Deloitte Named One of Top 50 Community-Minded Companies by Points of Light for Second Consecutive Year
SEATTLE, WA, July 12, 2017 — Deloitte has been recognized by Points of Light, one of the world’s largest organizations dedicated to volunteer service, as part of this year’s Civic 50, Points of Light’s list of the most community-minded companies in the United States. The Civic 50 sets a national standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, skills and other resources to improve quality of life in the communities where they do business. This year’s Civic 50 winners were announced at the Points of Light Conference on Volunteering and Service in Seattle, where leaders in volunteerism and civic engagement gathered to discuss how social innovation, cross-sector collaboration and citizen engagement can drive change.
“At Deloitte, we foster a culture of purpose and are committed to leveraging our knowledge and the skills of our people to make an impact that matters in the communities where we live and work,” said Doug Marshall, corporate citizenship managing director, Deloitte LLP. “We believe that collaboration — among government, corporate and social sectors — is a critical component to addressing the tough problems facing society and achieving collective impact. We are honored to be recognized for the second time as part of the Civic 50.”
Deloitte encourages its professionals to make a meaningful impact in their communities year-round through collaboration with and support of nonprofit organizations via pro bono services, workplace giving and volunteerism. On June 9, Deloitte professionals in 80-plus cities across the country worked on more than 1,000 community service projects as part of Impact Day, Deloitte’s annual day of service. Impact Day is held at the start of Deloitte’s fiscal year because it’s a top priority for the organization, and all Impact Day projects are created, led and executed by Deloitte professionals.
The Civic 50 winners are amongst a group of public and private companies with U.S. operations and revenues of $1 billion or more. Winners are selected based on four dimensions of their U.S. community engagement program: investment, integration, institutionalization and impact.
“In the fifth year of honoring the most community-minded companies in the nation, The Civic 50 truly highlights the commitment to community and civic engagement of America’s leading brands. This year’s honorees contributed more than $1.4 billion and 10.1 million volunteer hours in their communities around the country,” said Jennifer Lawson, president of networks at Points of Light. “Encouraged by calls for responsible citizenship from shareholders, employees and customers — but also driven by a desire to build trust and define their brands — Civic 50 companies are putting communities at the center of business.”
