“Across the globe, one thing is universally true of the people of Accenture: We care deeply about what we do and the impact we have with our clients and communities. It is personal to all of us,” said Julie Sweet, the CEO of the company. The company is very strict about its code of conduct and ethics. The firing of employees that recently took place proves the company’s intolerance towards violation of its ethics and code of conduct. So, it fired a lot of its staff. The company also has a lot of core values. It builds long-term relationships with clients and helps them achieve more with their business. Accenture helps them reach their highest potential by giving them the best guidance.
The company is also very selective about the people that it hires. It wants only the best people in its workforce who can give what the client and company demand. So, therefore, the company does not compromise on employees and hires the best people with the best skills. Lastly, the company also keeps the environment in mind and it believes that it does have a responsibility towards it and therefore works for climate action.
