Our people are at the heart of our work to deliver value to our clients and communities.
They make the difference every day, and they’re the reason we’re on both Fortune Magazine lists of 100 Best Companies to Work For, and Best Big Companies to Work For.
The 2021 list honors the most heroic companies supporting their people and communities in the U.S. during this historically challenging year.
People analytics firm Great Place to Work® surveyed over half a million employees on issues including how trustworthy, caring and fair a company is in times of crises, paying particular attention to how they are creating a great workplace for all.
So, what sets Accenture apart, especially as the world navigated uncharted waters of a global pandemic?
1. We support our people.
Already ahead of the curve in equipping our people with the tools to work effectively from remote locations, Accenture also expanded benefits to assist people dealing with a range of situations. From supporting mental health and wellness to providing care and support for family members, we put our people first.
2. We support our clients and communities.
We also helped clients and communities outmaneuver uncertainty. From developing plans to help schools safely reopen, to funding paid virtual internships for students across six non-profit organizations, to helping hundreds of businesses pivot to new ways of working, we ensured that they not only survived; they thrived.
3. We put inclusion and diversity at the top.
Our commitment to our people and to accelerating equality for all has never been more relevant than it is today. We strive to cultivate an environment where our people feel a deep sense of belonging. Our areas of focus include gender, ethnicity and race, LGBTI, religion, persons with disabilities and cross-cultural diversity, and this commitment starts at the top with our executive chairman, chief executive officer and Board.
4. We offer boundaryless career opportunities.
With more than 500,000 people working in 120 countries across the globe—we’re a huge operation! The diversity of our teams delivers exceptional innovation for our clients. And we place the utmost importance on our people’s skills and talents—not on their geographic location, which means the opportunities to discover new experiences are endless.
5. We never stop learning.
The story of each Accenture person is individual, which drives how they develop their talents. Our continuous learning and development programs help enhance personal growth and build the skills needed to grow careers now and in the future.
6. Innovation drives everything we do.
Accenture is at the forefront of innovation—for our clients, but also for our people. With opportunities to challenge ourselves, to test new ideas in a supportive environment and receive recognition for individual and team successes, this is all part of our people’s career experience.
7. We lead by example.
Our core values guide us. From interns to board members, we are all accountable for building an organization where we are proud.
8. We flex for life’s ups and downs.
Our well-being and culture programs are designed to support our people and their personal circumstances, empowering them to create a workplace environment that gives flexibility all the while keeping them globally connected.
9. We care.
The size and scale of our business allows us to help shape business practices and society for the better, whether by creating innovative solutions with our clients or by working alongside our partners to support the communities in which we live and work.
