Skills To Succeed

Skills to Succeed, Accenture's corporate citizenship initiative, applies an Accenture core competence—training talent—to the need for skills that open doors to employment around the world. It is a key aspect of our commitment to embed corporate social responsibility into our business.

We have equipped more than half a million people with the skills to get a job or build a business—more than doubling the impact we set out to achieve when we announced our Skills to Succeed goal in 2010. By 2015, we plan to equip 700,000 people globally with the skills to get a job or build a business.

Skills to Succeed inspires our people. Their passion, experience and commitment to develop and nurture their talents fuel our initiatives—and demonstrate the impact business can have when they harness their talents to make a difference.

Skills to Succeed have seized the imagination of our employees, and their time, skills, advisory services and expertise enhance our impact around the world. Launching Micro loans with Planet Finance is a new lever for our people to contribute to our Skills to Succeed efforts. Read more about Skills to Succeed program.
