni network

Professional services providers, Ernst & Young (EY) Ghana has launched its Alumni Network Platform to share knowledge and experience with staff who have left the company.


The launch of the platform is to make the alumni an important resource for the company and also share its growing experience with the Alumni.

The EY Ghana alumni network would help connect all EY people, past and present, to more opportunities, more resources and more of the people they need to know for the future. 

With over 800 alumni across the country and abroad, the network is expected to create opportunities to win new business and gain insights, intelligence and introductions.

The network is aimed at enhancing professional networking; creating market opportunities and strengthening brand loyalty.

Speaking to the media at the launch of the network platform, Country Managing Partner of EY Ghana, Emmanuel Adekahlor, said the alumni are a very important resource for the company’s business and the market as a whole.

“As a professional services firm, what we sell is knowledge and knowledge is in the heads of people so the people who have gone through our walls, most of them have acquired a lot of experience working with us and some of them have built good relationships and networks.

“As they went their way, they have even built more experiences and networks so the alumni platform is to bring them and us together and when we pull those connections and social capital together, we are able to move forward in the mutual interest of all,” he stated.

“Their network and experiences, and with the resources that we also have in terms of knowledge, experience, and tools, when we bring them together, it becomes a mutually beneficial relationship,” he added.

He said another reason for the launch of the platform was to create that opportunity where the company can meet and network with people it worked with in the past and maintain that relationship.

Mr Adekahlor noted that EY Ghana would roll out a series of programme together with the alumni network in the coming years.

He said in March next year, EY Ghana would join EY global to celebrate its Alumni Week with a series of programmes.

Commenting on the 25th anniversary of EY Ghana which would be marked in 2025, the Country Partner said it has so far been an amazing journey.

“We started as the youngest of the big four in Ghana and within barely 25 years, we have been able to catch up so for us, the growth has been phenomenal.

“So we expect to be able to leverage that growth and in the next 25 years we hope to be leaders of the market. We hope to be able to continue to make big impact on clients and the market,” he stated.
