To be up and running quickly and effectively deployable, KPMG offers an onboarding program. A program that focuses on people and connects new colleagues.


InContext, in co-creation with KPMG, has designed a customized program that delivers lasting impact. Input from interviews and frequent coordination led to a balanced program consisting of, among other things, storytelling, group challenges, introspection, and working on case studies.

An important part of the program is the Align game. Participants work on various challenges, events, opportunities and dilemmas from the KPMG practice in which they are challenged to act in line with the KPMG core values.
