In 2016, Accenture established its internal apprenticeship program, and a year later cofounded, along with Aon and Zurich North America, the Chicago Apprentice Network, partnering with local employers like McDonald’s, JP Morgan Chase and Walgreens to jumpstart their professional apprenticeship programs. Today, the network has 70+ member organizations and has well exceeded its initial goal to create 1,000+ apprenticeships.
Building off the success of the Chicago Apprentice Network, Accenture is working with Aon and other organizations to expand the model across the country and has launched Apprentice Networks in Detroit, Greater Washington, D.C., Houston, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York City, Northern California and Philadelphia.
We developed the Apprenticeship Program Resource Guide to engage other companies in the national professional apprenticeship movement. We share how apprenticeship programs are redefining the future of talent and creating a more inclusive innovation economy, Accenture’s apprenticeship program journey and practices to help other companies jumpstart their own program.
