KPMG HAS recruited Stephen Frost, the mastermind behind diversifying the Olympics, to lead its own inclusion efforts.

Head of diversity and inclusion at the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG), Frost achieved high levels of inclusion across the 200,000 staff members involved in the Olympics.

This diversity included, 9% disabled, 46% female, 5% LGBT staff and 40% minority group staff. The Paralympic games also saw large numbers of diverse groups participate.

"Everyone remembers the London 2012 games as a triumph of diversity and engagement. We want to bring something of that into our own environment," said Simon Collins, chairman and senior partner at KPMG.

Frost will join the firm in February from his post as a visiting fellow at Harvard University.

Frost added: "As an organisation, KPMG has come a long way. Now I want to help them go even further and put diversity and inclusion right at the heart of their people approach."
