Two years in a row KPMG has succeeded in The World’s Most Attractive Employers index
KPMG, the global network of professional firms, has been ranked second for two years running on the index of The World’s Most Attractive Employers. Universum, a global talent consultant, develops its global index of the top 50 most attractive employers every year by asking students pursuing business and engineering degrees to identify their ideal employers. In 2011, 160,000 students from the world’s top academic institutions participated.
Last year, KPMG announced that its member firms will hire approximately 75,000 campus graduates worldwide, representing a 25-percent increase in campus resourcing targets. KPMG in the Czech Republic recruited 80 graduates in 2011 and is planning to employ a similar number this year.

The KPMG global network of professional firms was named sustainable Firm of the Year 2012 by the International Accounting Bulletin as part of its IAB Awards.
