Deliotte Arlington hanging out with PGA Professional Harold Varner at the City Championship
In 2017, Deloitte began a unique initiative to provide their employees with a new benefit: playing golf. Not necessarily the first health and wellness benefit would expect to receive from their employer, but the results and impact were great.
Employees were able to compete in team-based golf City Tour tournaments nationwide. As a result, co-workers had the chance to bond outside the office, network with other local professionals and enjoy golfing in a competitive, yet relaxed environment. Here are 3 ways Deloitte leveraged the City Tour in 2017:
- Since Deloitte has offices nationwide it provided the perfect match for the City Tour locations in major cities across the US. Deloitte employees had the chance to compete in Atlanta, Bay Area, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, DC, Denver, Houston, New York, and Philly; which they took advantage of with over 252 total golf rounds played.
- Health and Wellness support – Deloitte is very supportive of their professionals and wanted to provide another fun opportunity for them through the City Tour, “We are proud to sponsor teams of golfers to play in tournaments, which allow our professionals to refresh and energize, as well as provide the chance to connect with each other, and better understand our dedication to increasing golfer engagement.” -Pete Giorgio, Deloitte Consulting LLP, Partner and sports consulting leader
- 20 Deloitte employees competed at the City Tour national championship in Myrtle Beach, SC. Representatives from San Francisco, Boston, and DC teed it up against national competition and had a blast meeting Srixon Tour pro Harold Varner and playing two of the two courses in Myrtle Beach.
