DOHA – For the third straight year, KPMG has been named in Consulting magazine’s list of ‘Best Firms to Work For.’ For 2017, the global network of independent audit, tax and advisory firms which employs over 270 people in Qatar, jumped six spots to No. 7 – the highest ranking of the Big Four professional services firms – and excelled in the areas of culture and career development.
“In recent years, Qatar’s businesses and organisations have seen tremendous opportunities to grow, and develop for their own and the country’s benefit. I am immensely proud of how our professionals at KPMG in Qatar have helped clients succeed and grow in this continually evolving market,” said Ahmed Abu-Sharkh, Country Senior Partner for KPMG in Qatar. “In addition to our service offerings and capabilities, ultimately what makes the difference to our clients is their experience when they work with exceptional people. Receiving this award reflects our ongoing commitment to ensuring that our firm is a great place to work for our people, enabling them to perform at their best when working with clients.”
The ranking is based on Consulting’s annual survey of more than 10,000 consultants from over 300 firms. Reaching new heights on the Consulting list adds to recent accolades for KPMG this year, including attaining the #12 spot on Fortune Magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For, earning highest ranking of the Big Four professional services firms, Diversity Inc.’s Top 50 Companies for Diversity, and being named to the Vault Consulting 50.
“Being a ‘Best Firm to Work For’ validates what we and our clients have known for years – that we place significant priority on our developing our people and strive to create a culture of innovation and inclusion – particularly important when we have nearly 30 different nationalities working in our Qatar office,” continued Abu-Sharkh. “When employees are engaged and enjoy working for KPMG, they carry out their duties with pride and maximum effort and our clients recognize this in the quality of our work.”
