Life at Deloitte
Do inspired people come up with great ideas? Or do great ideas inspire people? At Deloitte, the questions are not mutually exclusive. Our network is committed to helping its people reach their full leadership potential—confident that their professional experiences will spark innovations that motivate others.
New ideas are valued across Deloitte’s member firms; the best ones are funded, cultivated, and allowed to mature. Deloitte UK, for example, has a program to create and grow new businesses based on the ideas of its people, backed by a budget of up to US$39.3 million. Deloitte Canada’s search for ground-breaking ideas offers a winning team a cash prize and up to US$160,000 in seed money to implement its concept. At Deloitte Brazil, 18 innovative projects were submitted by local professionals and received investments to be developed; five of these projects are new solutions to go to market. And 20 cross-industry, marketable ideas have been created for development within the Deloitte US Technology Consulting practice through the StartUp Deloitte program.
"Throughout our network, Deloitte has more than 220,000 bright and creative people who understand their clients and their markets. This deep insight is also a wellspring of innovative ideas. We owe it to Deloitte professionals and clients to invest in the most impactful ones,” says Frank Vettese, Managing Partner and Chief Executive, Deloitte Canada. “And to ensure our continued market leadership, we must also invest in the people who generate those ideas.”
“Deloitte people aspire to make an impact that matters, and in return, they expect opportunities to build leadership capabilities, develop new skills and be challenged each and every day through the work they do and the talented professionals they work with,” adds Margot Thom, Deloitte Global Chief Talent Officer. “As an organization, Deloitte is dedicated to creating an experience that allows its people to thrive and grow.”
