The Deloitte Way programme was launched in 2005 to embody the firm’s culture and values, and encourage staff to incorporate these values in their everyday behaviours, which were aligned to the firm’s strategy.
A cutting edge system was built to enable every Southern African Deloitte employee to access the Deloitte Way staff engagement and recognition programme as well as to nominate anyone in the firm they felt was proudly living the Deloitte Way.
Our Deloitte Way staff engagement and recognition programme enables each member of Deloitte Southern Africa to nominate any of their colleagues across the Southern African firm.
Each nomination requires a motivation which acts as feedback and initial recognition to the person being nominated. 20 860 nominations were made in 2010 and 21 579 in 2011.
In addition to recognising our staff, the Deloitte Way programme also enables the firm’s leaders to engage with all staff, and staff to engage with the firm’s leadership, on strategic issues.
The strategy is focused on building value for our clients and making Deloitte a magnet for top talent, attracting and retaining people. The strategic drivers of the Deloitte Way programme and the behaviours it encourages are listed below:
The firm successfully launched the new Deloitte Way site on 1 September 2011. The new site was simultaneously launched with a Deloitte Way Talent competition. The end result from the Talent competition was the recording of our own Deloitte Way song, which was written by a Deloitte employee and sung by our own Deloitte employees from across Southern Africa - a first ever for Deloitte.
