In one of its most significant steps towards achieving greater credibility and transparency, Bitar Group has contracted Ernst & Young as of 2021 to audit its companies.
Ernst & Young, one of the Big Four accounting firms with over 200,000 people in 150 countries, provides audit, tax, business risk, technology and security risk services, and human capital services worldwide. It delivers results, reshapes strategy, enables innovation and transformation, and helps companies address the tax and regulatory requirements.
"We are in the business of creating value for our clients, employees, suppliers, communities, and stakeholders. We believe that when organizations such as Tawfeer Supermarkets align their aims with society's, transparency being the main element here, they will be more valuable and viable in the long term. That is exactly why we chose Ernst & Young to represent us," says Mr. Rami Bitar, CEO of Bitar group.
To achieve purposeful growth, Bitar group has opted to align itself with globally reputable organizations such as EY and Mayer Brown, both entities that provide a level of service crowned by excellence. "It keeps us focused on developing the solutions that help us deliver better outcomes to our clients. Investing in EY keeps us aligned and focused on our stakeholders' needs during these challenging times and beyond," says Mr. Rami Bitar.
By doing so, the Bitar group would be holding themselves accountable while continually focused on what more they can do and how can their actions reflect their commitment to improving how they operate constantly.
Looking ahead, organizations will face complex and inter-related challenges. Improving resilience, trust, and transparency in operations in new, responsible, and different ways allows for better results and achieving customer expectations.
"We invest in global expertise and innovation to consistently improve the quality of our services. We're delighted to collaborate with EY to leverage our knowledge, skills, and expertise to further our mission and effect positive change. Says Mr. Bitar.
