Deloitte Signed the Diversity Charter

As part of the European Diversity Day, Deloitte and other 15 companies signed up to the Diversity Charter. The signature confirmed our commitment to continue to develop a working environment open to all employees regardless of their sex, age, nationality and health condition.

Patronage of the adherence to the Diversity Charter principles in the Czech Republic was assumed by the “Business for Society” non-profit organisation, which also coordinated the joining of new members, including Deloitte. So far, the Charter has been signed by 70 enterprises in the Czech Republic.

Why has Deloitte joined the Charter? “The magic lies in uniqueness; in the uniqueness of each of our 1,200 employees whose day-to-day presence embodies the essence of diversity. Diversity is the core power of our business. However, we cannot focus solely on business. We also have to take interest in those who make it work as the uniqueness of each of them represents a wide array of diversity aspects,” added David Batal, Partner in Charge in the Audit and Advisory function of Deloitte.

In the long-term, our understanding is that there is no place for differences between employees in the working environment in the 21st century. Take a look at how Deloitte Czech Republic makes an impact that matters.

Online education from the perspective of teachers: technical unpreparedness of schools will pose a challenge even after the pandemic has abated

Schools have been in the online mode for two months, and some pupils and students are slowly returning to their desks, although with some limitations. However, once the doors of our educational institutions are fully open again, we should not draw a line under distance education and return to the pre-crisis state again: everything that has been created for the purposes of online schooling in recent weeks should be further developed and turned into not only a self-contained alternative to classic forms of teaching but also their full-fledged part. At least that is the opinion of primary and secondary school teachers; in our latest webcast, we asked them how they judge the current situation and what they expect in the coming months.

Synchronous vs. asynchronous teaching: How to adjust methods for online education?

In relation to the form of its teaching, each subject has its specifics. Czech, Mathematics, Biology, History, English, Music… in each of these (and many more) lessons, the teacher needs to use a different teaching method to engage pupils and to effectively convey the necessary knowledge. However, the situation rapidly changed due to the quarantine and the need to transfer education into the online environment. What is the difference between synchronous (contact) and asynchronous (distance) teaching? And which tools can teachers use to transform the education process in the best way possible?
