At Deloitte, the annual report doesn’t stop with a financial statement. The financial services firm also publishes a “Talent Annuity Report” to chronicle its year in benefits andefforts.
“We published a Talent Annuity Report because we regard our talent as an investment that generates an annuity,” said CEO Barry Salzberg, who called the document “a tangible manifestation of our passion and commitment to our talent.”
Over the past year, according to the report, the organization has:
- Broken ground on Deloitte University, a $300 million center where the company will offer training and personal and professional development opportunities.
- Rolled out its trademarked Mass Career Customization, a career development model that enables all Deloitte professionals to dial up and dial down their careers to fit their needs at various life stages.
- Launched a voluntary sabbatical program for employees to take up to six months of leave to engage in volunteering and other personal pursuits.
- Introduced a customized approach to talent development, with Deloitte professionals participating in 2.4 million learning hours.
- Achieved the 1,000-plus mark for women partners, principals and directors, a reflection of Deloitte’s hallmark Women’s Initiative.
- Earned a spot on more than a dozen national “best” lists for employee programs.
