In today’s world, it is no longer acceptable for businesses to sit on the sidelines. Companies must engage with the communities in which employees live and work. Employees are more passionate than ever about being responsible citizens, and have strong expectations of the organizations at which they work. And in today’s war for talent, meeting these expectations is imperative.
In Deloitte member firms around the world, people are committed to change and look to the organization to support them in their community efforts, large and small. As John Connolly, DTT Chairman notes, "Our people just demand it. They demand that this is a business priority. They demand that we play our part financially, but in other ways. It’s the right thing for all business to play their part in the overall corporate responsibility agenda."
