Inclusion & Diversity

At KPMG, we're committed to building an inclusive future for all.

At KPMG, we're committed to building an inclusive future for all.

To work at KPMG is to see the world differently, through many different perspectives and with a truly collaborative spirit. We empower our people to be themselves and respect others – its core to our values and what we believe in. In short, we are the sum of our people and their stories. It’s who we are.

We believe in a future where everyone feels included and diversity is embraced, because we believe a future of inclusion is a better future for all.

Cultural diversity

We have over 57 nationalities working at KPMG providing a culture of great ethnic and cultural diversity. This brings together varied experiences and perspectives that make a great place to work, as well as helping form sound relationships with our clients.

Gender equality

KPMG Switzerland employs 46% females. We have been awarded the “Fair Compensation” certification by the Swiss Association for Quality and Management Systems (SQS) and are a member of Advance Gender Equality in Business, an association that takes measures to increase gender equality in leadership positions in Switzerland. Advance promotes and supports the professional and personal development of qualified women through for example workshops, mentoring programs and networking events our female employees can take part in.

KPMG Network of Women

One key initiative is KPMGs network of women (KNOW) with the aim to strengthen an inclusive culture for all employees and to increase female participation on leadership levels.

KNOW lends a voice to the women of KPMG and hosts networking events. KPMG Switzerland moreover actively supports and sponsors external networks and events such as WomenCorporateDirectors and the Women’s Board Award.

Flexibility

At KPMG, we work hard, because we are committed to what we do. Our agile environment and flexible working models help our employees to work in the way that lets them thrive most. KPMG therefore provides a range of flexible working options such as “part-time” options or “buying additional days off”.
