Deloitte Ranked Among Top 10 Employers by Working Mother for the 17th Year Running
Deloitte, one of the biggest accountancy firms in the world and a part of the Big 4 conglomeration, has announced that it has been ranked as one of the Top 10 employers by Working Mother magazine for the year 2010.
Working Mother came up with its list of the “100 Best Companies for Working Mothers,” recently. On this list, the magazine has ranked a pool of organizations that score high in such categories such as child care, flexibility, culture and leave of absence.
The magazine conducts this survey every year.
This is the 17th year that Deloitte has earned its ranking in the survey.
Working Mother cited that what impressed the judges were Deloitte’s innovative career-life strategies, which includes the Mass Career Customization program and its corporate lattice model. The former allow employees to “dial up” or “dial down” to fit their various life stages.
The magazine also praised Deloitte’s voluntary sabbatical program, which is basically an expansion of the life choices its employees are allowed to make.
This year Working Mother’s “100 Best” issue also featured Barry Salzberg, who is Deloitte’s Chief Executive Officer, in “CEO Lessons from the Top-Ten Companies” where he gave his insights on ways to retain talent by organizations.
Barbara Adachi, who is the leader of Deloitte’s Initiative for the Retention and Advancement of Women, said that at the time when organizations were cutting down on life choices and flexibility options of employees, Deloitte was actually strengthening itself in those sectors.
Adachi added: “We understand that successfully integrating career and life not only boosts morale and productivity, it is absolutely critical for high performance.”
Deloitte has got other accolades this year as a good employer, including the Catalyst Award.
