Big Four firm Deloitte has recently expanded its Government and Public Services (GPS) practice in Hawaii, building on its more than 115-year history of serving clients in the islands dating back to 1907. The firm provides extensive national defense services, including for the U.S. Navy in San Diego and the U.S. Space Force in Los Angeles.
“Our professionals in Hawaii include both Kamaʻāina and veterans of the military,” says Joseph Young, Managing Partner at Deloitte & Touche LLP in Honolulu. “Our distinction as the preeminent professional services organization in Hawaii, along with the strength of our national Government and Public Services practice, has helped us create a multidisciplinary team to serve both our local military and business community. We are humbled and honored to perform these services for the betterment of the people of Hawaii and our country.”
The firm seeks to bolster its presence on the island to provide assistance to the U.S. national defense community in adapting to the rapidly changing geopolitical environment, having recently participated in TechNet Indo-Pacific 2021 and the U.S. Army’s annual Land Forces of the Pacific (LANPAC) conference. Deloitte sponsored LANPAC’s Junior Leader Solarium, a series of sessions providing education and mentorship to junior personnel. Its participation included a panel on “Human Capital Development and Workforce Trends,” led by John Forsythe, DoD human capital managing director at Deloitte Consulting LLP.
Deloitte’s growth in the area will also help it expand on its history of giving back to Hawaii, with the firm’s Honolulu office recently participating in a Cleanup Day at Sand Island State Recreation Area, as well as past projects maintaining and beautifying the USS Battleship Missouri at Pearl Harbor. Deloitte is also expanding its hiring of veterans in the area, recently participating in two job fairs for transitioning military veterans to grow its pool of more than 3,000 veterans and 1,500 military spouses.
Growing its GPS capabilities will help Deloitte continue to meet client needs for logistics, human capital, modernization, and decision advantage technology, and the firm has plans to present its GPS capabilities at TechNet 2022 in November. Its expanding investment in the area is certain to help meet the growing needs of both clients and the community on the islands.
