At Accenture, Corporate Citizenship is central to our vision to improve the way the world works and lives, our core values and our Code of Business Ethics. Ultimately, it is reflected in the actions of our people. From Skills to Succeed to environmental stewardship, we work to make a sustainable difference in the long-term vibrancy and vitality of people and communities around the world. In Finland our main civil society organization partners are the Finnish Red Cross and the Ronald McDonald Children’s Home Foundation. In addition, we work actively with other CSOs by, for instance, providing them with work and consulting services in several subject matters.
The Ronald McDonald Children’s Home Foundation raises funds to promote children’s healthcare and run the maintenance and operations of the Ronald McDonald House. The house provides accommodation for the families of seriously ill children from outside the metropolitan area, so they can stay in the city while their children are being treated or undergoing tests.
Accenture has contributed work, consulting services and donations to the Finnish Red Cross. Currently Accenture is working together with the Finnish Red Cross to enhance the employability of asylum seekers through a detailed on-the-job-learning program.
