Coronavirus is a global health crisis with far reaching implications. The health and safety of our people and our clients is our top priority. The overwhelming priority is now to contain the virus and minimise its spread, reducing the impact it will have on individuals, families and communities around the world. Our thoughts are with all those that have been affected.

At KPMG, we have launched a pandemic response programme to protect our people and manage the resilience of the services and support we provide to our clients.

We are working closely with the UK Government, Public Health England, KPMG International and our global member firms to coordinate our response and manage our resources.

Our Business Continuity Management system is robust, regularly tested and a number of measures have already been taken as part of our response. We are now regularly stress-testing our processes, systems and policies alongside extensive scenario planning to assess the impact of COVID-19 on our business.

If you would like to receive our resources in real time via email, you can create an account on our preference centre and select “COVID-19 Insights”.

In order to support your business we will be hosting regular webinars where a range of both KPMG experts and Industry experts will be on hand to discuss critical business issues related to COVID-19.

Practical steps for resilience

  • We have suspended all international and domestic travel, cancelled all events and instructed our people to move all meetings to virtual ones. 
  • In line with government guidance, our people are now working at home. 
  • We have long-established and well tested remote working capabilities with all colleagues equipped with a laptop and software-based telephones.
  • All of our employees have access to wellbeing and health support, including the ability to speak to a GP 24 hours a day.
  • Our VPN infrastructure has been tested to support all of our colleagues working from home and we have deployed additional collaboration tools.
  • We are working with the UK Government, Public Health England, KPMG International and our network of member firms to coordinate our response and resources.
  • Our supply chain and key suppliers have been reviewed and we have made arrangements to ensure the provision of services critical to our business.

We are stress-testing the impact of major disruptions to our supply chain and significant staff absences, with robust plans in place to protect critical delivery of key client services and operational capabilities.

Working with our clients

We are committed to supporting our clients through this period of extended uncertainty. Our teams are already working to provide guidance and support to UK businesses, and we developed a number of practical guides on how you can manage the impact of COVID-19 and build long-term resilience in your organisation.
