Press Release

Deloitte’s new joiner induction program took place in person this year, including a deep dive into the firm’s strategy and values as well as networking activities

Luxembourg, 18 October 2021: Deloitte Luxembourg welcomed 308 young professionals with 26 different nationalities to the firm, demonstrating its continued confidence in the future. The junior profiles, kick-starting their careers at the professional services firm of 2,300 employees, were greeted during special welcome days and then introduced to the firm’s corporate culture through an induction program between 5 and 15 October, at Deloitte’s premises and in Luxembourg city.

“Impactful human connection is a fundamental ingredient of our DNA and a key success of our business. Being able to physically meet our new joiners in a safe environment at DSquare was a great way to soak up Deloitte’s unique atmosphere. We will continue supporting our people’s development in an inclusive organizational culture to live by the Firm’s values, work collaboratively, and provide excellent service to our clients at all times,” states Stephan Tilquin, Partner and Talent leader at Deloitte Luxembourg.

A new way of onboarding

While 2020’s induction program was virtual, this year’s journey was adapted to the current sanitary situation, which allowed engaging introductory sessions, networking and teambuilding events to take place in person under the CovidCheck protocol. The kick-off event at DSquare, featuring interactive presentations by Managing Partner John Psaila, Talent leader Stephan Tilquin and the Sustainability and Diversity & Inclusion leaders Francesca Messini and Christian van Dartel was also livestreamed to allow new joiners to attend virtually. Moreover, the event included a motivational guest speech by entrepreneur and former skate professional Taïg Khris.

The induction program is a blended approach of in-person and virtual training sessions, including a digital journey via Deloitte’s AI-powered platform CURA that integrates learning into the daily workflow. Alongside technical and soft skills, the program fosters enduring human capabilities for the future. A fun city game and networking events allowed new joiners to bond across service lines and discover interesting facts about Luxembourg.

“Attracting the best talent has always been at the heart of our strategy at Deloitte. Our steadfast commitment to allow them to grow and build fulfilling careers is pivotal to ensure we remain the employer of choice for new generations and a partner of choice for our clients. This was underpinned again this year by Universum, in its yearly “World's Most Attractive Employers” ranking, which saw our global organization recognized as the preferred choice for students amongst all professional services firms,” states John Psaila, Managing Partner at Deloitte Luxembourg.

Deloitte recognized as one of the “World’s Most Attractive Employers”

For the 13th consecutive year, Deloitte featured in the 2021 “World's Most Attractive Employer” (WMAE) rankings, a list of the top 50 most desirable workplaces for students entering the workforce. Deloitte retained its position as the most attractive professional services employer overall, was named the top professional services firm in all three student categories of business, engineering and IT, and rose one spot to fourth overall for business students.
