New Zealand is reaching the point in our Covid-19 response where we are learning to live with the virus and find a balance of social and economic activity which still maintains the safety of our communities.

KPMG New Zealand has carefully considered how we will operate our business in a way that manages the safety of our people, clients and the public alongside the greater freedoms New Zealand is embracing.

KPMG New Zealand’s Covid-19 Protection Guidelines have been developed in accordance with the government’s New Zealand Covid-19 Protection Framework and with engagement from our people. It also takes into consideration the approaches taken by many of our clients and key stakeholders. 

Access to KPMG premises

From 5 April 2022 proof of vaccination will no longer be required to access KPMG premises and attend KPMG-run events. This is in line with recent Government advice. Face coverings continue to be required when entering and leaving our premises.

All KPMG-run events will be held in accordance with Government guidelines under the traffic light settings, including capacity limits, physical distancing, etc.

Access to client (and other business partner) premises

Where clients and others choose to require proof of Covid-19 vaccination to enter their premises, we will work with our employees, clients and others to protect the safety and privacy of our people, meet client requirements and support their business needs, and comply with the New Zealand Covid-19 Protection Framework.

Client (or other business partner) requires proof of vaccination:

KPMG will provide assurance that all employees attending client premises have valid proof of vaccination. Where specific premises require demonstration of proof of vaccinations, employees will be required to provide such proof, such as via My Vaccine Pass.

Client (or other business partner) does not require proof of vaccination:

KPMG will consult its employees about attending premises where proof of vaccination is not required, with concerns relating to any increased safety risk addressed on a case-by-case basis. Rates of vaccination, other controls and individuals’ views will be taken into account. Employees who are not vaccinated may have the opportunity to attend these premises if relevant and appropriate.

The KPMG requirements outlined on this page sit alongside the other elements of the government’s New Zealand Covid-19 Protection Framework in the different traffic light levels, including face coverings, physical distancing, limits on in-person gatherings, contract tracing etc.

Given the unpredictable nature of Covid-19, we may need to review these guidelines from time to time, in accordance with New Zealand Covid-19 Protection Framework, Ministry of Health and other government guidance
