Consulting Firm Deloitte Marks Tenth Year on Fortune’s "100 Best Companies to Work For" List

For the tenth year, Deloitte has been named to FORTUNE magazine's list of "100 Best Companies to Work For." The annual survey, which appears in the February 2 issue of FORTUNE and on, is the national benchmark that lists employers who consistently raise the bar on talent initiatives and corporate culture improvement for all employees.

"We are proud to once again be among FORTUNE's 100 Best again this year," said Barry Salzberg, chief executive officer, Deloitte LLP. "Keeping the needs of our most precious asset - our people - a top priority is one of the things that sets Deloitte apart."

Deloitte's leading talent initiatives include:

  • Mass Career Customization (TM) - a tool that allows all Deloitte professionals to dial up and dial down in their careers to suit their personal needs while advancing in the organization.
  • A state-of-the art learning and leadership development center that will enable Deloitte professionals to meet, learn and develop the next generation of business leaders.
  • D Street - a virtual networking site where professionals can find and connect with each other across the organization and share information about themselves and the work they do.

The FORTUNE list of "100 Best Companies to Work for in America" pays tribute to the companies that excel in motivating employees and helping them manage their personal and professional lives. Of the more than 1,000 organizations contacted, 253 of them participated in this year's survey. Nearly 81,000 employees at those organizations responded to a survey created by the Great Place to Work Institute, a global research and consulting firm. The employees are asked a variety of questions about credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie. Employee opinions factored heavily in the decision process for the list, as two-thirds of the company's score was weighted on responses from randomly selected employees.
