Working globally to meet client and talent needs

Doing business across geographies is an essential part of Deloitte's client service work. For Deloitte, international experience—whether working overseas or collaborating on cross-border projects and teams—is a "must-have" to drive client, talent, and growth agendas.

When globally minded leaders and professionals are needed to advance member firm client projects, Deloitte deploys the right people to the right place at the right time. In FY2012, nearly 5,300 Deloitte member firm people were on international assignments—21 percent more than in FY2011.

Deloitte member firms take the same borderless approach to recruiting top talent. The Careers Website lets graduates, experienced professionals, and senior executives search and apply for opportunities in 116 Deloitte member firms and locations. In FY2012, more than 1.6 million people submitted applications via the site, and Deloitte hired 51,400, bringing the organization closer to its goal of 250,000 professionals by 2015.

By 2014, the percentage of companies that generate more than 30 percent of global revenue from emerging markets will increase by 82 percent. As companies increase business in these markets and grow internationally, it becomes imperative that they attract and develop diverse, globally minded talent.
