Recent Accenture Growth Drives Demand for Talent

Accenture hiring ran at a clip of 50,000 new employees in Q1. To put it into perspective, that number is greater than the total number of employees at McKinsey, Bain, and BCG! The firm also promoted 90,000 existing employees. This reaffirms the company’s status as top dog of technology consulting.

Julie Sweet, CEO of Accenture, credits the firm’s success, in part, to its commitment to training. Accenture spends $250 million on training each quarter to build up its employees’ skills.

The need for digital transformation remains a strong source of demand for Accenture services. For instance, the firm recently announced a collaboration with Microsoft to assist Mount Sinai in a five-year transformation of their health system to the cloud. Highlighting other digital strengths, Accenture recently ranked No.1 in enterprise blockchain services in a report by the analyst firm HFS Research.

According to a LinkedIn report, management consulting as an industry attracts top talent because of its willingness to pay well, have good working conditions, and ability to rally people around their missions.
