As the world continues to navigate new challenges and adapt to new realities, KPMG has remained committed to using employees’ feedback to find new ways to better their experience.
Since the start of the pandemic, the firm has employed a continuous listening approach, using regular experience surveys and other feedback channels to stay connected with people and better understand the challenges they’re facing and support they need. Recent survey feedback showed that employees, like so many other workforces across the globe, continue to face challenges around well-being and resilience, with many struggling to maintain energy levels and manage stress. In response, KPMG announced several changes to firm-wide work norms and expectations to help people with energy and time management, including:
On the new initiatives, Darren H. Burton, Vice Chair of Human Resources, KPMG US, said “We are committed to listening to feedback and finding new ways to help strengthen the well-being and resiliency of our workforce, so our people can more effectively disconnect, recharge, and manage stress. We’re asking everyone to adopt these small but impactful changes and make them the rule versus the exception wherever possible. By working together, in line with our values, we can support one another and enhance our collective and individual work experience.”
KPMG hopes that these energy and time management changes, in conjunction with other well-being and benefits enhancements that were previously introduced, will continue to improve the overall employee experience.
