KPMG International and its member firms aim is to be an example of how to conduct business while respecting human rights. This fundamental belief takes shape not only in our activities around the world, but also in our labor principles, our diversity and inclusion programs and our employee programs.
- Human rights: KPMG International and its member firms fully support the UN Framework and Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. For the first time, KPMG International has issued a statement outlining its approach to human rights.
- Labor principles: KPMG International and KPMG member firms fully respect our employees’ rights and freedom of association while recognizing the right to collective bargaining where appropriate. We reject any forced, compulsory or child labor. We promote fair labor practices among our partners, employees, and suppliers, ensuring healthy working conditions and a work/life balance for all KPMG people. And we encourage and respect individuality as one of our values embedded within our Global Code of Conduct.
- Diversity and Inclusion: For KPMG, creating an inclusive culture where all our people achieve their potential is critical if we are to deliver the solutions our clients need. We believe that diverse teams better reflect the diverse nature of our clients’ businesses. This enables us to express different viewpoints and create well-rounded perspectives that drive innovative thinking.
- Development and talent: As part of our commitment to equipping our people with the tools they need to develop both their potential and their community citizenship, we ensure that our employees around the world have access to the high quality, relevant training they need. In addition, our Virtual Business School for Partners provides senior global client partners with leadership mentoring and a tailored curriculum that will enable them to become successful leaders.
