New Year, New Resolutions 2015 trends and our focus areas within social impact Presented by Deloitte Corporate Citizenship
As we start off 2015, we’re thinking about our Citizenship objectives. We’re focusing on areas where we think we can have impact. Here are our five resolutions for 2015. Join us online to share yours with us. New Year, New Resolutions
Resolution 1: Do more skills-based volunteerism Pro bono work and skills-based volunteerism enable professionals to drive lasting societal impact on the issues that matter most to our communities and to our clients. We are focusing on skills-based volunteerism and pro bono this year to provide up-and-coming professionals with leadership roles and opportunities, helping them elevate their careers and satisfaction at work while also offering further opportunities to connect with our clients and the issues they care about.
Resolution 2: Step up for education Engaging with students can help them build brighter futures. By building their confidence, inspiring leadership and fostering trust, we believe students can see their potential. This year, through RightStep, we’re focused on helping education organizations with a proven track-record of success operate more effectively and efficiently so more students can persist through high school and college and transition successfully into a career.
Resolution 3: Create more opportunities for veterans The U.S. Veterans population is currently above 20 million and will stay at those levels through the next decade – each year 250,000 men and women in the U.S. transition from military careers. This year, we are furthering our commitment to helping veterans make a successful transition to the civilian sector. We’re helping equip veterans with the skills to succeed through our three pillars of support: Education, Employment, and Health and Recovery as well as through our signature programs, pro bono, and nonprofit relationships.
Resolution 4: Collaborate more with others No single organization (or person) has all of the answers but together, we can drive change in our communities. The strengths and skills of Deloitte professionals enable us to lead in this area by engaging our clients and our communities in how to best make a positive societal impact. We’re focusing this year on facilitating collaboration between government, nonprofits, and business to address tough societal challenges, accelerate social innovation, and invest in the skills and experience of our people.
Resolution 5: Increase engagement Our people overwhelming want to participate in the community and they’re looking for effective ways to do so. This year, we’re focused on making it easier for our people to engage in meaningful volunteer opportunities, deepen our relationship with signature nonprofits in our issue areas, connect to clients in the community, and build a culture of purpose.
