Tim Robinson, HR director for Accenture in the UK, said the company feels itis important to enter into the spirit of the World Cup and it recognises itsimportance to staff. The games will be shown on big screens in communal areas of the offices andbecause it is a global company with a number of overseas consultants based inthe UK, the firm will show all the matches, not just England games. Robinson said the company wants to turn a possible negative into ateam-building opportunity for its 7,000 staff. During the Cup, cafés at the Accenture offices in London, Manchester,Newcastle and Windsor will be selling ‘World Cup’ food with 10 per cent of the revenuegoing to charity. “Rather than looking at this event in negative terms of absenteeism, wewant to turn it into something positive. “By screening matches in all of our UK offices, staff can watch gamestogether, have fun and also raise money for charity at the same time,”said Robinson.
