Deloitte

Deloitte provides industry-leading audit, consulting, tax, and advisory services to many of the world’s most admired brands, including 80% of the Fortune 500. Our people work across more than 20 industry sectors with one purpose: to deliver measurable, lasting results. Clients count on Deloitte to help them transform uncertainty into possibility and rapid change into lasting progress. Our people know how to anticipate, collaborate, and innovate, and create opportunity from even the unforeseen obstacle. It’s clear why our commitment to an inclusive culture has remained strong: Our people are our most valuable asset.

For nearly 25 years we’ve been leading the way with our inclusive culture, and we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished:

As the workforce needs and expectations have evolved, so too has our approach and priorities. Globalization, technology, and evolving workforce priorities are redefining what we mean by an inclusive culture.

Today, Inclusion at Deloitte focuses on authenticity, well-being, openness, and opportunities for all of our people. This broader definition of inclusion allows us to bring a wide range of thinking, perspectives, and experiences that build intellectual and creative advantage, even as needs and priorities evolve over time. Inclusion goes beyond traditional demographics and representation, it’s how we invite, encourage, and draw on the unique perspectives of our people. By exploring individual viewpoints with genuine interest and openness, we can better engage our people and match them to the most meaningful opportunities.

This new way of thinking also shapes our approach to well-being. At Deloitte, we know well-being needs are likely different for everyone. We provide our people the support and flexibility to make daily choices that can enable them to be energized, confident, and aware. Through our comprehensive benefits, resources, and learning programs, we create opportunities for our people to personalize their experiences in the ways that matter most to them in body, mind, and purpose. More importantly, we are fostering a culture of well-being that respects how our people prioritize their personal and professional needs and responsibilities.

While we’ve made great progress and have been recognized for our innovative approach to inclusion, we aren’t done yet! Just as we have always done, we continue to look for opportunities to lead the way and evolve our thinking.
