Skills to Succeed in South Africa
Accenture’s Skills to Succeed initiative empowers people through skills development, entrepreneurship and job opportunities to participate in a more economically inclusive world.
With over a decade of Skills to Succeed in South Africa, we continue to evolve and expand this initiative. We collaborate with our clients, NGOs, suppliers, government, research and development organisations, and other stakeholders – to ensure collective impact to enable a growing economy and a society that works for all.
Accenture’s Enterprise and Supplier Development Programme applies global best-practice principles to scale and sustain the entrepreneurs and small business suppliers with whom we partner.
The aim is to increase the participation of black-owned SMEs within both our own supply chain and in the wider economy. We are realising this aim through our innovative Enterprise and Supplier Development (ESD) programme.
As a talent- and innovation-led organization, Accenture relies on the creativity and ingenuity of our people to define our unique role in the world, enable us to grow—and drive change for our clients. We support our people with care and compassion and continually offer them opportunities to learn, develop their skills and advance their careers, with a commitment to equal pay and to creating an inclusive work environment. Our focus on sustainability across our business not only improves our own competitiveness and drives returns for shareholders—it also helps us attract, motivate and retain the best people.
Our commitment to equality for all and transformation reaches beyond economic empowerment—it is driven by our global ambition to be the most inclusive and diverse company in the world.
We are committed to building a sustainable economy in which all South Africans can participate meaningfully. We know this is critical to South Africa’s growth and our own success in this country.
Fostering a sense of belonging among employees makes all the difference. Creating an inclusive workplace needs to be at the top of an organisations agenda. If not, the talent gap will only continue to grow.
When the right people are at the table (Diversity) and have access to equitable experiences (Inclusion) all people will experience a culture of Belonging.
Leaders can begin to foster a sense of belonging by focusing on the essential people skills. In doing so, leaders can go beyond inclusion and make everyone feel like they truly belong.
Accenture has partnered with SA INC, a media program, to showcase positive stories of change in South Africa and highlight the importance of collaboration in addressing pertinent issues affecting the youth.
Through commitment in driving social transformation and economic growth, this program explores the interventions and partnerships that are powering sustainable and shared value creation.
