Accenture works with VSO on its corporate volunteering programme

Accenture’s Voluntary Services Overseas/Business Partnership Scheme (VBP) sends its consultants to work with nonprofits and governments on business, management, and technology issues.

Employees with more than two years experience take unpaid leave of absence for between 1 and 12 months and receive a financial subsidy from Accenture and a local salary from Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO), the nonprofit volunteering intermediary that processes placements and manages travel and logistics. Drawing employees from 16 Accenture offices around the world, the programme can deploy volunteers in up to 34 countries, based on VSO’s countries of operation. In early 2007, Accenture had more than 20 individuals in VSO programmes.
