A dedicated team of diversity practitioners and a sub-group of the UK Board work with the business to continually develop and enhance our approach to diversity and inclusion.
To create an inclusive workplace where difference is valued and talented individuals are treated with respect, have choices in their working patterns and in their development.
We believe diversity enables us to:
- recruit and retain the most talented people
- provide the best service to our clients
- work more closely with our communities
- make a positive difference to our business
In order to achieve this:
We support a range of employee networks for employees including the Black Business Network, the China Club and the Disability Network.
We show leadership. KPMG leads the way on flexible working, as the only one of the professional services firms to be listed in Working Families' list of the top twenty UK employers for working families in 2009.
We encourage you to succeed, whoever you are. Whatever your gender, ethnicity, age, disability or sexual orientation, you can succeed at KPMG. We support you through offering access to networks, mentoring opportunities, development programmes and inspirational role models.
We share best practice. We know we don't have all the answers, and are keen to learn from others as well as to share what works in KPMG. To this end we sit on the Board of Race for Opportunity, are a Gold member of the Employers Forum on Disability, and a Stonewall Champion (Stonewall, the leading lesbian, gay and bisexual charity in the UK).
We offer a wide range of flexible working options. 97% of flexible working applications are accepted in KPMG.
We recruit the best irrespective of difference. 34% of our graduate intake is from minority ethnic backgrounds.
We create an inclusive environment. KPMG has been included in the Times Top 50/Where Women Want to Work index for the past four years.
