Labor Rights: At DTT Member Firms 2006/2007
- People commitment survey : Approximately 107,000 Deloitte member firm professionals were invited to participate and 80 percent of them used the opportunity to be heard on a range of issues including compensation and benefits, work-life harmony, recognizing success, performance management and hiring and staffing. DTT reached an important milestone in FY07 when the average commitment index for all participating member firms increased from 74 to 75, accomplishing the goal of improving the index by one point every year.
- Member firms don't just listen to their people; they take action as a result. For example, Deloitte Belgium now offers coaching sessions for partners, emphasizing career guidance and quality conversations with people; work-life balance (including self-energy management) courses and broader offerings of non-technical skills programs. Performance management processes will also be reengineered as a result of issues raised during the survey.
- Deloitte UK has used the people commitment survey results to encourage employee dialogue, leading to greater understanding of people's needs, and as the basis for a Quality Conversations Toolkit, designed to encourage regular, honest and constructive feedback. Owing in part to the toolkit's impact, the firm's attrition rate decreased to 18 percent and Deloitte UK was ranked sixth among the Sunday Times "Best Big Companies" in 2007.
- On March 8, 2007, Deloitte member firms celebrated International Women's Day.
- Deloitte United States’ Women’s Initiative (WIN) *, launched in 1993, delivered 400 programs to 12,000 people in 2006, received nine major awards and was invited by 57 client firms to initiate or improve the execution of their WIN efforts. WIN’s effectiveness is demonstrated by the fact that Deloitte United States has the highest percentage (21 percent) of women partners, principals and directors among U.S. professional services firms.
- DTT's member firm in Australia conducted a firm-wide cultural diversity survey as a basis for defining the firm's cultural identity. More than 1,300 people from all levels of the organization responded. The survey revealed that the firm has more than 50 cultures represented.
- In June 2007, Chaly Mah, CEO Deloitte Singapore, was appointed regional managing partner and chief executive officer for the Asia Pacific region and a member of the DTT executive. This is the first time in Deloitte member firms' history that the regional managing partner has been appointed from within the Asia Pacific region and is considered a significant decision in recognition of the importance and capability of the region to Deloitte member firms and its contributions to the DTT network.
