KPMG, in collaboration with LinkedIn Learning, has launched Digital Now – a large scale two-year digital learning program. This initiative runs across KPMG Asia Pacific, and is currently available to more than 25,000 employees across nine countries in Asia Pacific. This is the first Linkedin Learning enterprise agreement amongst the ‘Big 4’ professional services firms in the region to date, and marks a significant investment in world class learning for KPMG’s employees in the region.
The Digital Now initiative is focused on enabling KPMG employees to be future-ready, by acquiring skills needed to navigate new ways of working and emerging client issues, particularly on the digital front.
“Employees will need to skill and reskill throughout their careers, and we want to make learning easily accessible for our people. At KPMG, we actively encourage and reinforce the pursuit of lifelong learning. New entrants to the job market who seek this in prospective employers tell us this is one of the reasons why they are attracted to our firm,” said Paul Huynh, Head of People, Performance and Culture for KPMG Asia Pacific.
KPMG’s Digital Now provides learners with access to over 60 KPMG-specific learning pathways on digital skills, future skills, KPMG’s strategic priorities, and key areas such as resilience and a growth mindset. This is in addition to the 16,000 courses led by industry experts already available on the LinkedIn Learning platform.
Reflecting on KPMG’s commitment to this significant investment in digital learning, John Teer, Chief Operating Officer of KPMG Asia Pacific said: “At KPMG, we are passionate about helping our people to develop the skills and capabilities to succeed and grow. We have a workforce of very talented people and we want to ensure they are equipped for what’s next. The Digital Now initiative supports this philosophy.”
