Over recent years, HLB has used its innovative thinking and people-first approach to propel the network forward and experience exponential growth for the HLB global community.

HLB’s Global Annual Review 2022, published today, shows how the network drew on the skills and capabilities of its people to navigate the challenging business landscape over 2022. Using technology to enhance service offerings, HLB made multiple strategic investments to expand professional capabilities in key areas such as cybersecurity, cloud and emerging technologies.

We maintained growth in our service lines and progressed on our CSR targets.
