KPMG: Outstanding Contribution to Young Talent Development Qatar 2023


KPMG started out in Qatar in 1977 and is one of the most prestigious professional firms in the country, offering audit, tax and advisory services. In a mid-December statement to the UN, the state emphasised that youth empowerment aligns strongly with its National Vision 2030. This vision is to transform Qatar into an advanced country capable of sustainable development and ensuring a decent life for its people generation after generation. Qatar ranks highly on the Youth Development Index (YDI) thanks to substantial government efforts. But according to the CFI judging panel, “the private sector has a key role to play too, and KMPG’s efforts have been exemplary.” The firm is committed to providing work experience to young Qataris and employs many interns and graduates. This commitment extends to ongoing technical training and hands-on experience under the guidance of professional staff. KPMG alumni have leadership roles in the public and private sectors and help create a bright future for the country. There is a culture of continuous learning, and the KPMG Business School offers the latest technical, business and leadership skills development. The firm supports education, training, and the community. KPMG in Qatar employs over 350 professional staff and partners and recruits the best and brightest (drawing on 42 nationalities). This creates an atmosphere of excellence and provides examples of latest thinking and best practice. The panel congratulates KPMG in Qatar and confirms the 2023 award Outstanding Contribution to Young Talent Development (Qatar).
