The past year gave the world more—more responsibilities, financial uncertainty, extreme weather events, societal unrest and stress.
It also gave us less—less personal interaction, travel, entertainment, communal events and volunteer opportunities.
It was, more or less, a strange and challenging period for most people.
It also was an unusual year for organizations, like Deloitte, that are committed to helping people fulfill their aspirations and potential. To overcome the lack of in-person connections, we found innovative ways of developing and supporting our people to help them feel heard and valued. We also lent our professional capabilities and resources to the fight against COVID-19, while still advancing our goal of connecting underserved segments of society to education and jobs.
