Social commitment in the digital age

Advancing digitalisation and the ongoing trend towards digital learning prompted us to expand our engagement strategy in the 2020 financial year - with a partnership with the Munich-based social start-up Volunteer Vision.

Volunteer Vision is an online mentoring platform that enables KPMG employees to share their skills as online mentors with disadvantaged youth around the world. The three-pronged approach of software coupled with e-learning content and service creates impactful mentoring journeys that connect people online and across geographic and cultural boundaries to learn together. Mentors and mentees meet online via video chat and have the choice between structured learning journeys or a free exchange.

The idea of using mentoring as a methodology for lifelong learning not only promotes a change of perspective, but also brings about a significant improvement in the social skills of both mentor and mentee.
