Additional findings:

  • “With an insightful and comprehensive point of view about the role of benefits in an evolving talent marketplace, Deloitte combines a strategic perspective with deep technical, industry, and functional expertise. Deloitte complements this approach with primary market research on mega-trends and HR best practices to create innovative models and holistic frameworks that help clients think beyond point solutions for longer-term strategies that address the challenges of benefits provision.”
  • “Deloitte’s culture of innovation extends to benefits consulting. Deloitte’s ongoing research into the evolving talent marketplace sheds new light on the role of benefits as more than a rewards mechanism, but as an integral component of its model for the Open Talent Economy.”

Its go-to-market strategy targets C-suite stakeholders, emphasizing themes around cost optimization, risk, and employee value. Although services can be delivered as point solutions, real value is unlocked when they are integrated and underpinned by an overarching human capital strategy that aligns with business strategy.”

These core competencies are enhanced by deep industry, sector, and functional expertise.”
