From the Advice Worth Keeping podcast series
Hosted by Stan Lepeak, Global Research Director,
KPMG LLP Management Consulting


This podcast series from KPMG’s Management Consulting group was recorded immediately before the changeover in the presidential administration.


Immigration-related campaign promises made by presidential candidate Donald Trump, and statements he has made since becoming President, are raising wide-ranging concerns in the global services industry.

In this podcast, Dave Brown, the Global Lead for KPMG’s Shared Services and Outsourcing Advisory practice, spoke with Stan Lepeak about:

  • The impacts of potential changes to the H1-B visa program, tax reform, and other public policies may have on both services buyers and providers
  • Why the “war on talent” is more critical than ever
  • Immediate actions organizations can take to mitigate possible risks, including assessing their global sourcing model, their current outsourcing contract work, and their local talent supply pool
