Exceptional organizations that flourish over time are defined by a purpose, and Deloitte’s purpose is to make an impact that matters – for member firm clients, our people, and society. This purpose is embedded throughout our global network. It defines who we are. It lies at the heart of the work of our network’s 225,400 people across more than 150 countries.
Living our purpose is also at the foundation of the Deloitte network’s strong FY2015 performance. Despite global economic and geopolitical challenges, Deloitte achieved aggregate global revenues of US$35.2 billion, representing growth of 7.6 percent in local currency terms. Deloitte hired approximately 62,000 new professionals last year and invested more than US$200 million in community and societal impact initiatives around the world.
Deloitte professionals take great pride in the many ways the organization serves stakeholders around the world, and our 12th Global Report highlights some of the best examples from the past year through the lens of clients, talent, and society.
Deloitte member firms serve clients and markets with quality and distinction, bringing trust and confidence to the capital markets, delivering innovative insights, solving complex challenges, and unlocking sustainable growth. Member firms strive to be the first choice of clients—whether they need confidence to take decisive action; require a high-quality audit of their financial statements; seek experience on complex tax issues; or face a “bet-the-company” challenge.
Deloitte member firms invest in their talented professionals so they may deliver outstanding value to clients. We mentor and develop future leaders, providing an exceptional career experience and an inclusive, collaborative culture. Our network aims to be the premier career destination for the best and brightest minds.
Deloitte contributes to society, building confidence and trust in the markets, fostering the integrity of organizations, and supporting our communities. Our organization remains committed to sustainability and to supporting the U.N. Global Compact. We aspire to be a role model of quality, integrity, and positive change, helping to solve the toughest global challenges.
In all we do, Deloitte aspires to be not necessarily the biggest, but the best—the undisputed global leader in professional services. Our network continues to leverage global scale, new technologies, and deep industry insights to help member firm clients maximize opportunities and manage risks in a borderless and uncertain environment.
We begin our respective terms this year—as Deloitte Global Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Deloitte Global Board of Directors—honored to support our member firm colleagues around the world as they build on the Deloitte network’s rich heritage of serving member firm clients, our people, and our communities.
