Culture

At KPMG, we put our culture and values front and center. There is nothing more important than investing in our culture because it’s an investment in our people, in our future, in who we are, and what we stand for.

What is culture? Culture is how we do things around here. It is the combination of a predominant mindset, actions (both big and small) that we all commit to every day, and the underlying processes, programs and systems supporting how work gets done. And at KPMG, we understand and believe that strengthening our culture is everyone's responsibility.

The KPMG Story encompasses what we believe in, where we're going, and how we’ll get there. It includes our Purpose, Values, Vision, Strategy, and our Promise. Our story helps us make informed decisions as we respond to challenges and pursue new opportunities.

The KPMG Story binds us together, and helps us grow – individually and collectively – and it sets us apart from the competition. KPMG has a great story to tell, and we’re extremely proud of it. We encourage you to learn more about how you can become part of our story.

What will Your Story be at KPMG?

Our Culture Vision

Heads Up Thinking is our Culture vision and informs the way we work and how we live our Purpose and Values. It is our chance to put Culture and Values front and center, make our Culture extraordinary, and unleash the full power and passion of our people.

Why does culture matter? Culture influences how we treat one another each day, the behaviors we reward, who we promote and where we invest. It can serve as a powerful differentiator from our competitors and create an environment that we all are proud of. It also drives growth and long-term financial sustainability. We know that good culture = good business.

Our Values

Our Values define who we are, what we believe and what we stand for. They establish a common identity that unites us. At KPMG, we are truly better Together.

Our Values guide our thousands of extraordinary people to do what is right, learn and improve every day, think and act boldly, respect and draw strength from our differences, and do what matters for our clients, communities and the capital markets we serve.

Our Values make us stronger and help us grow the trust of all our stakeholders every day.

KPMG Values

  • Integrity. We do what is right.
  • Excellence. We never stop learning and improving.
  • Courage. We think and act boldly.
  • Together. We respect each other and draw strength from our differences.
  • For Better. We do what matters.

"Our values reflect what we believe and expect from one another. Some may argue they are mere words on a page. But words matter, especially these. In particular, it is what we do with these words —and the energy and the passion in how we are living these values every day — that matters most."

- Claudia Saran, Chief Culture Officer

“What I like most about KPMG is the culture. It’s the mantra of Lead by Example. I’ve worked at three other firms before, and I always felt like you have a job and you do your job. And the one thing that I found really different at KPMG, and why I’ve stayed here for over nine years, is the people that I’ve worked with and for. They have truly been mentors and they have helped me to succeed.”
– Jack Umansky, Director - Advisory

Our Vision

To be the Clear Choice

At KPMG, our goal is not to be the biggest professional services firm. Our goal is to be the best professional services firm. And we define this in a very tangible way through our vision of being the Clear Choice.

For KPMG, being the Clear Choice means that:

  • Our people are extraordinary;
  • Our Clients see a difference in us; and
  • The public trusts us.

We believe that living our principles — and living the KPMG Story — will set us apart.

We hope KPMG will be your Clear Choice.
