Week 1 Checkpoint: Deloitte & Touché Case Study Q1. How did the problem at Deloitte & Touché occur in the first place? A1. I believe the problem started because the company wasn’t invested in their employees. There was an obvious gap between the genders and that gap had been ignored. There was also a problem with retention because there seemed to be no room for advancement once you reached a certain level in the company. Q2. Did their changes fix the underlying problems? Explain. A2. The first thing they did to fix the problem was fix the networking and mentoring problem. They held a workshop that cost the company $3 million, but the monetary lose was nothing compared to the human capital that they gained. They increased their retention rate for women in the upper management positions and also taught the men that worked for the company to work with the women instead of shutting them out. They also created flexible working arrangements to help support the women who had issues with family issues related to work.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
