“At the core of KPMG’s culture are a set of values that bring out the best in our people. These values are demonstrated in how we respect each person and the unique contributions they bring. It’s how our leaders are stepping up and setting an example. 

And it’s how we collaborate and interact with our colleagues, clients and the broader community. When we understand and respect one another, we can achieve great things together.”  Gary Wingrove - CEO, KPMG Australia

 

KPMG and culture

We foster a positive and encouraging culture, and as a result we attract passionate individuals who share a common purpose of ‘Inspiring Confidence and Empowering Change’.

We’re committed to providing an environment which enables everyone to succeed.  Our culture influences how we interact with our colleagues, clients and the broader community.

We believe that diversity of thought, backgrounds and experiences strengthens relationships and delivers meaningful benefits to our people and clients.  It also makes KPMG a vibrant and interesting place to work.

 

KPMG and flexibility

Getting the right balance between personal and professional life is good for health, morale and performance.  We encourage flexible working and offer a range of programs to support the careers of our people.

Imagine a career where you’re trusted to do what you’re good at, in a way that fits in with the life you want to live. Watch these amazing stories of our extraordinary people at KPMG showing us just how easy balance can be. 

 

 KPMG recognise the importance of family and have partnered with Parents At Work to support all our people through their parenting and caring journey.

“KPMG’s parental leave policy allowed me to spend four months at home as her primary care giver with no financial pressures, forming memories for the rest of my life.”  Anthony Robertson - Senior Consultant.

 

KPMG and inclusion

KPMG has an ingrained culture of inclusion and diversity, focusing on shared values, experiences and aspirations.

We are committed to providing an environment which enables everyone to succeed – a safe space for our people to bring their whole selves to work – where inclusion is at the heart of our values.

Importantly for our clients, we know that bringing together unique ideas, perspectives and experiences ensures we have the breadth of knowledge to create truly innovate solutions.

 

KPMG and Gender Equality

Setting gender targets is a tangible, measurable demonstration of our commitment to fostering diversity and gender equality across our firm. We set our first female partnership targets in 2013, and in August 2016, announced a higher target of 30 percent women in partnership by December 2020.

KPMG’s firm wide commitment is demonstrated by our CEO Gary Wingrove’s participation in the Male Champions of Change founding group.

KPMG has received the citation for WGEA’s Employer of Choice for Gender Equality for eleven years in a row.

"At KPMG we continue to work to create an environment where it is safe to take parental leave without concerns of impact on careers; including recognising the true personal development gained during parental leave including capabilities like resilience, patience and flexibility" Deborah Yates - National Managing Partner - People.

KPMG and the community

Beyond our clients we contribute in voluntary and honorary capacities to assist the wellbeing of the communities in which we live and operate. We work with community partners to help solve challenges, with a core focus on reconciliation with Indigenous Australia through our Reconciliation Action Plan.

Internally we aim to create a feeling of community through our various staff networks, such as Pride@KPMG (the firm’s network for its LGBT+ Partners and employees, and their allies).

 

“Pride@KPMG is about providing an inclusive space for all our extraordinary people to bring their authentic selves to work, and to be advocates for positive change regarding sexual orientation and gender identity in the workplace and the broader community.” Andrew North, Co-Chair Pride@KPMG
