The KPMG culture is rooted in our values. Our integrity and policy of open and honest communication builds trust and collaboration, while our flexibility and diversity creates a culture in which people share knowledge freely, bringing out the very best in each other. Asked why they choose to work with KPMG member firms, many clients talk about our high level of professional ethics, our loyalty and our approachability.
Our culture extends beyond good business practice. We are also recognized for the efforts we make to alleviate poverty, support education and protect the environment around the world. KPMG member firms work diligently with other companies, governments and non-government organizations to address these problems and make a positive difference in peoples’ health, welfare and prosperity.
Our employees benefit from this forward-thinking approach. A critical element of KPMG’s global vision is to be recognized as ‘employers of choice’ — to recruit, retain and develop the very best people.
This allows our people to flourish both as professionals and as individuals — to enjoy a challenging career and get the most from their personal lives. They do so knowing that they are part of a responsible and positive culture that extends beyond them into the greater business, social and natural environment.
