Emerging technologies, including robotics and artificial intelligence, can displace even the most talented of workers. And for Deloitte, which helps Fortune 500 companies adapt to technological change, keeping its own staff of 280,000 professionals re-skilled is an existential priority. There are now six Deloitte University facilities worldwide, training 65,000 staffers each year, including thousands of new hires. (Deloitte brings on a new employee every 8 minutes.) Last year, that added up to a $69 million investment, including 400,000-plus hours of skills development and teaching. And those skills benefit other companies when Deloitte trainees move on to new employers.
