KPMG is leading way on social mobility
30 March 2016
KPMG has been named by BIS as a Social Mobility Business Compact champion, recognising the firm’s work to improve social mobility in the business community. It is one of just 11 organisations in the UK to have been awarded this new status.
KPMG was specifically recognised as one of the first businesses to pay the voluntary Living Wage in 2005 and for its active role to encourage other business leaders to follow suit. The firm was also heavily involved in the development of Access Accountancy, a scheme that encourages non-traditional applicants into the profession and remains a key supporter of the City Academy, Hackney.
KPMG’s vice chairman, Melaine Richards, said: “Improving social mobility is fundamentally good for business and is one of the key tenets of KPMG’s commercial strategy.”
* The other champions include: Deloitte, EY and Grant Thornton.
