KPMG China has been named among the “Best Companies to Work For in Asia 2018 - China” by influential human resources publication HR Asia Media. This marks the second consecutive year the firm has received the honour, which speaks to its achievements in talent strategy and people experience.
Winners are selected by an independent panel of judges that includes senior industry professionals, renowned academics, journalists and government representatives from across the region. The selection team evaluates finalists based on two separate feedback surveys that gauge employee engagement.
Linda Lin, Head of People, Performance and Culture, KPMG China, says: “It is an honour for KPMG to be recognised for this award again. This is an affirmation of our unwavering commitment to our principle of ‘inspiring confidence and achieving innovation’ while creating an exceptional working environment and development platform for our employees. This allows our people to grow their careers while making a positive and proactive impact to society.”
KPMG values the work experience of its employees. The firm continues to adopt new technologies and tools to help candidates and employees access the support and services they need more easily and efficiently. At the same time, it also strives to help employees achieve a work-life balance. As part of these efforts, the firm organises events, seminars and courses to help employees develop both personally and professionally.
The firm has also created comprehensive training programs for employees in all service lines and ranks to learn both soft and hard skills that can enable their growth. Global mobility programs are offered to enable our employees to work across borders, giving them the opportunity to broaden their horizons and explore their talents on a larger stage. An internal job mobilisation programme also has been created to allow employees across different service lines to collaborate and exchange ideas. This helps our employees to better understand their strengths and how they can leverage them to accelerate their careers.
Charlie Li, Head of Human Resources, KPMG China, says: “This award confirms KPMG China's efforts and achievements in talent strategy, talent development and people experience. As a firm that is constantly advancing and providing a variety of professional services for all industries, KPMG always listens closely to our employees' opinions and suggestions while striving to establish interactive, efficient and transparent methods of communication. In addition, the firm aims to create an outstanding working environment and improve employee satisfaction. In the future, we will strive to continue to recruit the best talent, further improve our win-win relationship with employees, and encourage our people to work together with the firm to achieve great things.”

KPMG is a global network of professional services firms providing Audit, Tax and Advisory services. We operate in 154 countries and territories and have 200,000 people working in member firms around the world. The independent member firms of the KPMG network are affiliated with KPMG International Cooperative (“KPMG International”), a Swiss entity. Each KPMG firm is a legally distinct and separate entity and describes itself as such.
In 1992, KPMG became the first international accounting network to be granted a joint venture licence in mainland China. KPMG China was also the first among the Big Four in mainland China to convert from a joint venture to a special general partnership, as of 1 August 2012. Additionally, the Hong Kong office can trace its origins to 1945. This early commitment to the China market, together with an unwavering focus on quality, has been the foundation for accumulated industry experience, and is reflected in the Chinese member firm’s appointment by some of China’s most prestigious companies.
