The KPMG network was formed in 1987 when Peat Marwick International and Klynveld Main Goerdeler merged along with their respective member firms. KPMG is a global network of professional firms providing audit, tax and advisory services. In 1992, KPMG became the first international accounting network to be granted a joint venture licence in mainland China. Until now, KPMG China operates in 19 cities across China, with around 12,000 partners and staff.
“INSPIRE CONFIDENCE AND EMPOWER CHANGE”
Whatever your role in KPMG, we make a positive impact on society through the work we do. By staying focused on what really matters and acting as stewards for the next generation, we inspire confidence and empower change. We operate with this purpose in mind in order to become ‘THE CLEAR CHOICE’, for the people, our clients and the public – this is our vision.
‘Our people are extraordinary’, we have a people strategy in place to make this happen, involving targets to further enhance strategic recruitment, people development and ongoing engagement.
CLEAR CHOICE FOR PEOPLE: “OUR PEOPLE ARE EXTRAORDINARY”
For strategic recruitment and people development, we have:
- Tailored development plans by grade/level
- HR software to track the development programme
- Balance scorecard performance evaluation system
- Tailor made training for different services
- Global and national mobility programmes
- Well-structured and transparent career matrix
- Enabled staff to focus on bringing value to clients by offshoring nonclient facing work to a shared services centre
At KPMG, we understand that the skills, knowledge and capabilities of our people are central to our success. That’s why we’re fully committed to developing a continuous learning culture. Each of our staff received 92.1 hours of training in 2017. We also have a well-structured programme tailored for different service lines to equip them with both the soft and
technical skill sets necessary for their different milestones. We provide global and national mobility programmes to allow our staff to experience different international working cultures and engagements.
Internal transfers between functions also offer our people the chance to work in different business lines in order to broaden their horizons and switch their expertise.
COMMUNICATIONS, ENGAGEMENT AND RECOGNITION
- Annual Global People Survey to review and measure people’s experience at our firm and take action to improve
- Project Connect – an interactive, efficient and transparent way of communication, with a comprehensive Internal Communications Policy to nail down channels which staff can use to receive information
- People Network (people partners, people business advisors and people champions)
- More than 50+ interest groups – organised nearly 1,000 activities
- Recognition programmes – Encore, Bravo, Standing Ovation, Best Employee of the Year, etc.
- Improved office environments such as Guangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong
We embrace an open communication culture and have a series of internal communication channels. Apart from the traditional options like sending emails and connecting via phone calls, we have our ‘Hub’ – an internal interactive platform, an ‘Ask Chairmen’ forum and ‘Ask Chairmen Live’ where colleagues have the chance to direct any questions to the Chairmen face to face. Other ways we reach out to our people include our weekly wrap up – a weekly firm-wide newsletter, the China portal, Pulse TV, People Network and Global People Survey. All of these tools are there to ensure that our people are able to communicate with seniors frequently in terms of their ideas and general feedback. All the input is regularly reviewed by the management to ensure that constructive ideas are implemented and that people have their say.
Every year, we conduct our Global People Survey, which measures our people’s perception regarding how well our leaders engage, enable and energise people to demonstrate the desirable behaviours and live up to our purpose and vision. It provides the leadership with essential information on the drivers of our business performance and employee engagement levels. High performers are recognised and rewarded for their achievements that are directly linked to our values and purpose with awards like the ‘Bravo award’, ‘Standing Ovation’ and ‘Employee of the Year’.
Apart from work, we believe that finding time to relax is also fundamental to a happy and healthy life. We organise a wide range of activities through our myLife programme to help our people to find a balance between their professional and personal lives. We have 50+ interest groups, apart from sports and cultural groups we also have a parents group for working parents. The company also organise bigger events like ‘Family Fun Days’, where we have a 1-day theme park tour or different family-friendly activities for staff and their families. We also have a ‘Flexible Wellness’ programme for staff whereby they have a fixed lump sum of money which they can use to pay for any health or wellness activities, like gym membership, etc.
CLEAR CHOICE OF THE PUBLIC: THE PUBLIC TRUSTS US
To become the clear choice of the public, we invest in the communities where we live and work. We have a firm-wide CSR strategy and team. Our staff can make meaningful contributions to the community via different activities, e.g. we have built four KPMG Hope Schools for students affected after the earthquakes in Sichuan.
We also recognise the importance of difference, respect and equality as part of our ongoing commitment to inclusion and diversity, we actively participate in programmes which foster inclusion and diversity like International Women’s Day and Global Dignity Day, etc.
“We go to great lengths to hire the best talent in the world – this in turn helps us to continually attract the best people to our firm. We provide a well-structured professional platform for extraordinary, driven, high performing individuals who share our passion for excellence and success. We are dedicated to be the Clear Choice.”
