Each employee is part of something bigger


Published:

KPMG LLP

www.kpmg.com

Location: Denver

Rank: 2 in the large company category

The culture: Each employee is part of something bigger. “Whether instilling trust in capital markets, helping clients make better business decisions, helping clients understand and respond to regulatory complexity, or helping identify and address community needs, being part of something beyond one’s individual work is a strong component of KPMG’s culture,” said an employee on the assessment. 

Perks: Six hours of free New Parent Career Coaching to support and improve retention as both men and women work through this life transition. Specially trained coaches help employees think through perceived barriers, identify and develop action plans, and create solutions that allow them to remain engaged and committed to their KPMG careers. To make sure employees are rested before the industry’s “busy season” –January to April – the firm closes for the last two weeks of the calendar year.

Giving back: In 2014, the Denver offices gave 1,317 volunteer hours and more than $230,000 to roughly 55 organizations in need, including Junior Achievement, JDRF, Denver Children’s Home, Boy Scouts of America, AMP the Cause, First Book, Denver Road Home and the Mile High United Way. KPMG’s Family for Literacy program puts new books into the homes of underserved children throughout the U.S. KPMG’s Denver office has donated more than 26,000 books to children in the Denver metro area.

The inside scoop: Last summer, KPMG leadership launched the “10,000 Stories Challenge,”  which generated nearly 41,000 employee stories, including 1,690 from Denver. Among the responses: “I helped build Colorado’s future. I helped Colorado companies access capital to develop new technologies, bring new drugs to market and create opportunities for (Coloradans). The work we do for our clients in Denver helps them provide electricity to the U.S., paving the way for development and comfortable living.” Denver’s overwhelming response led to a $20,000 award for the office to donate to local charities.
