Accenture Named to 2019 List of Canada's Top Employers for Eighth Consecutive Year
Friday, November 09, 2018

TORONTO, Nov. 9, 2018 /CNW/ - Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been named one of Canada's Top 100 Employers for the eighth consecutive year. The national competition determines which employers lead their industries in offering exceptional workplaces for their employees.

"At Accenture we strive to be a place where our people can navigate and grow their careers while we collectively help our clients solve their most significant challenges," said Bill Morris, president of Accenture in Canada.

Accenture is consistently recognized in Canada and around the world as an employer of choice. For instance, the company has been named to FORTUNE World's Most Admired Companies for 16 consecutive years, DiversityInc's for 12 consecutive years, and the Thomson Reuters Diversity & Inclusion Index for three consecutive years - placing first this year.

"Embedded into our culture and core values is our commitment to inclusion and diversity: Last year, Accenture announced it will strive to achieve gender parity by 2025, and we are actively working to attract, retain, advance and sponsor women on this path," said Claudia Thompson, managing director of Inclusion and Diversity and of Accenture's Health & Public Service practice in Canada.

Some new programs and initiatives that contribute to Accenture continuing to be recognized as an employer of choice include:

    --  New innovative environment: Accenture moved into a new space in downtown
        Toronto at Scotia Plaza. This new office accommodates more employees and
        enables the company's people to work collaboratively with clients using
        the newest workplace technologies. The space keeps up with Accenture's
        commitment to promoting environmental sustainability and is uniquely
        "Toronto," with local art, featuring more than 30 living walls, and
        breathtaking views of the city.
    --  Speak Up campaign: Accenture launched its Speak Up campaign in December
        2017 to emphasize Accenture's values in creating a space that is
        inclusive to all. Accenture people wear green buttons and stickers that
        read "Speak Up - Conduct Counts" that promote the campaign - which
        serves as a catalyst for conversations to speak up against inappropriate
    --  Cleaning up our community: Community involvement is one of the biggest
        drivers of employee engagement at Accenture. In the past year, 275
        Accenture volunteers from the Toronto and Mississauga offices travelled
        to Humber Bay Park East in Mimico, Toronto, for a community clean-up
        activity. Partnering with the Toronto Region Conservation Authority
        (TRCA), the group collected 286 pounds of garbage along the Humber Bay
        East shoreline to help ensure it was clean and safe for everyone to
        enjoy its natural beauty.
