Training and career counseling

Accenture provides ongoing employee training, career counseling and mentoring to help you build your skills and continue to grow in your career.

Overview

Part of the support we offer you is ongoing training to help you remain at the top of your game and continue to grow. We make constant investments in our employees' development, and last year we invested more than $787 million in training and developing our people.

Training

Throughout a career at Accenture, you can develop skills and capabilities based on your interests and talents. It starts with new joiner orientation and our core curriculum, which provide an introduction to Accenture and help develop basic skills for success. As you progress in your career, we will help you expand your knowledge and skills through formal development programs, leaders teaching leaders, and people developing people. We have regional centers as well as virtual centers for training and development as part of our global network for learning.

There are education centers in St. Charles, outside of Chicago (at the Q Center), London (at Kent’s Hill Park, Milton Keynes) and Kuala Lumpur (at the Sheraton Imperial KL) to help provide quality training experiences. Our classroom training is facilitated by Accenture leaders who teach from their own experience, having experienced many of the successes and challenges you will face on the job.

Accenture also offers a wide variety of other learning opportunities including social learning via industry hubs and communities of practice, self-studies and virtual learning, industry certification programs, apprenticeships and action learning programs, mentoring programs, and new innovations such as mobile learning and virtual labs.

Career Counselors

Our career counselors play an important role in the experience of Accenture people. Few companies assign each employee a designated, more experienced person who provides career coaching and guidance to help them manage their careers and develop professionally. Your career counselor will:

  • Help you shape your career goals and actions to achieve those goals.

  • Help you navigate career options and opportunities at Accenture.

  • Clarify your job/role and expectations when needed.

  • Provide direct, honest and timely feedback.

  • Objectively represent you throughout the performance management process.

  • Explain performance management outcomes.

  • Provide guidance in creating and implementing a comprehensive career development plan.

  • Help you expand your internal network and access resources to help you address development objectives.

  • Take action on your behalf.

Accenture career counselors are empowered to make a real difference in the careers of our people—and our business results.

Internal Communities

Our internal communities help our people feel connected throughout Accenture no matter where they are located or with whom they work. Communities are typically comprised of 100 to 150 employees spanning all levels and provide a forum to create strong ties with colleagues through professional and social activities.

Various employee groups also exist to help people build connections. They may be organized around a common interest, ethnicity, sexual orientation, career path, family arrangement, faith or religion.

Mentoring
Accenture employees have the opportunity to learn from and be coached by the best people in the business—supportive leaders and colleagues who share their industry, technical and functional expertise. A mentoring relationship is another way to develop professionally at Accenture—in addition to training courses, practical experience on the job and formal feedback programs.
