How does a company retain its talent in the face of a new landscape?
Deloitte’s “The Women’s Initiative”
The Women’s Initiative (WIN) which was launched in 1993 by Deloitte LLP is an Initiative for the Retention and Advancement of Women.
The Business Case
“We see attracting, retaining, and developing women as a business imperative to fuel our growth. Women represent a growing proportion of a shrinking pool of talent, and a growing number of decision-makers in our client organizations are women. We have found that creating a culture where the best women choose to be creates an organization where the bestpeople want to be. The workforce is changing. We cannot sustain our growth without attracting, developing, and retaining talented women to serve our clients and grow”.
Innovative Programs and Workshops
“In 2007 we focused on a number of innovative programs that will improve our talent and growth strategies for years to come. After a successful pilot, MassCareer Customization™ was made available to 20 percent of our U.S.-based professionals. This year it will be extended to the rest of the organization as we embrace the concept of the corporate lattice™, which gives all of our people greater career flexibility”.
