Accenture announces an exclusive incentive for all workers as the technology giant sees robust growth in revenue
Accenture’s announcement was accompanied by results for the second quarter of sales of $12.1 billion, up 8 percent in US Dollars. New bookings for the company were $16 billion, up 13 percent from the same time last year. Accenture now expects its full-year sales to increase in local currency from 6.5 to 8.5%, up 4 to 6% from the previous forecast.
“This incentive recognises all Accenture people’s outstanding achievements and commitment to its customers during this tough year,” the company said in a statement today.
“With our excellent financial results for the second quarter we have returned to pre-pandemic overall growth, while continuing to take market share faster than before the pandemic. We’ve seen another quarter of solid, wide-ranging demand for our services across geographic markets and industries and provided record new reservations as well as excellent returns and free cash flow,” said Julie Sweet, Chief Executive Officer of Accenture.
PwC has revealed a similar one-time incentive for all of its workers in India earlier this month. The bonus of PwC will be equivalent to compensation for two weeks.
The incentives for workers are in line with the digital move during the COVID-19 pandemic, which has helped technological giants worldwide by increasing their sales.
