Accenture, Finalist 2011, The National Grid Best for Flexible Working Award

Accenture have invested heavily in leading edge technology to enable colleagues to connect up globally, reducing the need for extensive travel and allowing flexibility for employees collaborating across time zones. They have also taken a lifecycle approach to flexibility, recognising that employees will have changing flexibility needs throughout their careers. Flexibility is available to all employees, and performance is measured on outputs rather than time. Flexibility is being embedded into the organisation as a core value, and improvements in retention and turnover of staff and engagement have resulted. More than half of all staff work flexibly in some way.
