Diversity

We are as diverse as the clients we serve

Diversity is embedded as one of Capco’s core values. Diversity of thought, background and culture create distinctive value for our clients and provide a more fulfilling work environment for the people we work with.

Capco has more than 1,400 employees in 15 countries. Their diversity of background and outlook is a critical asset in shaping the solutions clients expect from us and in allowing our employees to fully participate in the development of our global industry.

Capco is committed to creating an inclusive working environment through formal policies as well as specific initiatives. In 2011, we launched six employee networks — each with a partner sponsor — that focus on a specific area. These include:

  • Gender Network
  • LGBTQ Network
  • Religious Network
  • Ethnicity Network
  • Disability Network
  • Generations Network

Disability is our global Corporate Responsibility focus for 2012, with charitable-giving community efforts across the firm dedicated to helping organizations that focus on disability.

In 2011, Capco focused on gender initiatives, including celebrating the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day across the firm. We launched a formal mentoring scheme for our top female performers at the senior level to help guide them on the path to partnership, pairing eight of our top women with a board member. Marcia Wakeman, one of our current partners, was voted one of the 2011 Women Leaders by Consulting magazine. 2012 saw a continuation of this focus with celebrations around International Women’s Day in London, Frankfurt, Toronto, Bangalore and New York.

We place a strong emphasis on recruiting and attracting female talent. Currently, our workforce has increased by 15 percent in the last year and now includes female representation on our Global Executive Management Team. Capco also is an active member of Opportunity Now.

Capco welcomes employee feedback on topics such as diversity and provides open collaboration tools to make this possible.
