KPMG has announced the launch of a metaverse collaboration hub where employees, clients and communities will connect, engage and explore opportunities for growth across industries and sectors. It will lead the people and clients into Web 3.0.
The new development is an effort of both the US and Canada offices of KPMG and the two offices will now develop their own metaverse strategy.
The metaverse will help to co-create new tools and solutions that provide critical insights, launch immersive learning and development platforms, recruit talent to lend expertise and help navigate the evolving convergence of the physical and digital worlds.
Laura Newinski, deputy chair & chief operating officer, KPMG US, says in an official communique, “The metaverse is a market opportunity, a way to re-engage talent and a path to connect people across the globe through a new collaborative experience.”
“The world has changed drastically over the last few years, and our people and clients are interested in exploring new ways of working. This offers them a new immersive space to exchange ideas,” adds Elio Luongo, chief executive officer and senior partner, KPMG Canada.
KPMG predicts that by 2030, we could be spending more time in the metaverse than in the real world. “People will be applying for jobs, earning a living, meeting with friends, shopping, even getting married using the virtual capabilities of the metaverse,” a KPMG report states.
