Anti-human trafficking

A commitment to social impact and helping end modern slavery

The Deloitte Government and Public Services Anti-Human Trafficking team convenes, advises, and delivers services to public and private sector entities to reduce human trafficking and provide dignified support to survivors.

The challenge

Human trafficking is an increasingly illicit enterprise, and it’s estimated that there are 40.3 million slaves globally.1

Why we’re committed

A strong relationship exists between the force for good through societal programs, such as ending human trafficking, and effective business strategies. It’s not just the right thing to do, it’s the smart thing for our business, our communities, and our people.

  • Our core values: Citizenship drives measurable change in our communities and inspires our actions as societal change makers.
  • Our clients: As more businesses are moving toward a sustainable business model and considering the triple bottom line—people, planet, and profit—Deloitte is one step ahead, offering clients insight and solutions to combat human trafficking within their operations. Driven by accelerating connectivity, new talent models, and cognitive tools, work is changing. We must consider all members of our society, such as survivors of human trafficking, in how we recruit, develop, and retain the workforce of the future.
  • Our people: As a social impact issue, anti-human trafficking is important to our professionals, who are concerned with working for companies that promote an ethos of “doing good is good business.”

Deloitte offers a unique combination of capabilities and experience from across functions and industries, including due diligence, data analytics, training and awareness, strategy and innovation, supply chain, change management, information management, and process improvement.

Awards and recognition

Consulting® magazine awarded Deloitte Consulting LLP with the Excellence in Social & Community Investments Award for its pro bono work with the Global Fund to End Modern Slavery (GFEMS). The award honors organizations for working with nonprofits, government entities, associations, and private and public sector companies in either a pro bono, discounted, or volunteer basis for the greater good. Deloitte collaborated with GFEMS to build an actionable approach for the budding nonprofit, entitled “Kickstarting Growth,” intended to serve as a guidebook with insights and strategies to accelerate the startup’s progress. By developing this strategic path forward for GFEMS, Deloitte enabled the nonprofit to shift from a startup model to a more impactful and sustainable organization, one that is equipped with the necessary tools to set measurable goals to disrupt the global business of slavery.
