A story that matters

We believe that we’re only as good as the good we do.

All the facts and figures that talk to our size and diversity and years of history, as notable and important as they may be, are secondary to the truest measure of Deloitte: The impact we make in the world.

So, when people ask, “What’s different about Deloitte?” the answer resides in the many specific examples of where we have helped Deloitte member firm clients, our people, and sections of society to achieve remarkable goals, solve complex problems, or make meaningful progress. Deeper still, it’s in the beliefs, behaviours, and fundamental sense of purpose that underpin all that we do.

With more than 150 years of hard work and commitment to making a real difference, our organisation has grown in scale and diversity—approximately 245000 people in 150 countries and territories, providing audit and assurance, tax, legal, risk and financial advisory and consulting services—yet our shared culture remains the same.

Firm Overview:

With over 150 years of hard work and commitment to making a real difference, our organisation has grown in scale and diversity—approximately 245000 people in 150 countries, providing audit, tax, legal, financial advisory, enterprise risk, and consulting services—yet our shared culture remains the same.

For us, good isn’t good enough. We aim to be the best at all that we do—to help clients realise their ambitions; to make a positive difference in society; and to maximise the success of our people. This drive fuels the commitment and humanity that run deep through our every action.

That’s what makes us truly different at Deloitte. Not how big we are, where we are, nor what services we offer. What really defines us is our drive to make an impact that matters in the world.

Antonius Herbers

Antonius Herbers is our exclusively recommended Assurance Services expert in Germany on the Advisory Excellence website. If you need assistance in this area, please contact Antonius directly using the contact details listed above.

Antonius is the Office Managing Partner within Audit & Assurance at BDO’s Lübeck office.

BDO is an international network of public accounting, tax and advisory firms which perform professional services under the name of BDO. For the year ended 30 September 2021 BDO announced a total combined fee income of more than US$ 11 billion, representing a year on year growth of 10.8% . BDO public accounting, tax and advisory firms provide professional services in 164 countries, with 95,414 people working out of 1,713 offices worldwide.

This is the very essence of BDO, because people’s dreams matter to us.

Our motivation is to help people get to where they want to be – whether that’s our colleagues, our clients or in the communities we are part of.

BDO has a clearly stated purpose – our WHY – which makes BDO unique. It puts into words why BDO exists and is our global organisation’s fundamental reason for being, what defines us.

As BDO continues to grow in reach, headcount and revenue, our WHY shapes how we work with our clients, support our colleagues and help our communities succeed. It helps us make better decisions for ourselves and for all our stake­holders, individually and as a global organisation.

What can you do to bring our WHY to life?

  • Be proud of our WHY ! It’s why BDO exists and it defines how we are different
  • Think about how you can demonstrate our WHY in how you behave
  • Look around you: celebrate and support your colleagues in living the WHY
  • Be willing to commit time to getting involved in your firm’s WHY activities

Purpose-driven organisations do better. They are more ambitious, they attract and retain the right talent, they inspire innovation and are able to make faster decisions. Crucially, they are more trusted. Why? Because they know exactly why they do what they do, and who they are doing it for.

Firm Overview:

The best reason to choose BDO isn’t our service offerings, though they are among the most extensive in our industry. It isn’t our resources, though they are among the broadest in the world. It isn’t that we possess experience working with virtually every business sector in Canada, or that we offer the highest standards of technical excellence, though we do.

Ultimately, the best reason to choose BDO comes down to the relationships we build with our clients and communities. Because at the end of the day, ours is a business of people working with, for, and in the service of others. And when you think about it that way, client service becomes more than just client service; it becomes a firm-wide dedication to helping the people we serve succeed – whatever they need, wherever they are, however we can.
