American Society for Training & Development (ASTD) Award
Simply the BEST: Deloitte recognized among the best companies for learning
The American Society for Training & Development (ASTD) has honored Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu with a prestigious BEST Award for 2009. In the words of ASTD, the award recognizes organizations that “leverage the learning function as a strategic business tool to achieve enterprise-wide success; [those that] create, support, and champion learning opportunities for results and a learning culture.”
An awards ceremony was held on October 1 in Washington, D.C. with Bill Pelster, national director, Talent Development, Deloitte Services LP; and Roger Wadsworth, partner Global Learning & Talent Development, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, along with several leaders of the Deloitte U.S. Talent Development team on hand to accept the award.
Bill Pelster remarked, “One reason this award is particularly meaningful for an organization like Deloitte is our direct and unbroken link between our success in developing our professionals and our success in serving our clients. The quality of our people is the only value we have to offer the marketplace, so we are squarely focused on development solutions that will lead to meaningful outcomes for our clients as well as our people. I couldn’t be more thrilled that we’ve been recognized in this way.”
