An Insider's view of Deloitte Digital

How does your team reward individual success?

Rewards and recognition awards are given to individuals and teams who make outstanding contributions above and beyond the expectations of their roles. Also, practitioners are "spotlighted". This could be a weekly showcasing of how a team won a new pursuit or demonstrating a new solution or product. This is a great way to build your network!
