Thriving in the new normal is not simply about workplace agility and technology. To adapt to an even more digital future, businesses need to have the right talent — with a focus on developing the next generation of skills and future-proofing people’s potential through continuous training and leadership development.
In October 2021, KPMG in Singapore welcomed the addition of 6 new Partners in the firm.
Ong Pang Thye, Managing Partner, KPMG in Singapore, said: “We have embarked on a journey into exciting new frontiers in a post-pandemic world. This calls for us to reimagine the way we work with our stakeholders — our clients and our people.
“Therefore, we have a diverse range of expertise and people who are as passionate about the work they do as they are about the people under their care. These new Partners all possess the ability to bring people together, to lead the way with excellence, and to discover new ways of doing things.”
On 1 March 2021, KPMG in Singapore welcomed the addition of 10 new Partners in the firm.
Ong Pang Thye, Managing Partner, KPMG in Singapore said, “Last year, we focused on preservation: keeping our firm afloat, and making sure that we could protect all our jobs. This year, we want to focus on recovery, and I am heartened that in just the past two months, we have already taken the first few running steps towards it. More doors are opening, and new opportunities are presenting themselves. In this situation, we need fresh new leaders to join the fray to help lead us into this new normal.”
Nearly half of the new Partners are joining from other firms, and two of them heading up global and regional portfolios. They bring with them a diverse range of expertise that will help bolster the firm’s offerings, especially with the emergence of new business needs in this post-pandemic world.
