KPMG  launches new hybrid working strategy

KPMG  UK  has launched  a “four-day fortnight”  as  part of a package of measures designed to offer  greater  flexibility, choice and support to its people. 


As part of the firm’s new hybrid way of working, from June onwards, the expectation will be that KPMG’s people spend up to four days in the office spread over a fortnight, with the rest spent at home or at client sites.   This plan comes in response to feedback from staff who have said that they would feel comfortable spending most of their time at home.


The firm’s people will attend their KPMG office to work, for meetings or training that need to be held in person, but will not have to stay for the whole day. They will be empowered to manage the rest of their working week virtually from home.


Building on the successes realised in the past year of remote working, the new strategy has been designed  in  consultation with KPMG’s 16,000 strong workforce  and aims to  offer greater flexibility and choice.


In a recent  staff  survey  undertaken in March , 87 percent of respondents said they liked  not having to commute; 76 percent enjoyed the greater flexibility working from home offers and 65 percent felt they now have a better work/life balance. 


Jon Holt, chief executive at KPMG UK, said:  “We trust our people. Our new way of working will empower them and enable them to design their own working week. The pandemic has proven it’s not about where you work, but how you work.


“We have listened to our people and designed this strategy around our staff and how they can best support our clients.”


The firm has also launched a range of measures to support the wellbeing of its staff. All  UK staff  will be given  an additional day off on June 21 and an extra two and a half hours off every  week  over the summer, to give people time away from work  and  to re-energise.  


The new package of measures forms part of KPMG’s wider investment in hybrid working. Over the course of 2021  the firm  will roll out an additional £44m programme of investment to transform its offices  into collaborative spaces  and invest in new home working technology for staff. 


The firm’s planned adoption of hybrid working will see workplaces evolve into space used primarily for collaboration, teamwork and learning.
