KPMG Global Annual Review 2019

People. Perspectives. Possibilities.

With a focus on our clients' perspectives, a commitment to quality and a drive for innovation, KPMG professionals delivered.

This year’s Review focuses on how we are driving quality and accountability in our work to help ensure we continue to meet the needs of our clients and wider stakeholders. It’s the story of our organization, told through the words of our people. It contains stories about how we are leveraging our people’s expertise, our innovative solutions and applying our values, to help businesses adapt and be fit for the future.

A commitment to quality is at the heart of our collective strategy and this theme runs throughout our Global Review. We highlight the steps we have taken in 2019 to drive audit quality and how we have invested in the talent, capabilities, tools and digital solutions needed to meet the needs of our clients across all our functions and service lines.

This is illustrated by our recent announcement on our expected investment of US$5 billion over the coming five years on technology, people and innovation to enhance our leadership position in the digital transformation of professional services. We also demonstrate how we are helping to shape the conversation around issues like taxation where our Global Responsible Tax Project continues to flourish with more than 1,300 voices – including academics, NGOs, businesses, activists, government, media and more – joining the conversation. 

In an era of transformational change we also demonstrate how our innovative thinking has helped clients address strategic issues – from using digital innovation to drive revolutionary logistics or protect critical data and assets to using drones to drive audit accuracy.

You will also see how over the past 12 months, external recognition of KPMG’s position as a top employer has seen our global workforce grow to more than 219,000 people – the highest-ever number employed across our organization. And, finally, the Global Review illustrates KPMG’s commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals, with a focus on lifelong learning – whether that’s through KPMG’s annual Global Cyber Day, which helps children learn about online safety, or how through our two-decade strong relationship with Enactus we are supporting young entrepreneurs.
