2018 NWE Impact Awards

Local winners

The North West Europe Impact Awards celebrate initiatives that put Deloitte’s purpose – making an impact that matters – into action. Discover the ways we’ve made an impact for our clients, our people, and society.

Established on 1 June 2017, Deloitte North West Europe (NWE) is a cooperative agreement between member firms in Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK. The collaboration allows us to better serve the needs of our increasingly cross-border clients. It also creates more career opportunities for Deloitte professionals in the region.

The NWE Impact Awards give professionals from the ten member firms the opportunity to showcase their projects and the impact they made in 2017. Out of 770 entries overall, Belgium submitted 133.

An executive panel including Eric Callewaert, Managing Partner Clients & Industries, Inge Diels, Partner Talent, and Claire Van Bergen, Senior Director Deloitte Foundation chose the top six teams. To recognise their great work, the teams were invited to a celebratory breakfast with CEO Piet Vandendriessche.

The six projects are:

  1. Bridging the GAAP
    Keeping our market position with innovation, automation, and flexible delivery models in compliance with the most complex accounting standards.

  2. Connected Patient
    The future of care is the use of tech to optimise treatment efficacy and improve the patient experience.

  3. Donate, Don’t Destruct
    Using inventory analytics to help clients reduce waste and donate more medicine to underdeveloped countries.

  4. Energise@Deloitte
    Our health and well-being programme, with an online platform, activity trackers, sport event participation, ambassadors, and activities in and out of the office.

  5. My Benefits My Choice
    Our flexible benefits programme giving people more choices to organise life and work.

  6. Next Generation Infrastructure (NGIN)
    An analytics-driven global platform to optimise asset performance.

The awards were announced at the 2018 NWE Partner Meeting in Brussels in June. We’re proud that the winners included three Belgian entries: Connected Patient, Bridging the GAAP, and Donate, Don’t Destruct (the winner of our firmwide people’s vote).
