Life at Deloitte
Corporate Social Responsibility
At Deloitte, we are committed to being good corporate citizens and we take our responsibility to the planet and local communities seriously. We believe passionately in the need to invest in the communities in which we work and live. Each year, we identify where our skills, expertise and financial contribution can have the greatest impact, and ways in which we can effectively engage our people.
Our staff and partners came together to donate tens of thousands of dollars to worthy causes within the Southeast Asia region and beyond. Besides our own local charitable causes, the SEA practices also stepped up to support our Asia Pacific neighbours in their times of crisis, with substantial donations to the New Zealand earthquake relief fund and the Japan earthquake/tsunami that devastated many lives.
But it’s not just about money, we also donate our time, expertise and the support of our people to a number of worthy causes.
Making an impact
IMPACT Day is one of our key corporate responsibility events every year and an embodiment of the firm’s longstanding commitment to contributing back to the communities that we work and live in. Following the success of our first ever SEA-wide IMPACT Day in 2012, our second SEA-wide IMPACT Day was held on 30 August 2013, where each country practice participated in various activities using their professional skills, expertise and financial contributions to make an impact on their selected beneficiaries. The third SEA-wide IMPACT Day in Deloitte Southeast Asia was held on the 29 August 2014.
Impact Day- Malaysia
Close to 750 of our Deloitte Malaysia colleagues from Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Melaka, Johor Bahru, Kuching, Ipoh, and Kota Kinabalu offices organised an exciting line-up of activities on IMPACT Day to engage with underprivileged and underserved children across all ages.
As the headquarters of Deloitte Malaysia, our volunteers in Kuala Lumpur engaged the underprivileged from seven beneficiaries - children and youth from local orphanages, the disabled, the poor and needy, as well as the environment. Activities included fundraising, educational lessons as well as general cleaning and maintenance works.
In Penang, Melaka, Johor Bahru and Kuching, volunteers organised educational and fun activities for the children of The Cerebral Palsy Children’s Association of Penang, Happiness Centre for The Mentally Disable Children, Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat – Pemulihan Dalam Komuniti, as well as Pertubuhan Ibu Bapa Kanak-Kanak Keperluan Istimewa Sarawak, respectively.
At the same time, our Deloitte Malaysia volunteers in Ipoh worked with the Precious Gift Home to enhance its study facilities, while our volunteers in Kota Kinabalu shared insights on audit and tax subjects with undergraduates at the Sabah campus of Universiti Teknologi Mara.
