At Deloitte, we know that families come in all shapes and sizes.
Whether you are a carer, parent (including birth, adoptive, surrogate, foster and same-sex parents), spouse, or friend, we know that family matters.
If you’re getting ready to begin your parenting journey, supporting elderly parents, or caring for a loved one with a disability or serious illness, we understand how important it is that you feel supported in your caring responsibilities.

Discover how we can support you
We offer a range of policies, programs and benefits to support families at different stages and provide our people with choice and flexibility in how they live, work and care.
We know that there are many stages in starting a family and it is not always easy.
Undergoing fertility treatment can be emotionally and physically difficult. We offer five days of paid leave each year to support this journey.
In the very unfortunate case of a miscarriage, we offer ten days of paid leave to receive the support needed at this difficult time.
In the devastating circumstance of a stillbirth, we provide access to the full 18-week parental leave entitlement.
We have designed a Parental Leave policy and experience that provides flexibility and choice when it comes to caring for children.
Our Policy is inclusive of all types of families including birth, adoptive, surrogate, foster and same-sex parents. We encourage all parents, regardless of gender, to take an active role in the caring responsibilities for their families.
Our parents can access Parental Leave from the day they join Deloitte, including:
- 18 weeks of paid parental leave for everyone: no more maternity, paternity, primary or secondary carer labels.
- Continued superannuation contributions on unpaid parental leave (up to 52 weeks), to provide greater financial security for the future as well as addressing the gender pay gap
- Extended time to take parental leave, with the option to spread your parental leave over 36 months and take it flexibly to suit each family’s unique needs
- Co-parenting - both parents may access paid and unpaid parental leave at the same time, or at different times
Returning to work
We understand that life changes when we become parents and carers.
Career goals, personal priorities, time, and values can shift. We offer three personalised one-on-one coaching sessions to support the transition out of and back into work.
Return to Work payment
We know from feedback that the key pressures facing families are time and financial commitments. To help reduce that pressure, new parents returning to work after a continuous break (18 weeks or more) of parental leave will receive an additional support payment for a period of 12 months.
New parents working 3 or 4 days a week will be paid for an extra day a week for the first 12 months, and those working less than 3 days a week will be paid for an extra half a day. This payment gives our parents more flexibility and financial support during the transition back to work from parental leave.
Relief from financial KPIs
Returning parents will also have relief from their financial Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for 12 months.
There are twelve different ways to flex with DeloitteFlex. These ways of working put our people at the centre. Some options include hours flex, travel flex, wellbeing flex, leave flex and cultural day flex.
Supporting families with school aged children
You can work more flexibly in the school holidays
We know that school holidays are a time where you may need extra support to manage logistics and spend time with your children.
Our people can now use TimeFlex to work flexibly during school holidays, working their usual weekly hours over fewer days (working up to a maximum of 12 hours on any given day, limited to 10 hours for Award employees). They may may wish to use LeaveFlex to purchase extra annual leave to use during school holidays; or could use PlaceFlex to work from a different location during the holidays.
Caring for others
We recognise that there are many family care arrangements, including caring for elderly parents and loved ones with a disability or serious illness.
Deloitte Families Hub
Deloitte has partnered with Parents at Work to provide access to the Deloitte Families Hub – a central location full of useful resources such as handy guides, checklists, podcasts and webinars on a range of topics, including parenting and caring (including aged and disability care), career, wellbeing and work-life balance.
We are proud of our rich cultural diversity, and we understand the importance of significant cultural and religious events. CulturalFlex provides the flexibility to substitute up to two public holidays each calendar year for cultural or religious days of significance.
We offer a range of leave types including the option to purchase additional annual leave or take time out for the things that matter.
Wellbeing Day: we offer a paid leave day every year to focus on wellbeing. We know that wellbeing means something different for everyone – so it’s up to our people as to how they would like to spend it!
Domestic and Family Violence leave: For our people and their loved ones affected by Domestic and Family Violence, we offer a range of support including paid leave, financial assistance and unlimited counselling services.
Designed by our employees and for our employees.
Deloitte offers a range of great deals across healthcare, travel, entertainment, health & fitness, household appliances, motor vehicles and banking. We also offer Medibank or BUPA Corporate deals providing discounts on health insurance for our people and their families.

Supporting mental health is a critical aspect of inclusion and we’re working to address the stigma that still too often exists within society on this topic. We recognise the importance of our people knowing how and where to seek support when they are experiencing mental health challenges and raising such concerns without fear of stigma.
We offer several ways in which our people can look after their health: from flu vaccinations, accessing self-care resources, coaching services and access to our EAP for all Partners, employees and their families.
