We know that every individual in our organisation contributes to our ability to provide exceptional service to our clients and communities.
Inclusion and Diversity is not a tactic. It’s a belief, a celebration of our differences..
We know that every individual in our organisation contributes to our ability to provide exceptional service to our clients and communities. KPMG New Zealand has a growing reputation amongst KPMG member firms globally for strong staff engagement anchored in a clearly articulated vision for the firm – “fuelling New Zealand’s prosperity.”
In order to deliver on this vision, the firm must attract, develop and retain the very best people and create a workplace environment in which all will flourish. We know that our ability to successfully maintain this environment also requires that our people be as diverse as the clients we serve, and the communities in which we live and work.
National inclusion and diversity priorities
Our National Inclusion and Diversity Council is responsible for providing focus around I&D initiatives in New Zealand. Formed in April 2016, the I&D Council has a set of strategic objectives which explain how we are addressing our priority of reflecting New Zealand, that we will be a diverse, talented and representative firm that thinks and acts for New Zealand.
