Our people is our biggest asset

As a professional services firm we acknowledge that our success relies on our people. The cornerstone of our Firm’s success is our people’s individualities, skills and expertise. This is what differentiates us from the competition.

KPMG strives to create an environment where our people can thrive and fulfill their full potential regardless of their background. Being true to our inclusion and diversity agenda, we are recruiting people from diverse backgrounds.

Our performance and ambitions

Our recruitment strategies aim to attract the best talent in the market. This is achieved through long and ongoing relationships with top Universities in Cyprus and abroad, as well as through building awareness of the profession.

KPMG aims to inspire confidence in the market and make a positive impact on the society. We have made our peoples’ ongoing development a priority and created a culture that encourages and enables learning and feedback. This is the reason why in October 2019 we launched a new Performance Development process and a new Performance Development tool called “OpenPD”.

In our new Performance Development approach, both positive and developmental feedback can be sought and received through various mechanisms from both senior colleagues as well as peers.
