We all know how important employer brands and corporate cultures are in attracting and retaining top talent. A few months ago, we shared a post, “Inclusion Starts With I…When A Moment Becomes a Movement,” about the work Accenture is doing around issues of workplace inclusion.  

We are proud to have played a small part in that effort, working with them to produce an inspiring, informative, and impactful video on the topic: 

"We put inclusion and diversity at the very heart of the way we work, think, and run our business because we believe that only if you bring your true self to work will Accenture benefit from the best you can be. At its simplest level, a diverse workforce is a more powerful workforce, and at Accenture that means delivering even more value to clients."

Oliver Benzecry, Chairman and Managing Director of Accenture UK & Ireland

But Accenture’s efforts haven’t stopped there. 

Their belief that inclusion, diversity, and gender parity are crucial to business success is driving an ongoing commitment to highlighting the issues impacting so many in the workforce. Accenture is helping to drive the conversation around those issues forward not only for themselves but also for companies across the globe. 

It’s critical that companies create a truly human environment where people can be successful both professionally and personally—where they can be who they are and feel they belong, every day.”

Ellyn Shook, the Chief Leadership & Human Resources Officer at Accenture
