KPMG’s People Powered Performance can provide the evidence to help solve your workforce issues and unleash the full potential of your people to deliver your business strategy, achieve a competitive edge and transform your business performance.

Using market-leading data and analytics, we work with you to implement solutions across five key areas: Cost, Capacity, Capability, Connectivity and Compliance. We call this our 5C model.

CEOs and the C-suite consistently cite people and talent issues as a top three business concern for their board and senior management.

Our combined services are organised around our 5C model and focus on four areas below:

Organisation & Workforce

Strategic Workforce Planning

KPMG’s Strategic Workforce Planning offering helps you to plan your workforce requirements over the longer term and future-proof your workforce. Based on your business plans, our in-house developed analytical tools help you to build a business demand profile that quantifies the number and type of staff required in the future. Comparing this evidence with your existing workforce, our consultants help identify gaps and surpluses and help you to address them.

Workforce Analytics

KPMG’s Workforce Analytics approach leverages big data, using both internal workforce and business data, and external social, location and demographic data, to improve business performance and help reduce business risk through your workforce. We work with you to tackle critical business issues, using our advanced analytics approach to uncover the workforce drivers of increased business value, or poor risk outcomes. Our predictive models can be used to design interventions, and to build a framework to monitor and help improve future performance.

Workforce Optimisation

KPMG’s Workforce Optimisation services can help you to assess the effectiveness of your current workforce planning and deployment processes. We use in-house developed analytical tools to review how you plan and deploy resources to the core activities in your businesses and assess options for changing the workforce number, type and mix to improve the cost of delivery. Our consultants work with you to determine a preferred option for change with supporting operations and financial evidence to support.

Diversity & Inclusion

KPMG’s Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) services can help organisations solve their Diversity & Inclusion issues. Using our BIO (Benchmarking, Insights and Opportunities) Diversity tool, coupled with market leading thinking and advice, our solutions are tailored to address your unique needs. We help organisations adjust their focus from Compliance & Corporate Responsibility, Marketing and HR process to Inclusion and Business Strategy.

Global Mobility

KPMG’s BIO Mobility solution helps multi-national organisations programs gain a complete understanding of their global mobility programme using data. Coupled with our expertise in talent management and global mobility advisory, we can help organisations to understand the impact of adjusting each element of the mobility compensation package, and to understand the return on investment of their global mobility programme through tracking key metrics such as post-assignment tenure, secondee diversity and policy exemptions.

Talent & Learning

Talent Development - We can help organisations attract, retain and develop the right people to fulfil their current and future business needs. This is achieved by focusing on developing the right skills and capabilities for all staff, as well as for those destined for senior leadership roles.

KPMG can help organisations drive their people strategy by developing large scale learning programmes. Programmes that are rooted in the organisation’s culture, academically rigorous, and technologically advanced. Programmes that are flexible enough to support the many different ways people learn. Whether that means classroom learning or large scale digital or anything in between, we can create a blended solution that's the right fit for your organisation and provides the greatest impact. These learning programmes can increase engagement, upskill employees and help unlock the latent productivity of an organisation’s people. 

Develop a Learning Strategy

We don’t come to the table with a prescribed view of what a learning solution should be. We look at what an organisation already has and we help that organisation look at themselves through a new lens.  We’ll use data analytics to gather evidence, we’ll help articulate a vision and we’ll make sure that success is defined up front, so it can be measured later.  

Build the Right Learning for each Organisation

We will create learning programs that fulfil an organisation's needs and are rooted in their culture. To do this we’ll bring together the best of the KPMG Learning Academy, (KPMG’s digital learning group that brings together subject matter expertise with our learning design and technology capabilities), world class academics such as Harvard and a range of other partners to deliver the most exciting digital, blended, and classroom training programmes.

Manage and run the learning programmes

We can make sure that the whole learning experience is well managed and well run. From the first booking to the degree ceremony, we provide the support services and infrastructure to make sure the experience is seamless and pleasant for the learner and cost effective for the organisation.  This includes the rolling out the programme, managing the booking, call centres and logistics and dealing with the supply chain effectively.

Help embed a learning culture in an organisation

We help embed learning in the culture of the organisation by executing change and communication plans that raise the awareness of the new learning program and measure its success.  We develop learning change agents and coach leadership on learning centric behaviours.  We provide structured change planning & communication facilities to makes sure awareness is raised and behavioural change sticks.

Continuously Improve Learning

We will measure the uptake and impact of learning based upon the organisations success measures.  We’ll build continuous improvement into our learning programs so that learning content and the learning blend can be continuously updated based upon effectiveness and need.

Performance & Reward

Employee Value Proposition & Our Deal

Defining a relevant, rewarding experience for current and future employees is crucial for companies looking to succeed in the war for talent. At KPMG, our approach to developing a compelling employee value proposition centres on creating high levels of people engagement. Our approach uses our workforce analytics toolset to understand the engagement drivers for differing employee segments, our EVP methodology enables organisations to understand and validate business and employee drivers and align the entire people system (such as reward, performance and talent management) to create inspiring and engaging employee experiences to set them apart from the competition. 

Gender Pay

KPMG BIO Gender Pay Gap (GPG) Reporting Tool is an innovative product which allows organisations to analyse their data to calculate their GPG, the possible causes for their GPG and take proactive steps to decrease their GPG. Designed to be easy to use, it lets clients understand and model options for managing cost and risk, whilst future proofing for future compliance with compulsory legislative reporting.

Holiday Pay


Companies are looking at ways to provide cost-effective Independent Financial Advice and manage future workforce issues, and trustees have governance on their minds.
