Connect for Impact

Our purpose is to make an impact that matters on our clients, our people and society. To reach our strategic goal by 2023, our purpose is fully embedded in our daily business.

Purpose is at the heart of how we take decisions and how we deliver projects. It is at the center of how we interact, how we make our voice heard in society, and how we operate our own business responsibly.

We believe purpose and profit go hand-in-hand. We can impact clients to become more resilient, successful and responsible, offer engaging work to people, contribute to society, and be profitable at the same time. Projects that help clients transition to more responsible business models are a great example of creating an impact. 

How do we make an impact on clients?

Client impact is about ensuring that we connect our skills and services across a broad range of industry sectors and functional domains, to work on our clients’ most critical, complex challenges and that our work continues to be of consistent high quality, every single day. We want to be top of mind when clients need help to become more resilient and responsible. They face major transformations, for example in the areas of technology, sustainability and reporting, where we bring in capabilities from across our businesses and industries.

How do we make an impact on society?

We want to play an active role in building a more responsible and resilient society in the Netherlands. We do this primarily by the client projects we engage in, and besides that we continue to make an impact through the Deloitte Impact Foundation. We grow our impact on society through our client work by being even more selective in the types of clients we work for and the engagements we perform.

How do we make an impact on people?

We continue to provide our people with opportunities for personal growth and development. Our Employee Value Proposition is designed to provide a career that is personalised and meaningful. This not only serves our goals but also enables our people to excel and be happy in their profession, contribute to their communities, and become the next generation of leaders in and outside Deloitte.

We will step up our approach to provide an inclusive workplace and leverage the diversity of our talent. Different people, different skills, and different perspectives combined to create value through the diversity of thought. This is a business imperative. And it is the right thing to do.

How do we operate our business? 

When we talk to clients about doing business more responsibly, this also raises the bar for our own business: we want to practice what we preach.

To engrain sustainability in the DNA of Deloitte and empower our partners and people to become true sustainability ambassadors, we have created an approach that is aimed at reducing our negative operational impacts and maximizing the positive ones.
