Businesses benefit from diversity and inclusion

Businesses with a strong commitment to supporting persons with disabilities in their workforce can outperform their competitors, according to our new study in partnership with Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities.

The 45 companies we identified as leaders in this field had an average of 28% higher sales, twice the net income and 30% higher economic profit margins over a four-year period compared to their competitors. Our analysis also showed that US GDP could rise to as much as $25 billion if more people with disabilities entered the workforce.

Different paths to the same goal

"Sometimes you have to take different paths, but you arrive at the same destination – that's what counts." In our video, Maria shows how she uses this motto to work successfully with disability.

Join our Managing Director Dirk as he meets Maria and learns more about the small daily obstacles she faces and how Accenture is navigating its journey towards accessibility.

For Accenture, inclusion is not just a word, it's part of our culture. For our own benefit and for that of our clients, we look for the best talent – for people like Maria – and disability should present no barrier.
