KPMG strikes Investors in People gold
Bermuda financial services firm KPMG has won a top award in an international scheme to recognise good management.
KPMG got gold accreditation by the standard-setting authority Investors in People after notching up 179 evidence points — 14 points above the threshold for a gold award.
The award makes the company only the fourth on the Island to get a gold under the scheme.
KPMG Bermuda chairman Neil Patterson said: “This is an important milestone in our ambition to be the clear choice for our clients, our people and our community.
“I want to thank everyone at KPMG who worked so hard to make this a reality.”
KPMG director of human resources Tana Tucker added: “Attaining the gold standard is a huge achievement for every member of staff at KPMG and is an endorsement of the type of employer and member of the local community we are proud to be.”
Investors in People assessor Angela Mulvie said: “The excellent people management and development practices in place within KPMG in Bermuda, the high level of commitment from the senior team towards these and their role in applying such practices consistently to sustain and grow the business is commendable.”
Investors in People is a internationally-recognised body that defines good practice in people management to improve performance and is the only international standard that uses a “people-oriented approach” to business improvement.
