KPMG ranks highly as gay and lesbian employer

Firm named 8th best place to work for gay and lesbian people

Big four firm KPMG has been named the
joint 8th best employer of gay and lesbian people following the
Stonewall’s Workplace
Equality Index
for 2007.

Last year the firm was ranked outside the top 100, and this year it is the
only of the Big Four firms to make it into the Top 50.

The survey compares employers’ policies and practices towards gay and lesbian
people.

Ashley
Steel
, KPMG Board champion for sexual orientation, commented: ‘I’m delighted
with our performance. Last year we failed to get a ranking in the Top 100 so
this year’s result is a real testament to the firm’s commitment to creating an
inclusive environment over the past 12 months. We can’t be complacent, though,
and I am determined to see progress continue over the coming year!’

Colin Cook, KPMG UK, CEO commented: ‘This is a great result. It sends an
important message to potential recruits, our people and our clients that KPMG is
the best choice for all, irrespective of sexual orientation’.
