About Accenture

Accenture is a leading global professional services company, providing a broad range of services and solutions in strategy, consulting, digital, technology and operations. We serve clients in over 40 industries in 120 countries around the world to maximize their performance and achieve their vision.

Our Working Culture

Everything we do to deliver our vision comes to life through the Accenture Way - it is how we do things and deliver value. It is how we interact with our clients and each other. As a company, our mission is to help improve the way the world works and lives, and we believe this starts with our people. We have created an inspiring people culture where employees are empowered to innovate and create their own future.

Accenture embraces inclusion and diversity as a powerful catalyst for our continued success. Our firm is made up of diverse teams of highly motivated people who are collaborative and focused on delivering value for our clients. The diversity of our people is part of what makes Accenture exceptional, and we recognize that each person has unique strengths that can help us relate and stay relevant to our clients. Accenture adopts the widest approach to diversity and believe that no one should be discriminated against because of their differences, such as age, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, religion or sexual orientation.

At Accenture, we support women in achieving their professional goals and aspirations, as part of our commitment to an inclusive and diverse workplace. We are committed to growing our women in leadership roles, where today over 40 percent of the leaders in our ASEAN GeoCouncil are women. Since 2016, we have begun reporting the gender demographics of our ASEAN workforce (Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand). Going forward, we will report annually on our progress.

We believe in empowering our people to be their best through understanding their personal strengths and aspirations, and applying those at work. We revolutionized our approach and culture to performance management-enabled through our new Performance Achievement platform that enables individuals and teams to set priorities aligned with their personal strengths and business goals, and to collaborate more effectively and meaningfully. This platform is also integrated with our total rewards systems allowing leaders to make personalized rewards decisions aligned to one's achievements and growth potential.

Accenture recognises that in order for our people to be successful, it requires the balance of the right skills and the right opportunities. We are firm advocates of lifelong learning and believe that continuous learning is essential to building the right skills, which is why we make learning-from basic skills to industry-specific content-available to all our people. In 2015, we invested US$841 million globally in training and professional development for our people. The centrepiece of this investment is Accenture Connected Learning, a blend of classroom-based training and a digital learning environment that links our employees to professional content and world-class experts from inside and outside Accenture.
