Deloitte announces talent initiatives

Deloitte in the US has announced the release of its fiscal year 2010 Talent Annuity Report, a one-of-a-kind report dedicated to talent and talent initiatives. Both a reflection on the past year and a preview of what's to come, the interactive report presents a candid view of Deloitte's people and the talent strategies that enable Deloitte to attract, engage and retain a diverse and highly skilled workforce.

"We published a Talent Annuity Report because we regard our talent as an investment that generates an annuity," said Barry Salzberg, chief executive officer, Deloitte LLP. "We take pride in the contents of the report -- it is a tangible manifestation of our passion and commitment to our talent. Our people are vital to the continued growth of our business, and we are focused on fostering a quality culture where everyone has the opportunity to reach their fullest potential."

Titled "Inextricably Linked," the report illustrates three mutually reinforcing attributes that characterize Deloitte's signature Talent Experience: high performance, growth and development and career-life fit.

"The Deloitte Talent Experience is our commitment to delivering excellence to our people," said Cathy Benko, chief talent officer, Deloitte LLP. "As a corporate lattice organization, we recognize the increasingly diverse needs of our workforce and are providing a customized workplace with more options for how our work gets done, how careers are built and how participation is fostered."

The report chronicles a year of bold talent initiatives and historical milestones including:

-- Groundbreaking of Deloitte University, a $300 million state-of-the-art center established to foster personal and professional growth at Deloitte

-- Company-wide rollout of Mass Career Customization, a career development model that enables all Deloitte professionals to dial up and dial down their careers to fit their needs at various life stages

-- Launch of a voluntary sabbatical program for employees to take up to six months leave to engage in volunteering and other personal pursuits

-- Presentation of Deloitte's cutting-edge corporate lattice business strategy in a new book titled "The Corporate Lattice: Achieving High Performance in the Changing World of Work"

-- Introduction of a customized approach to talent development with Deloitte professionals participating in 2.4 million learning hours

-- Achievement of the 1000+ mark for women partners, principals and directors -- a reflection of Deloitte's hallmark Women's Initiative and commitment to an inclusive environment.

-- Recognition from more than a dozen national organizations, including the No.1 ranking on BusinessWeek's "Best Places to Launch a Career" list
