KPMG – one of the world`s top consulting firms – comes to West Bengal
KPMG, one of the world`s top four consulting firms, has taken a leap of faith in Bengal. The firm is scaling up its presence in Kolkata to tap opportunities in the east, taking up space totalling 30,000 sq ft at Godrej Waterside IT park in Sector V of Salt Lake. It has the option to add another 20,000 sq ft.Now there are about 150 people. The firm wants to take it up to 600-700 in the next two to three years.
With the recent surge in industry and education facilities in Bengal, brought in by the Trinamool Congress Government, more and more global firms want to set up business in Bengal. The state has been producing the best brains in all sectors. The last 34 years of the Left rule saw a migration of these excellent scholars to other states. The new Government had been instrumental in keeping these scholars and brilliant minds in the state by creating proper placement opportunities.
According to KPMG, the placement requirement will go up further when the firm manages to turn the city facility into a talent acquisition hub for the rest of the country.
