Accenture’s work environment

Accenture’s work environment leverages the latest technology and workplace tools to support a healthy and productive work experience.

Our Approach

As an Accenture employee, you can expect a work environment that:

  • Emphasizes team-based activities.

  • Encourages relationship building, knowledge sharing and acculturation.

  • Addresses new generations of workers who have different workplace expectations and requirements.

  • Leverages new technologies to support the increasingly mobile and distributed nature of our work.

  • Lowers our carbon footprint through improving distanced communication and collaboration.

Office Space

As an Accenture professional, your work environments will be as diverse as the industries and services we offer our clients. You may find yourself at a client site alongside your project team; as part of a customer service team at one of our industry-leading delivery centers; telecommuting from your home or other locations, as Accenture becomes increasingly mobile and digital; or “hoteling” at your local Accenture office.

But when you’re in an Accenture office, you will always find a workplace environment that incorporates our core values by design, enhances knowledge sharing and collaboration, and increases the visibility and access of our local leaders. For example, many offices feature a prominently positioned “Network Café” that includes both work and social spaces, allowing employees and leaders to easily engage and connect.

And you’re likely to enjoy the benefit of knowing that your office was developed in support of eco efficiency. In fact, many Accenture offices have been awarded environmental design certifications and our procurement teams around the world evaluate our suppliers for environmental responsibility. In addition Accenture has achieved global ISO certification for Environmental Management (ISO14001) and has reduced our carbon footprint by more than 30% on a per capita basis since 2007.


WORKPLACE FLEXIBILITY

We know how important workplace flexibility is to enable you to strike a balance between your work and personal life. Accenture offers a flexible approach—giving options for how, and where, you do your work. We provide innovative communication and collaboration tools to help increase your productivity, efficiency and flexibility as you stay connected globally. Our fly-back program, smart work initiative and client-site flexible work arrangements help address the challenges that come with the professional travel experienced by many of our consulting employees. Here are some of the various flexible work arrangements we offer at Accenture:

Flex time schedule: Allows employees to vary their start and finish times around predetermined core hours, or work their standard hours in fewer than five days by varying the length of each workday.

Part-time arrangement: Enables employees to work less than a standard full-time schedule per week, by working fewer hours per day or fewer days per week. Usually the role is designed around a reduced workload so that job responsibilities match the number of hours worked.

Job-sharing arrangement: Involves dividing the workload of a full-time position between two employees (usually each working a part-time schedule). It's a great way for our people to keep on the career track while allowing them more time outside of work.

Telecommuting/home working: Enables employees to work from a location other than an Accenture office or project site.

This can reduce the time, costs and stress of commuting for employees while helping Accenture control and often reduce the cost of fixed office space.

Fly-backs: Help support work/life balance for employees with significant travel, often the case for consulting professionals. We offer them fly-backs to their home location, the option to fly someone to their project site, and the option to fly to an alternate location in place of a trip home.

Client-site flexible work arrangements: Help our consulting professionals, who spend much of their time working at client sites away from their home location, balance work and personal life. These flexible working options help meet their needs, while still meeting the needs of our clients:

  • Full weekend at home: Arrive at the project midday on Monday and stop client work early Friday afternoon, thereby providing for a full weekend at home. Work the same number of hours as a full work week, but compress the completion into a shorter time frame.

  • Extended weekends in home location: Work a five-day work week: four days at the project site and the fifth day in the home office or approved alternate location, with either three or four nights at the out-of-town location.

  • Extended client/home location: Work an extended period of time at a client site followed by an extended number of days at the home office or approved alternate location, without altering the standard work week requirement and just changing time of hours worked.
