What we do
Our purpose at Deloitte is to make an impact that matters to our clients, our people and society. We work with our clients to help them identify and solve complex issues, and we provide insight and opinion on marketplace developments that are impacting both national and global organisations in Switzerland.
In recent years, Deloitte Switzerland made significant strategic investments in integrating transformational technologies and data analytics into its solutions to drive greater value for clients. Deloitte further grew its business, its people, and the impact the firm has on its clients and the society through:
- Capitalising on Deloitte’s global alliances with leading digital innovators including Apple, Google, Amazon WebServices, Facebook, HP, SAP, and Salesforce to help Swiss clients address their toughest business transformation and technology challenges.
- With Deloitte Garage, creating a platform for clients to experience new business models, business ecosystems and technologies. The platform enables us to test different technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Big Data/Analytics, helping us to problem-solve and find solutions for our clients while helping leaders transition into new digital roles – alongside our own learning in the newly built incubator and insights spaces for Deloitte practitioners.
- Working closely with the Deloitte global network, the UK firm and local regulators to match the audit of the future to the evolving needs and complexity of stakeholders and society; whilst also continuing to invest in training and technology to help our audit professionals deliver high-quality audits.
- Bringing Switzerland’s Board, CFO and CIO communities even closer together, providing platforms to exchange ideas and experiences on organisations’ most pressing challenges, from accelerating technology-enabled business transformation and building tomorrow’s workforce and workplace, to responding to the fast-paced changes in global mobility and the global tax, risk and regulatory landscapes.
- Leveraging Deloitte’s global network of offices and technology delivery centres to better serve clients’ increasingly global and digitally-connected structures.
Deloitte Switzerland has increased its net revenue by 5.0 per cent, from CHF 481 million to CHF 506 million, in the fiscal year ending 31 May 2020. This marks the continuation of Deloitte’s growth path over the last decade, as the professional services firm continues to invest in its audit footprint, each of its businesses, and its people. The firm’s Audit & Assurance, Consulting, Financial Advisory, Risk Advisory and Tax & Legal business areas all contributed to the firm’s performance. Among the sectors driving Deloitte’s growth were industrial products, consumer, life sciences and health care, and financial services.

A story that matters
We believe that we’re only as good as the good we do.
All the facts and figures that talk of our size, diversity and years of history, as notable and important as they may be, are secondary to the truest measure of Deloitte: the impact we make in the world.
So, when people ask, “what’s different about Deloitte?” the answer resides in the many specific examples of where we have helped Deloitte member firm clients, our people, and sections of society to achieve remarkable goals, solve complex problems or make meaningful progress. Deeper still, it is the beliefs, behaviours and fundamental sense of purpose that underpin all that we do.
With 175 years of hard work and commitment to making a real difference, our organisation has grown in scale and diversity, yet our shared culture remains the same.
For us, good isn’t good enough. We aim to be the best at all that we do—to help clients realise their ambitions; to make a positive difference in society; and to maximise the success of our people. This drive fuels the commitment and humanity that run deep through our every action.
That’s what makes us truly different at Deloitte. Not how big we are, where we are, nor what services we offer. What really defines us is our drive to make an impact that matters in the world.
