Deloitte Recruits Employees by Focusing on Volunteerism

On April 17th, Deloitte partnered with United Way Capital Area to host a volunteer day for prospective employees from the University of Texas at Austin. 140 students and employees worked on projects across Austin impacting community educational, financial stability, and health needs. Students saw firsthand Deloitte’s culture of sharing time and talent with the community and made a meaningful impact. United Way was proud to help manage this important effort in partnership with Deloitte.

Walter Powell, a Partner in Deloitte’s Austin Audit group, kicks off the event.

As part of United Way Capital Area’s Hands On Central Texas work, volunteer project management helps corporations leverage limited resources by working with United Way staff in the design, preparation, and implementation of large-scale volunteer projects.

The outcomes speak for themselves: students and employees had a meaningful volunteer experience, Deloitte showcased its commitment to supporting employee volunteerism, and most of all, Central Texas was better off at the end of the day.
