KPMG employees - additional information

The number of KPMG employees has risen year-on-year. In 2019, the company employed almost 220,000 people worldwide, the largest proportion of which was in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMA), where just under 112,000 employees resided. There were more than 61,000 KPMG employees in the Americas and over 46,000 in the Asia Pacific region. Around 78 percent of KPMG employees were classed as professionals. The remaining 22 percent was comprised of partners and administration at five and 17 percent, respectively.

KPMG was the fourth largest audit and accountancy firm in the world in 2019, generating 29.75 billion U.S. dollars in revenue. Together with Deloitte, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and Ernst & Young, KPMG makes up one quarter of the “Big Four” – the top four audit and accountancy firms worldwide. Deloitte was the largest of the four, with revenue of 46.2 billion U.S. dollars in that year. The companies offer such services as auditing, assurance and corporate finance, among others, with the largest proportion of their revenue coming from their auditing and assurance segments. Together, the firms employ over one million people worldwide.

Despite its high ranking as an accountancy firm, KPMG only made it to ninth place in a list of the most prestigious consulting firms in the United States in 2019. That said, the largest share of KPMG’s business is conducted in the EMA region where 43 percent of the firms' revenue was generated.
