“Our annual IMPACT Day is just one way our commitment to service extends beyond business and into the community.” – Joe Echevarria, CEO of Deloitte
Friday, June 7 marked the 14th Deloitte IMPACT Day, an annual event where Deloitte closes its doors and every employee heads out into the community to give back. The day is a true testament to Deloitte’s commitment to volunteering, and our Hands On Central Texas program has been proud to partner with Deloitte on this day for the past four years in Austin, this year helping 300 local employees connect to meaningful projects.
This day of service is a cornerstone of Deloitte’s Impact Imperative: a strong company’s corporate culture of professionals who contribute their time, innovative thinking and specialized business-sense to drive measurable change.
“At Deloitte, we pride ourselves on providing high-value, quality services to our clients and the capital markets, and we apply this same approach to service within our communities. As we’ve seen lately, when the private and public sectors collaborate, we can make a real and lasting impact,” said Joe Echevarria, chief executive officer, Deloitte LLP. “Our annual IMPACT Day is just one way our commitment to service extends beyond business and into the community. At its core, IMPACT Day is about making our communities and our country stronger.”
To make Austin greater, Deloitte employees landscaped and gardened, helped students work on their resumes and interviewing skills, painted inspirational quotes and helped makeover the teacher’s lounge – all at Mendez Middle School, a campus served by our Target Graduation program. Employees connected to projects with six other local organizations, including the Capital Area Food Bank, Keep Austin Beautiful and SafePlace, and also held several workshops for nonprofits that engaged more than 30 organizations.
