DTTL’s Shared Values and Ethical Principles prescribe that all interaction between DTTL and its member firms and their employees, as well as interaction among DTTL and member firm employees, must be characterized by integrity, trust, and mutual respect. DTTL and its member firms regularly conduct anonymous people commitment surveys to lend a voice to employees through which to communicate with leadership. Results are collected, analyzed, and followed up on in each department and problems are addressed in a constructive manner. In addition, as part of the implementation of DTTL's Ethical Principles, member firms have put procedures in place to address employee grievances.
DTTL’s Shared Values and Ethical Principles also include non-discrimination and inclusion as integral parts of the way the organization works. While DTTL member firms are united by this vision of inclusion, DTTL respectfully recognizes that implementation of related programs will be shaped by local and national cultures. Where appropriate, DTTL member firms also address non-discrimination and inclusion in the community. DTTL’s Excellence Model helps guide member firms so that professional performance and promotions are managed in a fair and transparent manner. Also, ongoing training and education helps member firm professionals develop the skills necessary to work cross-culturally.
