At RSM, our people are our most valuable asset. We want to create a strong sense of belonging so that people of all identities, backgrounds, and cultures feel they can bring their true self to work.

Our clients come from all walks of life. We aim to achieve that same diversity of background, experience and perspective in our own teams, so that we can genuinely understand our client’s needs. 

Diverse teams bring a broader range of ideas and insights to work. That’s why we’re working together with all our stakeholders to ensure our firm’s principles and processes support a firm culture that embraces difference and strengthens inclusion. 

Listen. Educate. Act. 

To drive forward our ambition to ensure all our people feel valued we have set out a strategy of dialogue, understanding, and action. We consider this agenda to be a business imperative.

Quote I want for RSM to provide an environment where people feel confident they can progress as far as their talents, hard work and application take them.



If we recruit, train and develop talented people from a range of ethnic, socio-economic, and cultural backgrounds we will build a better business. One that provides challenging and rewarding careers to our people and best supports the needs of our clients.

Rob Donaldson, CEO

 

 

Our respect networks

Our employee networks play a crucial role in the delivery of our Listen. Educate. Act strategy. They provide a sense of community across geographical regions, allowing our employees to develop professionally and personally, share experiences and actively support diversity and inclusion initiatives.

Networks are open to everyone to join and support our commitment to creating and sustaining an inclusive culture.
