At Deloitte, we not only work hard but also play hard! In addition to annual leave, medical and dental benefits that we offer, we understand that attracting the highest caliber talent means offering an exciting job and a work/life balance through our various initiatives.
U@Deloitte is a wellness program designed to achieve better work-life harmonization for our employees. This new approach of integrating work and social activities include the following initiatives:
Eatz@Deloitte: In conjunction with ‘Eat With Your Family Day’, Deloitte employees were granted early leave from work to eat dinner with their families.
Compete@Deloitte: An inter-departmental Olympic style competition spanning across two months, where different departments battle it out across different sports to win gold.
Kidz@Deloitte: This initiative is part of a series of family oriented days organized to help our employees strike a balance between work and family. Our employees are invited to bring their children to work to help the little ones understand where their parents work and learn more about what their parents do.
Play@Deloitte: This initiative encourages participation through sports activities, such as CPA games where we compete with the other Big Four Accountancy firms in a variety of sports.
Run@Deloitte: As part of Deloitte’s ongoing commitment to supporting a healthy lifestyle in the firm, Deloitte participated in the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge this year with 470 of our employees running the race.
Work@Deloitte: focuses on helping our staff meet their personal and professional commitments through a number of programs including the work from home scheme, flexible working hours, reduced work portfolio scheme, flexible maternity leave scheme and a family group support.
“For me, the part time arrangement was very satisfying, as it gives me the chance to spend some ‘work day’ hours at home attending to the needs and development of my children, as well as maintain the client and office contacts that I have grown accustomed to enjoy…..The part time work arrangement gives me a true work-life balance that works well for me.” – Monica Carran, Senior Manager, Tax, Reduced work portfolio scheme
Annual Dinner & Dance
Every year we celebrate with an annual themed dinner and dance for the entire firm. This year our Dinner & Dance took us on a whirlwind journey through different countries. Held at Resorts World Sentosa with the theme “Around the World in four hours,” the night included a Gangnam Style performance from the new partners that were admitted in FY2012, performances from each department, games – including re-enacting Bollywood dance scenes, awards for the best dressed and many other activities. In previous years we’d have other fun themes such as “Back to school” and “Casino Royale”.
Deloitte Recreational Club
Deloitte Recreational Club
The “Rec Club” was established so that the employees of the firm can play an active role in organizing exciting and entertaining social and sports activities for the entire firm as well as their friends and families. Throughout the year, members enjoy special events and discounts exclusively available to them. We organize corporate roadshows where companies including the biggest banks, telecommunication companies and major shopping brands come in and offer special discounts in our office – enabling you to enjoy the benefits of working for one of the biggest firms in Singapore.
Some of our highlights in 2012 include:
- The annual Carnival@Deloitte staff party themed ‘Get Wild,’ took place at Azzura Beach Club in Sentosa with over 800 people attending. Different activity stations were available, including a mechanical rodeo bull, an inflatable Gladiator ring, complementary manicures, pedicures and massage services along with free food and drinks in the sun.
- Along with other accountancy firms in Singapore, Deloitte takes part in the CPA games every year. Our teams regularly bring home the gold medals - including our famous table tennis team who has won gold 14 years in a row!
- Regular movie nights with premieres of the blockbusters at a special discounted price for our Rec Club members and their friends/family.
- Annual Staff vs. Management soccer event takes place in December every year and pits our staff against the partners and managers of the firm.
