Accenture employee receives President’s Call to Service Award
By: Accenture Recruitment


At Accenture, our employees make a difference in their communities--both on the job and off. No one illustrates this better than Marty Rodgers, Managing Director-Accenture Federal Services, who was just awarded the President’s Call to Service Award for his more than 4,000 hours of lifetime volunteer service.

The President’s Volunteer Service Award recognizes U.S. citizens and lawfully admitted permanent residents of the United States who have achieved the required number of hours of service over a 12-month time period – or cumulative hours over the course of a lifetime. The Call to Service is the highest designation and includes a certificate, pin and letter from the President of the United States.

Among the many community service programs Marty has been involved with in the last 20 years are:

  • Helping craft numerous pieces of relevant legislation, including the King Holiday & Service Act which turns the Federal Holiday named after Martin King into a national day of service.
  • Helping to author the National & Community Service Trust Act of 1993 that created the national Americorps program in which nearly a million Americans have served since its launch 20 years ago.
  • Serving on numerous nonprofit boards.
  • Leading numerous corporate citizenship efforts at Accenture.

“When we talk about what defines us – and this is true for individuals as well as the company – there is an abiding and pervasive sense that it is our core values,” says Marty. “At Accenture, chief among these is Stewardship which rises to the top. Accenture is a place that lives its core values – day in and day out – which means we’re going to make a difference for clients, our teams, and the broader world. It is who we are. It defines us and separates us. It’s why no one can touch us.”
