Accenture on skills to succeed
Since 2010, Accenture has equipped, together with their strategic partners, more than 2.8 million people with the skills to get a job or build a business globally. By the end of fiscal 2020, they will equip 3 million people globally with workplace and entrepreneurial skills.
In the Netherlands, they have three areas where they want to make a significant impact towards this goal: fight youth unemployment, increase employability of talent groups and encourage social entrepreneurship. They are partnering with a variety of Dutch non-profits to build skills that enable individuals to participate in and contribute to the economy. Through their Skills to Succeed initiatives, Accenture volunteers are actively involved in making a meaningful difference.
“With the platform that GoodUp built, we can manage more do-good projects in less time. It creates an overview of all that we do, and it shows the cumulative results. Furthermore, the Customer Success Services that we received – like workshops, challenges and boosters – has inspired employees to start projects that are not only making an impact, but are also very relevant to our business””
