Deloitte listed in ‘25 Best Big Companies To Work For’
3 March 2015
Deloitte has been listed as one of The Sunday Times’ ’25 Best Big Companies To Work For’. The firm also collected a special award for Innovation in Engagement Practice for its Time Out programme.
Time Out enables Deloitte employees to take a four-week block of unpaid leave each year. It is part of Deloitte’s WorkAgility initiative, through which the firm provides its people with the ability to be agile in terms of how, when and where they work.
Emma Codd, Managing Partner for Talent at Deloitte, said: “I am delighted that Deloitte has been recognised as one of the ’25 Best Big Companies To Work For’ at the Sunday Times awards. The recognition for our Time Out programme through the special award underpins the relentless focus that we have placed on WorkAgility over the past year.
“In simple terms, we have worked hard to ensure that we provide a working environment where our people can balance a successful career with their daily lives, whether that be for family commitments or other outside interests. Time Out allows our people to take a meaningful period of time to spend outside the work-place – no reason is required, and our people are encouraged to share the benefits of the experience when they return. At Deloitte, we know that our people expect to work for an employer that can offer a balance between career and life and we have worked hard to provide this.”
