CORPORATE CITIZENSHIP


Corporate citizenship programmes

Improving the way the world works and lives

SKILLS TO SUCCEED

In the United Kingdom, our Corporate Citizenship programmes focus on environmental and social sustainability to bring positive change to the communities where we live and work.

Through our Corporate Citizenship programmes, we bring a powerful combination of financial assistance, volunteering, fundraising and pro bono contributions of time to help young people across the UK gain employability and entrepreneurial skills. We strive to enhance economic inclusion and resilience at both individual and community levels.

Globally we want to provide 3 million people, by 2020, with the right skills to help them into employment. In the UK, since 2010, our local programmes have provided training and assistance to thousands of young people to gain skills that will help them find work and stay in work.

Our Skills to Succeed efforts focus on addressing youth unemployment by providing young people, aged 16-24, who aren't in education, employment or training, with support to build skills and obtain work.

None of the work we do would be possible without the support of our charity partners. We work with multiple organisations to deliver the Skills to Succeed programme.

OUR STRATEGIC PARTNERS

VOLUNTEERING

In Accenture, 89 percent of people say that job satisfaction was enhanced as a result of helping others.

Volunteering is a core part of Accenture’s Corporate Citizenship offering, which enables all United Kingdom employees to play a role in improving the way the world works and lives by offering everyone three days paid leave to volunteer. We provide our employees with lots of opportunities from volunteering and doing charity work to taking part in pro bono activities.

As part of delivering our 2020 strategy to skill three million people across the world, involving our people to be a part of the vision, is more important than ever before.

By 2020, we anticipate seeing an evolution in the volunteering landscape across the United Kingdom. Employer-Supported Volunteering (ESV) is expected to undergo unprecedented growth and change, driven by a blend of economic, technological and government forces. The Organisations who embrace this change have a tremendous opportunity to make a greater social impact, whilst also benefiting their businesses.

Accenture's report—A 2020 vision for Employer-Supported Volunteering highlights the five key trends that are emerging in the space and offers recommendations to help organisations position themselves to maximise social impact.
