“Facing complaints from staff over inappropriate working practices such as communicating aggressively and making employees attend extremely early meetings” umm 🤦🏻‍♂️

likefunny

So now scheduling early meetings is considered bullying? Yeah, that makes sense.

To be fair, what REALLY constitutes verbal harassment amongst British people? I assume she just gave a disappointed eyebrow raise while sipping some tea once?

Haha I enjoyed this. Personally, as a Brit, I think it would have to be pretty bad! We’re not quite as woke as the states yet and don’t get bank for suing people in the UK... so without any further knowledge at all, I’d say she must have been a proper b*tch. Could be wrong...

Ex Deloitte U.K. here - place is saturated with bullying from the top down, a number of partners in my old department have been fired or let go so the place is poison. Secondly, there’s no way she was thrown out for early meetings or bad emails, they cover that up nicely over at big D - she had to have done something pretty serious for them to tell her to get out.

Dealing with a real piece of work in that office now. Cannot stand having to deal with this person. Makes sense why I think this person is such an a-hole.

like

Never had to deal with her personally and the accusations sound pretty light and at face value not warranting such an overreaction, but for people at Deloitte UK to actually raise formal complaints, the behaviour must have been bad - like 6am calls and serious verbal harassment. And I suppose anything less than ideal behaviour would always be criticised if coming from the Chief People Officer

Makes sense especially if you think of the threshold a junior has to raise a complaint against a senior. Juniors tend to let A LOT of things slide.

Seems like the UK office has been in the news a lot lately. FWIW, each country is run as a different member firm (with some exceptions), so while embarrassing it doesn't necessarily speak to culture in the US or other countries.

The brand damage is there though. It’s difficult to convince clients it’s only Deloitte across borders for work quality but not harassment claims. If each country is managed differently and the brand is independent, they should just use different names right?

Not related to this but the whole inclusion movement seems to me more of a CYA exercise. At my firm there was this notorious SM who we all hated. He once said that the women in the pnw office are too opinionated and blatantly made racist jokes. I took it up to the diversity officer once, and she told me that as he's a veteran and has a background in military he may often sound a bit blunt, and I have to be less sensitive and more accommodating because he served for the country.

like

why aren’t the US folks complaining about the same attitude within Deloitte firms in US? I heard a partner saying “F*** You” to a SM on a call and that SM in the next morning meeting went left and right on junior folks with aggressive attitude.

Lol I’ve had an SM say very similar things to me before. He is now a P 😂.

Why doesn’t this surprise me. Diversity and Inclusion directors aren’t usually as inclusive themselves and often times not at all woke or understanding diversity at all. Only shows how much bullshit these diversity and inclusion programs are within consulting. It’s just marketing to show how well they are doing as a firm to the outside world. Not trying to be really inclusive.

Completely unnecessary role. Makes the company culture worse.

Actions don’t sound too bad by themselves. What stood out to me though is that the article states there were more than a dozen complaints - which in my opinion looks really bad on our firm as a whole. How did it ever get to 12+ ??

Can anyone who works at D shed more light here. Is this warranted?

Interesting article

UK Deloitter here 👋 Don’t know Dimple personally however she has definitely done a lot for respect and inclusion in our firm. I was always impressed by her. Very disappointed to hear she may not have been the nicest to work with. Hope those affected are ok.

Kind of aggravated with the example male leadership is setting right now with regard to parenting at CV. At least 5 men in leadership have had new babies in the last month and it seems like some have taken no time off or only the bare minimum. We have 12 weeks and should be encouraged to use it! If leadership isn’t taking advantage of their own policy, what does that say to the rest of the staff? In my perspective, this is likely further contributing to the gender disparity in CV leadership
