What defines KPMG as a firm has always been its people and their story. We celebrate colleagues who inspire confidence and empower change.
While KPMG has always been a purpose-led organization - driven by a 100+ year history of doing great things and making a positive impact on the world -up until recently we had not focused on explicitly communicating or celebrating this strong sense of purpose with our people.
That all changed a few years ago when we launched our firmwide Higher Purpose initiative, a comprehensive effort to strengthen our people’s pride, engagement, and emotional connection to the firm by encouraging them to recognize and celebrate the meaning and positive impact of the work they do.
Our signature theme, Inspire Confidence. Empower Change, celebrates our higher purpose as it relates to our people, clients, and communities. What makes this effort unique from anything our firm has done previously is that it actively seeks out and promotes the specific ways that individual KPMGers and teams make a difference through their professional work.
We believe this emphasis on the specific work our people do enables us to differentiate KPMG’s impact from the impact of any other organization.
