Small teams of volunteers will bring their skills and hands-on support to more than 150 not-for-profit organisations and schools as part of Deloitte’s global IMPACT Day November 16.Cindy Hook, Deloitte National Leader Assurance and Advisory and the firm’s Executive sponsor of the event believes one of the most exciting things about IMPACT Day is the chance to connect with charitable organisations and schools across Australia and ask them ‘How can we help make an impact for you?’
“From this feedback we have organised volunteers to do everything from assisting organisations in formalising their business plans, developing apps, building websites to planting trees and judging talent shows.
“IMPACT Day demonstrates our people’s commitment to society and, importantly, helps define our Deloitte culture. It inspires Deloitte people around the world to get involved in shared global challenges and to make a difference first-hand,” she said.
Deloitte Australia will be part of a global thrust, with about 50,000 Deloitte people across 60 countries volunteering their time and skills to serve the communities in which they live and work.
