Deloitte continues to grow strongly in Finland
For the sixth consecutive year
Deloitte Finland’s revenue for the fiscal year that ended 31 May 2023 increased by 25% to 150 M euros as all the firms’ strategic industries drove growth across all business units. Deloitte continues to grow rapidly in Finland; this is the sixth consecutive year with double-digit growth. The firm had, for the first time ever, over 800 practitioners at the end of the fiscal year as the number of employees grew by over 10%.
Deloitte supported its clients in navigating through the accelerate phase of technology-driven change and the economic and geopolitical uncertainty, focusing on business resilience and opportunities for growth. In both audit and advisory services, we continued to uphold public trust and to help our clients to navigate the most complex challenges of our time.
“We saw significant demand across all our services and industry groups, particularly in Financial Services, Energy, Resources and Industrials, and in the Public and Government Sector. Also, our strategic choice to put extra focus on selected large companies and public sector organisations has paid off since we saw good development in our strategic accounts. We thank our great clients for putting their trust in us,” says Deloitte Finland’s CEO Lari Hintsanen.
For example, our teams have been working with clients in embedding digital into every aspect of their operations, readying businesses to protect themselves against cyber threats and other potential discontinuities and helping clients to execute transformative M&A transactions. Most importantly, and underpinned by our commitment to making an impact that matters, we delivered solutions for society’s ESG journey.
“We are in the perfect position to respond to market demand as the world’s largest professional services firm. We can bring together people with varied skillsets from across the world and equip our talent with leading technological assets to help our clients. To this end, we have made significant steps in advancing and using global delivery models to ensure our local clients always have access to the leading specialists and technology from our network of over 450 000 employees,” Hintsanen continues.
Hintsanen went on to say, “Last fiscal year our number of employees in Finland grew by over 10%. We aim to grow both locally and internationally in the future. We are investing a lot in hybrid ways or working and flexibility. It is our culture to retain our talent and attract new specialists with diverse backgrounds. Today, we already employ employees from over 30 nationalities in our Finnish offices. We are exceptionally happy to be able to provide so many new graduates with an opportunity to grow with us. This has also been noted in the talent market, with us seeing a more than 50% increase in young professionals’ applications to our trainee positions in the calendar year 2023.
“The market outlook is challenging”, says Hintsanen: “We are not immune to uncertainties and changes in the market. But our aspiration to build ourselves into the leading and most impactful transformative service provider in the Finnish market provides us with a great platform for differentiating us in the marketplace. I am proud of our great team that takes pride in upholding public trust and helping our clients to navigate the complex challenges of our time. This team gives me confidence in heading forward in the current environment, where the Finnish economy is faced with an absolute need to execute a transformation in a variety of areas in order to correct its course.”
