KPMG tops best big company list

Three of Big Four feature in Sunday Times' best big companies to work for survey, with KPMG heading the list

KPMG’s move to reduce the working week to four days seems to have had little
negaitve effect on its employees, with the firm nabbing the Best Big Company to
work for award in the Sunday Times’s list out on 8 March.

This it the second year in a row the accountancy firm has won the award and
third overall. Fellow big firms PricewaterhouseCoopers came in at seventh place
and Deloitte at ninth for the Top 20 large companies to work for award.

John Griffith-Jones, chairman of KPMG in the UK, said: ‘These are difficult
times for the UK economy, and for companies and employees everywhere. The state
of the economy may be beyond our immediate control but the way we work together
is ours to choose. A sense of shared values and collective purpose will be more
important than ever if companies are to weather the storm.’

KPMG has made the top three since the list was first compiled in 2005. Bourne
Leisure came second, American Express third, Mariott Hotels fourth, and Mott
MacDonald at fifth.
