Accenture named to 2021 list of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for 11th consecutive year

TORONTO; Nov. 13, 2020 – For the 11th year in a row, Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers.

The Canada’s Top 100 Employers ranking, now in its 21st year, is a national competition that identifies employers leading their industries with innovative programs to attract and retain top talent and foster exceptional workplace environments.

“It’s an honour to be recognized again, alongside so many clients and partners, as a leading employer in Canada – especially during a time of unprecedented challenges and change,” said Jeffrey Russell, president of Accenture in Canada. “The past year has underscored why we put the wellbeing of our people first, why we are committed to nurturing an inclusive workforce, and why we invest in talent and skills so that we can emerge stronger together.”

Accenture has been consistently recognized in Canada and globally as an employer of choice. The company has been named to Fortune’s World’s Most Admired Companies list for 18 consecutive years, DiversityInc’s Top 50 Companies for Diversity list for 14 consecutive years, and the Refinitiv Diversity & Inclusion Top 100 index, ranking in the top three worldwide for the third straight year.

“Like Canada itself, Accenture employees represent a tremendous variety of cultures, ethnicities, beliefs, backgrounds and languages, and this rich diversity makes our company smarter and more innovative,” said Zahra Jadavji, managing director of inclusion and diversity at Accenture in Canada. “We are proud to be recognized for our commitment and passion to providing an inclusive, open and equitable environment from the top down for all individuals.”

New programs and initiatives that contributed to Accenture being recognized as a top employer include:

The final selections for Canada’s Top 100 Employers, determined by Mediacorp Canada Inc., the nation’s largest publisher of employment periodicals, represent the top-performing employers in eight criteria fundamental to company success and employee satisfaction: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere and Communications; (3) Financial Benefits and Compensation; (4) Health and Family-Friendly Benefits; (5) Vacation and Personal Time-Off; (6) Employee Engagement and Performance; (7) Training and Skills Development, and (8) Community Involvement.
