Our structure is designed to support consistency of service quality and adherence to agreed values wherever in the world our member firms operate.
Client services are provided by KPMG member firms or by other independent firms licensed by member firms to use the KPMG name. Each KPMG firm is separate and legally distinct. KPMG International does not provide services to clients.
Member firms are located in 155 countries. Collectively, they employ more than 174,000 people.
Our member firms commit themselves to a common set of KPMG values. Firms must abide quality standards governing how they operate and how they provide services to clients. Other firms, licensed by member firms to use the KPMG name, must also abide by these standards.
Each KPMG member firm takes responsibility for its management and the quality of its work. Partners and professionals within those firms undertake to act with integrity at all times.
Unless otherwise indicated, references in this website to a 'member firm' or 'member firms' includes references to member firms of KPMG International, other firms licensed by them to use the KPMG name and, in each case, firms controlled by them.
At the core of KPMG's vibrant culture are a set of values that bring out the best in our people.
KPMG operate in demanding conditions, with unprecedented scrutiny of our profession, and constant developments in regulation, law and market demands. Our reputation is created by the way the people within our firms respond to these conditions, and how they act with clients, with colleagues, and with their communities.
Our culture: The KPMG culture is rooted in our values. Our integrity and policy of open and honest communication builds trust and collaboration, while our flexibility and diversity creates a culture in which people share knowledge freely, bringing out the very best in each other. Asked why they choose to work with KPMG member firms, many clients talk about our high level of professional ethics, our loyalty and our approachability.
- Our culture extends beyond good business practice. We are also recognized for the efforts we make to alleviate poverty, support education and protect the environment around the world. KPMG member firms work diligently with other companies, governments and non-government organizations to address these problems and make a positive difference in peoples’ health, welfare and prosperity.
- Our employees benefit from this forward-thinking approach. A critical element of KPMG’s vision is to be recognized as ‘employers of choice’ — to recruit, retain and develop the very best people.
- This allows our people to flourish both as professionals and as individuals — to enjoy a challenging career and get the most from their personal lives. They do so knowing that they are part of a responsible and positive culture that extends beyond them into the greater business, social and natural environment.
