At Deloitte, we understand that our diversity is a key driver of our effectiveness in the market. Thats why, in FY2018, we re-committed to progressing our already strong culture of inclusion and increasing gender representation at all levels across Deloitte.
Our deeply embedded, ongoing initiatives to promote diversity and inclusion at Deloitte have proven effective.
- Deloitte member firms have adopted progressively advanced talent initiativesincluding workplace flexibility, and family leave and return-to-work policiesthat attract women, parents and employees of all generations.
- Many Deloitte member firms offer their people opportunities through global business resource groups (BRGs) to connect and build networks with others who share affinity indicators such as gender, race, religion and sexual orientation. Some member firms have also established councils that bridge gaps between single-identity workplace groups.
- Deloitte leaders in Australia, Canada, UK, US and other countries have been recognized externally for inclusion efforts and/or serve on boards of organizations that promote inclusion.
- Globally, Deloitte creates a safe work environment for all people through its strong policies against misconduct, inappropriate behavior or sexual harassment.
These are some of the significant reasons why Deloitte is recognized as a desirable workplace by organizations that include
Great Place to Work, LinkedIn, National Association of Female Executives (US), The Times (UK), Glassdoor.
While we are proud of the accolades we have earned and the policies and programs we have implemented, we understand that we must change as the market and world around us change. To lead in the areas of inclusion and diversity, we must achieve more. That is why we are focusing many of our current efforts on gender representation and why we will continue to seek and hire qualified women, provide ample developmental and promotional and leadership opportunities, and remain committed to fair pay for all.
At Deloitte | Taj, we understand that our diversity is a strength and a key driver for effectiveness in the market. That’s why we strive to make diversity and gender balance the norm in all parts of our organization.
We are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce where everyone feels a sense of belonging, is empowered to feel themselves without fear of bias or discrimination and is motivated and given opportunities to thrive at work. This can be achieved by providing a workplace culture that is built on a foundation of respect and appreciation for diversity in all its forms.
We’ve set ambitious aspirational goals and have developed consistent interventions spanning the entire career lifecycle. We also know that leadership needs to be accountable for delivering the change needed – gender diversity is high on the radar of our leadership team and is a regular agenda item. Building on some of the leading practices established in parts of our organization, we remain consistently focused on developing guidance and giving practical advice on interventions that we know are most effective in promoting gender equality.
Our long-term commitment to gender representation can be illustrated by past and present events and initiatives. In 2013, Taj and its previous managing partner, Gianmarco Monsellato, received the “Business Case of Action” reward during the Women’s Empowerment Principles Event. Organized by the U.N. and U.N. Women. This event was an opportunity to reward 5 international companies for their exemplarity in terms of gender equality and their actions in promoting diversity at all levels. A fair working environment is still in place today: the firm, now headed by Sophie Blégent-Delapille since 2016 and whose mandate’s has been renewed in 2020, counts more than 60% of women among its teams and 50 % of Taj’s Executive Committee are female.
As part of our participation in the national gender equality index, Taj has published an overall score of 87/100 for 2020, an indicator which has been in constant increase in the last 3 years.
As a Deloitte network entity, Taj is involved in Deloitte’s ALL IN diversity and inclusion strategy. An initiative that is focused not only on ensuring that all Deloitte people live the organization’s values and understand the importance of an inclusive culture empowered by inclusive leadership, but also on designing and implementing specific interventions designed to achieve Deloitte’s diversity goals.
Providing an inclusive culture for all Deloitte| Taj people is a long-term commitment. Our firm is dedicated to supporting and empowering all of its practitioners and professionals to achieve their full potential, and to delivering our purpose to make an impact that matters, each and every day. And while we are proud of the diversity and inclusion culture we have implemented, we understand that, as the world change, we must continue to seek for more.
