Our people

How we're supporting our people to thrive and reach their full potential.

Our people are the reason our firm has stood the test of time for over 150 years. It's our responsibility to create a culture of lifelong learning for our people. And to make sure, irrespective of who they are and where they're from, there's no limits to where their talent can take them. I'm proud of what we have done to foster an inclusive and diverse environment, where different perspectives are valued and innovative thinking can flourish.

We’re an ambitious, values-led firm, full of fantastic people. We want to make a lasting impact on the world - transforming businesses, developing trust and confidence in markets, and building stronger, fairer communities.

Our people are central to this. We’re committed to creating an inclusive environment where people from every walk of life can reach their full potential and feel empowered to come as they are. We know that diversity of experience, background and perspective makes us stronger, so we’ve set bold ambitions and long-term targets to 2030 as part of our inclusion, diversity and equity plan.

How we work and support each other makes us unique. We recognise the importance of health and wellbeing and support our people to work in new and more flexible ways - helping them to thrive at work and at home. We’re embracing new ways of working and creating a tech-driven business that enables our people to be outstanding in delivery, no matter where they work.

We’re unlocking the potential of our people with a culture of continuous learning and development. We know that everyone learns in different ways, so we’re always adapting our approach to make learning more accessible. And we’re changing the way people access learning too, with an increase in digital and virtual courses that reflect our new ways of working.

We recognise people for the impact they make, the leadership they show and the success they create with others. It’s all part of the firm we’re creating together – Our KPMG.
