Work where you want, says Deloitte

Big 4 firm Deloitte is giving its 20,000 UK staff the ultimate choice about where they work.

Deloitte’s CEO Richard Houston has gone on record as saying all of its UK people will be able to choose when, where and how they work in the future, once it is safe to do so.

Deloitte says that it has long championed agile working, and has allowed extended flexible working since 2014. Yet, while less than half of the firm’s UK workforce worked from home on a regular basis pre-COVID-19, the pandemic has accelerated Deloitte’s hybrid working model. It opened all its offices on 17 May 2021.

EY recently told its 17,000 staff they can expect to be working from home for at least two days a week after the pandemic. The other Big 4 firms have very announced similar policies to EY, meaning Deloitte is offering its staff something different!
