Creating a truly inclusive workplace

We recognize and encourage each Accenture person’s unique story—welcoming them as they are, helping them discover and develop each other’s talents.

Setting our people up for success

If people feel a sense of belonging and are valued by their employers for their unique contributions, perspectives and circumstances, they are more likely to advance and feel empowered to innovate.

Financial inclusion for the maritime industry

Shipping vessels are away from port for months at a time, which takes their crew away from their homes and families and makes it difficult to transfer funds back home.

NYK, a world leader in the shipping industry, hoped to improve the lives of seafarers and their families by creating a more secure, safer and easier way to pay their crew through a new electronic currency platform called “MarCoPay” (which comes from the term “Maritime Community”). The goal was to also simplify payments for the ship captain and reduce the need for carrying large amounts of cash on board, which can pose safety and security risks.
