This further acknowledges that we have the proven methodologies, the expertise and the bench strength globally to help these companies prevail in the ongoing war for talent.” 

"We are committed to investing in areas which we believe are central to the major strategic challenges our clients face. Our investment in global Centers of Excellence is one way that we help to ensure we continuously develop robust and sustainable solutions which leverage new technologies for our member firm clients,"said Aidan Brennan, Global Head of Management Consulting with KPMG. 

Report author Liz DeVito also singled out KPMG’s approach to leadership development consulting engagements, noting that, "…this approach supports KPMG’s view that the main task of leadership is to create the systemic environment and culture that helps all employees to perform to their highest potential."
