Leveraged technology to build connections to put people to work, powered by Accenture
We built connections to put people back to work
We launched People + Work Connect two years ago to help put the world to work. Last year, we evolved the free, online platform to help companies with a demand for talent connect with community organizations that represent "hidden workers" – people who are eager to work and possess—or could develop—the skills employers seek, if only those employers could find them.
By building relationships with these community organizations, we helped employers find talent in new ways that benefited everyone.
Through People + Work Connect, we facilitated connections with 280+ companies from 94 countries, uploading over 390,000 roles—creating a community built on trust and knowledge-sharing.
If you have any questions about how the platform worked, please let us know.

People + Work Connect was originally founded by chief human resources officers from leading organizations seeking to provide a new way to put the world to work:
Ellyn Shook, Chief Leadership & Human Resources Officer – Accenture
Lisa Buckingham, Advisory Board Member – SucceedSmart
Christy Pambianchi, Executive Vice President and Chief People Officer – Intel Corporation
Pat Wadors, Chief People Officer – Procore
More recently, the initiative was led by a steering committee who worked to grow the platform’s impact by partnering with community organizations that represented untapped talent:
Colin Anderson, HR Digital Transformation and People Analytics Leader – Accenture
Tracy Layney, Senior Vice President & Chief Human Resources Officer – Levi Strauss & Company
Libby Saylor Wright, COO of US Retail & Consumer Goods – Microsoft
Pedro Suriel, Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion – Raymond James
Alex Taylor, Head of HR for Global Markets, Global Corporate Investment Banking – Merrill, Private Bank and Enterprise Credit at Bank of America
About People + Work Connect
People + Work Connect was powered by an analytics-driven platform developed by Accenture, which pooled non-confidential and aggregated workforce information by categories such as location and experience. The platform was global and open to all industries but was not available to individuals or staffing agencies.
Through People + Work Connect, Nestlé has reimagined and reinvented recruitment. As a result, the company has secured a dynamic talent capability that will help them respond to today’s challenges while maximizing tomorrow’s opportunities
