Back in 1856, a little more than a decade after starting his own accounting firm, William Deloitte made a name for himself by exposing fraud in the railroad industry and inventing a system to protect investors from mismanagement of funds. His commitment to servant leadership—to being a force for good—lives on today as a core element of Deloitte’s culture.
The impact of that commitment, though, is now felt on a much larger stage than William Deloitte could ever have imagined. The Deloitte network uses the strength of its global network to help shape society and drive change that matters.
We treat our role in society as a privilege, and lead by example and positive influence that is exercised in a variety of ways.
We contribute to society through the work we do. Deloitte fills the vital role of the independent auditor, maintaining the integrity of the financial reporting process and preserving the public's trust in our capital markets. Deloitte’s consulting services offer innovative solutions that help businesses thrive, which is essential for a healthy, vibrant economy and society. Through these and other services, member firm professionals help their clients successfully handle a broad range of risks, crises, and complex challenges, strengthening their businesses and protecting their customers.
Governments, nongovernmental organizations, and other businesses look to Deloitte for our knowledge, skills, and experience in tackling increasingly difficult economic, regulatory, and social issues. When Deloitte leaders and professionals share opinions on public policy and regulatory matters with decision makers, together, we advance economic growth and the social mobility of people worldwide.
Every day, Deloitte people are making a real impact in the places they live and work. From delivering pro bono support to nonprofits and helping young people develop employability skills, to strengthening communities in the wake of a disaster and driving measurement beyond GDP to tackle social challenges, Deloitte is focused on the issues that matter most.
Deloitte prides itself on doing not only what is good for clients, but also what is good for our people and the communities in which we live and work—always striving to be an organization that is held up as a role model of quality, integrity, and positive change.
