Three years ago, Accenture began its

transformation to become the leading provider of Digital Services - and the

most digital organization in the world. They embarked on a journey to

massively disrupt themselves and revolutionize talent practices for the digital

age. At the same time, they recognized the need to have an impact beyond their

walls to truly deliver on the vision of innovating to change the way the

world works and lives. With leaders at all levels driving the change,

the talent agenda became the business agenda. They began to create a People

First culture focused on Innovating in the New. Today, they are

the fastest growing digital agency in the world, have 450,000 people

representing five generations, hire more than 100,000 people each year –

including 1100 in Canada this fiscal year - and have made a public commitment

to achieve gender parity by 2025.

Debra Giesen will highlight the market forces

impacting organizations today, why companies are disrupting their talent

practices, and how Accenture is innovating to create the most “truly human” organization

in the digital age.
