Investing in people

“At KPMG our people are our greatest resource,” says Pierre Portelli, human resources partner, KPMG Malta. “In fact the skills, knowledge and capabilities of our people are central to our success. We invest heavily in our people because they are the building blocks that serve as the backbone of our firm.”

KPMG personnel are given the opportunity to embark upon a challenging and fulfilling career that affords them the opportunity for continuous training, personal and professional development and career progression that dovetails with their professional aspirations and personal development goals. This goes beyond the traditional classroom learning and workshops but takes the form of innovative learning processes like self-study and e-learning.

“For our recruits the journey begins the moment they walk through our door,” adds Portelli. “Our comprehensive induction programme provides a solid background in internal office procedures and our auditing, taxation and advisory practices. Regardless of the individual’s level or function, a clear training path is set which is delivered locally as well as within the wider KPMG network.

“Being part of the global KPMG network provides our people with the opportunity to be actively involved in international engagements. Furthermore, every year several members of our team go on international secondments with KPMG member firms in a number of cities in Europe, the US and Canada.

“KPMG makes available a number of study routes for aspiring professionals. Our programmes include the university graduate programme, the ACCA programme and the ACA programme. We constantly encourage and support our people to further their studies and obtain professional qualifications. In fact, KPMG are winners of the FHRD Learning and Development as well as the FHRD Employee Engagement awards.”
