Accenture’s culture of innovation

At Accenture we are driven by the pursuit of innovation every day. We’ve cultivated a culture where a diverse group of innovators from around the globe can come together to solve industries’ and organizations’ most complex problems.

Our culture of equality, where everyone belongs and can thrive, is the engine that drives our creativity. With a focus on inclusion & diversity and our innovation architecture, we’ve created a workplace culture that drives innovation and produces better outcomes for our clients, communities and people.

Collaborating to recognize innovation

We believe one of the most critical things a company can do to survive in this ever-changing landscape is nurture and inspire innovation among its people.

We’re honored to collaborate with Fast Company to deliver an annual list of the Best Workplaces for Innovators. It was a natural fit to pair our leading-edge research capabilities with Fast Company’s leading business editorial sense to create the gold-standard ranking of the best workplaces for innovation-hungry employees.
