Manager, HR Shared Service Centre

KPMG’s HR focus for the past couple of years has been on developing a talent pipeline, and Emilie Inakazu has been significantly involved in these major initiatives. The most recent example is a firm-wide campus program that extends opportunities for young professionals to work in various business units and gain the experience needed to start off their careers. To ensure the success of the program, Inakazu set up the mechanisms needed to measure the effectiveness of the program, conducted data analysis and presented the results to the steering committee, which was then able to improve the program for the following year. In the course of recruiting junior talent, Inakazu also conducts information sessions for students considering careers in HR, which helps grow KPMG’s talent pipeline and positions the company so it’s front of mind for future HR stars.
