Behind every change there are amazing people

At Accenture, our success is based on our employees. Thanks to them, we are drivers of innovation and create lasting changes as well as new values.

To make the change work, we need diversity. Not only does our corporate culture become more unique through the multitude of perspectives but also our work benefits from this. We create an added value that is based on the talent and creativity of our personnel. Our staff members are drivers of positive change. They contribute individually to our ability of making a difference together.

Thereby, we consider all the shades of diversity. For us, people’s sex, generations, cultural and ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientation as well as people with disabilities are all part of this. However, diversity can only lead to success if it comes with a culture of equality and inclusion. This is why aspects such as the approach towards mental health, working parents and a modern understanding of leadership matter too. That is the precondition for our talents to make use of their strengths as much as possible, to feel appreciated and to actively participate on affecting changes.

Creating a workplace for everybody

Thilo Springer is passionate about everything that is related to technical innovations. Implementing software, supporting employees’ development while keeping an eye on the bigger picture – these are his strengths. In 2017, Thilo suffered a severe stroke of fate when he lost his sight in a car accident. However, the accident did not change his passion for digital topics.

“I was lucky that the managing board immediately told me: as soon as I am fully recovered, there is a perspective for me here”, Thilo recounts. Touching and listening instead of seeing, taking more time for individual tasks – these were new challenges Thilo faced once he was back at his workplace.

Today, Thilo remembers these developments proudly and encourages companies to adapt their workplaces more to everybody’s needs. In the video, you can learn more about Thilo’s personal journey out of his usual life and back into the professional world.

Allowing yourself to press the Pause-Button

After her career in the fast lane Leonie, Innovation Manager and Creative Director at Accenture, deliberately decided to take a time out and to thereby listen to what her body signaled her. During this time she discovered a topic that moves her like nothing else: Mental Health. This topic accompanies her up till today next to her actual job at Accenture as a coach.

If we think about how fast our digital world has become, it is not surprising that we feel quite overstrained every once in a while. That’s completely normal. It is all the more important to also press the pause-button: “In these times, it is highly important to allow yourself a break. Sometimes we need to stop in order to be able to run faster again”, says Leonie.

Talking openly about mental health, slowing down deliberately and accepting help: Throughout the video Leonie provides emotional insights into her personal path towards mental health and the role of the employer’s support in this process.

Acceptance is a highly relevant topic

“I define myself by my personality, not by my sexuality – and I think this is true for everybody else as well.” At Accenture, Fabian Jamie Manz feels that he can live and work according to this belief. “The atmosphere is one of acceptance and we have an inclusive work environment. The values of respect and equality are lived here every day. True to the motto Bring your authentic self to work.”

Jamie is simultaneously doing a mediamatician apprenticeship alongside his school degree. In his job, he is using various media technologies and channels, sitting at the interface of administration, marketing and IT. Apart from that, Jamie is also active in Accenture’s Inclusion & Diversity department. He is particularly involved in the PRIDE Network which advocates LGBT*IQ rights and equality.

Every person has the right to be the way he or she is – regardless of the person’s sexual orientation or origin. From the very beginning, a respectful treatment must be given. Therefore, it is all the more important to Jamie that this culture of equality and diversity is not only visible inside of the company but also reflected to the outside world. In the video, you can explore how he is working with the PRIDE Network to raise awareness on LGBT*IQ issues.
