Life at Deloitte
Women at Deloitte
Deloitte sees the advancement of women as a strategic priority, in attracting and retaining the best talent, and delivering top service to its clients.
Our talent experience
Our clients choose Deloitte for innovative and pragmatic solutions for their most complex issues. We absolutely believe that diverse teams are simply better in delivering a top client experience. To make this happen, skilled people and inspiring leaders really matter.
The Swiss firm is especially committed to women's advancement; in FY18, women represent 27% of our Executive and 36% of our people.
We support female leaders through various internal and external initiatives, including:
- tailored learning and development programmes
- internal coaching and networking events
- speaking engagements and sponsorships of various external initiatives
- our working parents policy
- and many more
The benefits of gender mixed leadership teams are well known: higher productivity, more innovation power, longer-term business impact and sustainability in our workplaces.
In March 2017, together with 40 CEOs and leaders united under the Advance Women in Business umbrella, we publicly committed to concrete gender equality goals.
One year later, we are proud to announce that we are making great progress towards achieving our goal to promote female leadership:
Gender equality is important for businesses to attract and retain the best talent. In 2017, we committed to increase our senior female leadership by 10 percentage points to 30% by 2020. One year into our commitment, we have already increased the percentage of senior female leadership by 4 percentage points. In addition to this ongoing commitment to increase senior female leadership, Deloitte Switzerland is committed to increase the number of women in technology roles in our organisation by 5 percentage points within the next year.
Simon Owen, Chief Executive
Deloitte, a member of Advance Women in Swiss Business
Deloitte is a member of Advance, an association and a network that takes specific measures to increase the share of women in leading positions in Switzerland.
Sustained success depends on having a balanced gender mix at all levels of an organisation. Advance promotes the personal and professional development of highly qualified women who seek greater influence, visibility and impact, helping them unleash their full potential, and thus become the architects of their own careers.
Deloitte’s great claim is that day in and day out it does, what counts when it comes to having a positive and long-term impact - on clients, employees and society. Martina Bender-Scheel, Head of Talent Strategy & Culture, explains how that comes about.
