This was a very informative and interesting visit, one initiative they were taking that I thought was interesting was trying to do away with "talent hubs" and instead trying to develop employees that excelled in all areas of business rather than just IT for example, they want to develop business consultants, not just technology consultants. They also seem to put a big emphasis on making sure their consultants are ready to work in a global workplace, which makes sense especially considering they have offices world-wide. I see this as a good way to set themselves apart from other firms, especially in India. They seem to put a lot of emphasis on employee retention and offering employees good benefits to keep talent in house, much like HCL. Thy have gone through a transformation and started to really listen to their clients, helping to create a much better overall client experience, this has proven to be very successful.
We were able to do a quick tour of the Deloitte facilities. The work environment for the employees was very nice, much better than a lot of offices I've worked in or currently work in. Initially I thought the working conditions would be cramped, crowded, and more undesirable, but I was happy to see that they were actually very nice.
