Deloitte’s commitment to veterans and inclusion
At Deloitte, we foster an inclusive culture where all leaders thrive, and we’re proud to support armed forced members and veterans and their families. So when President Obama challenged American businesses to lead the charge in getting 100,000 unemployed veterans and their spouses hired and trained by the end of this year, former CEO Joe Echevarria pledged that Deloitte would lead from the front and embrace veterans. To support the White House’s Joining Forces initiative, we committed to set a goal of doubling our veteran hiring numbers over the next three years.
To help facilitate the transition for armed forces members and veterans from military service to workforce re-entry, Deloitte is hosting the CORE Leadership Program and increasing the number of Deloitte Day Open Houses for veterans. Deloitte will continue to support our veterans and armed forces members in a variety of other ways as well, which includes sponsoring events and programs such as the Warrior Games.
Deloitte strives to be the professional services organization where the brightest and most talented leaders want to be. The backgrounds and experiences of our people are as diverse as our business offerings, and we rely on the rich, varied experiences of our people to help shape the quality of service to our clients. Transitioning armed forces members and veterans bring invaluable skills, knowledge, experience, and insights that further enrich the diversity of our teams.
