Wellbeing @ Deloitte

In line with our Shared Values, we recognise that the wellbeing of our people is paramount. We aim to create a psychologically safe working environment where Deloitte professionals can unlock their full potential, make an impact that matters, and function optimally at work and on a personal level.

We understand that as the world evolves, so does the wellbeing of our people. With this in mind, we will continue to redefine and design inclusive wellness offerings to suit our Deloitte professionals’ needs.

Employee Wellbeing Programme

Our Employee Wellbeing Programme is committed to creating a culture where we take care of each other, where Deloitte professionals have a sense of belonging and are supported to be their absolute best. 


Our holistic approach to wellbeing is grounded in the following three pillars:

Our people are encouraged to look after their bodies to promote longevity, maintain good health and enjoy an energised lifestyle.

We aim to enhance the emotional resilience of our people, nurture creativity and to help Deloitte professionals to consistently be the best and most authentic version of themselves.

We encourage and inspire our people to discover their reason for being and make meaningful contributions at work and in their communities. 

Our in-house Deloitte wellness offerings include:

  • Facilitated educational wellness webinars to re-enforce positive behaviours and empower our people to take positive actions and function optimally in their work and personal lives.
  • Opportunities for unstructured downtime and connection including mental wellbeing reboot days, which is offered to all Deloitte professionals, to take at a time that works best for them between October and December.
  • On-site canteens with healthy meal options across certain offices.
  • Wellness days to support employee health and wellbeing and provide access to relevant information. The following initiatives have been implemented as part of our wellness days:
    • Annual flu vaccinations
    • Vitamin B-shot drives
    • Blood donation drives
    • Bone barrow drives
    • Regular health awareness campaigns.

Employee support networks

As part of our continued efforts to cultivate an inclusive culture, we have established tailored support networks to guide the firm in implementing impactful and sustainable wellness and inclusion interventions. These include:

Our network of wellbeing warriors aims to weave well-being into our daily lives through building a community of passionate individuals who are committed to taking care of each other and seeing a positive change in our individual and collective wellbeing. 

Our disability and neurodiversity advisory group is a network of individuals with relevant lived experiences who are involved in driving actions around disability and neurodiversity inclusion through learning and engagement.

The purpose of the network is for our LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bi, trans and more) professionals to feel supported and confident in being who they are and empowered to thrive.

The purpose of the EEDI network is to promote fair and equal opportunities, eliminate unfair discrimination and foster diversity and inclusion across the firm.
