Accenture is a global network with Innovation Hubs in 10 major cities across the United States. Each Hub is home to multidisciplinary teams of designers, developers and other technology experts who work with clients to investigate and bring to life new ideas. Bringing together the company’s full suite of innovation capabilities, each Hub taps the local talent technology ecosystem, including startups, universities and industry leaders. Each is connected to more than 100 Accenture locations around the globe to seamlessly bring the best of Accenture’s global investments and insights to its clients on the ground.
Accenture recognizes the important role professional apprenticeships can play in closing the skills gap in the United States, providing under served groups greater access to innovation economy jobs and helping reskill workers whose jobs have been, or will be, disrupted by technology.
In 2017, Accenture and Aon cofounded the Chicago Apprenticeship Network–partnering with employers like McDonald’s, Zurich Insurance and Walgreens to jump start their professional apprenticeship programs. There are now 400+ apprenticeships committed across 23 member organizations, with a plan to grow to 1,000 by 2020.
