KPMG ranked as one of the top employers in the Social Mobility Employer Index 2018.
KPMG has today been ranked as one of the Top 50 employers in the Social Mobility Employer Index 2018.
The top 50 UK employers who have taken the most action to improve social mobility in the workplace are announced today in what is believed to be the world’s only Social Mobility Employer Index.
The Index is the creation of the Social Mobility Foundation and is published in partnership with sponsors the City of London Corporation. It ranks the UK’s employers on the actions they are taking to ensure they are open to accessing and progressing talent from all backgrounds.
In response to the announcement, Deputy Chair Melanie Richards commented: “Being recognised as the leading employer in the Social Mobility Employer Index is an immense source of pride to us and will spur us on to do even more together to drive forward this agenda at every level in our business. For us, social mobility is an integral part of the future of our business and the future of UK plc which is why we will be collaborating with the wider business community to build on this success. Over the coming months we will be redoubling our efforts to take this work forward to create a fairer firm, pushing for a fairer industry and increasing opportunity for all within it.”
