People and Change

The world is becoming ever more complex, presenting new challenges for businesses when it comes to managing their workforces. At KPMG, our People & Change teams focus on advising clients in two areas:

  1.  Transforming HR functions so that they can add value at the right cost. HR has the capability to transform an organisation’s financial performance and market value through its people
  2. Delivering transformational change on an enterprise basis, or stand-alone function basis. We do this by helping clients manage the people issues – staffing, capability, engagement, transition – as they implement significant change. 


We train our people in six capability areas:

  • HR transformation
  • Organisation design
  • Behavioural change management
  • Workforce intelligenceTalent management
  • People issues in M&A and sourcing  


 We can advise clients on transforming their organisations by:

  • Creating a vision and case for change in line with business strategy
  • Helping teams embrace change, whether it be caused by regulatory, operational or technological requirements
  • Providing change programme and project management
  • Embedding cultural change by identifying and engaging stakeholders and crafting communications plans
  • Developing talent management strategies, including attracting and retaining top talent
  • Creating an agile, productive workforce with the right staff, in the right place at the right time
  • Designing and executing new organisational structures to create fit for purpose organisations
  • Establishing new delivery models, such as global business and shared services, outsourcing and off-shoring
  • Improving the HR team’s effectiveness via the use of technology and implementing new HR processes.
