Accenture named a Top 10 company for women in India

Accenture has been recognised in the Top 10 of the 100 Best Companies for Women in India list, which celebrates organisations that champion sustainable careers for women. The inaugural list was published by Working Mother and AVTAR.

Accenture was recognised for providing an inclusive and supportive environment for its more than 45,000 women in India. It scored highly on several of the list’s categories, including women’s recruitment, retention and advancement, safety and security, flexible work programs and paid-time off. The company was also recognised for its leading maternity benefits and support for returning mothers.

“Creating an inclusive environment that enables women to achieve both their personal and professional ambitions, reflects Accenture’s core values and culture,” said Rekha M. Menon, Chairman and Managing Director, Accenture in India. “We’re pushing barriers to make our company more inclusive, and we’re honored to have our efforts recognised by Working Mother and AVTAR. We remain committed to ensuring that our women feel empowered to drive their own success.”

Accenture leads several initiatives in India that enable its female employees to be successful, both personally and professionally. For example, the company :

  • Offers leadership development programs for its high-potential women, helping them hone the key skills needed to advance and foster relationships with senior leaders
  • Helps women build and extend their professional networks – both in and outside of Accenture – with Vaahini, its networking forum for women
  • Offers career-track focused initiatives specifically for women, including one that helps them advance their tech skills and become technical architects
  • Provides access to a variety of flexible work programs; the company helps new mothers in their transition back to work by identifying ideal re-entry roles and providing various women’s leadership development programs to support their long-term success
  • In Accenture’s 2016 fiscal year, more than one-third of Accenture’s new hires in India were women. The company recently announced that it surpassed its goal to reach 40 percent female new hires worldwide by 2017. Currently, there are more than 145,000 women globally at Accenture.
