Life at Avanade
Be your best self and do your best work
Distinctive experiences. Limitless learning. Ambitious growth. That’s what you get when you choose to join and build your career at Avanade. Step into a flexible, people-first environment that empowers you to be yourself, do your best work, and accomplish amazing things.
Life comes first
There’s more to life than work. We’re great at what we do because we’re out in the world, experiencing all it has to offer. We know the joy of family dinners, the thrill of outdoor adventures, the connection of volunteering in our communities and the importance of self-care. We can’t be who we are without a flexible culture that allows us to log on when and where we work best. Because we know our best self does our best work. That’s why Avanade embraces a human-focused, flexible approach, centred on choice and individual preference when it comes to where, when, and how we work. Together, we’re creating a globally consistent employee experience that underpins our commitment to creating a culture for growth that puts our people first.
We grow YOU
We believe becoming is superior to being. Nice words, but what does that mean exactly? None of us are ever done learning, and if you’re at Avanade, you have a natural drive to explore what’s beyond your comfort zone. We cultivate that drive through training and certification opportunities. Whether you’re interested in learning something new or growing an existing skill, we have the resources to make it happen.
Inclusion & Diversity at Avanade
Diverse teams and an inclusive environment are critical to innovation and future growth. Our mission is to create an environment where employees can do their best work, and diverse perspectives spur innovation and growth for our clients and people. We are proud to be a pioneer in combining emerging technologies and human ingenuity to change things for the better and build diverse communities worldwide.
Avanade has pursued a deliberate and purpose-driven strategy around inclusion & diversity (I&D) since our founding in 2000. In the last two decades, our I&D strategy has grown broader and deeper, taking on an intersectional lens. If our inclusive culture doesn’t consider all races, gender identities, ethnicities, sexual orientations, disabilities, ages, religions – all people and all phases of life – it falls short.
When we talk about diversity, we need to include disability
Our mission is to continually promote inclusion, sense of belonging, equal access for our members and make Avanade a safe place to thrive.
Our aim is to normalise the conversation about disability and neurodiversity in the workplace, and to equip us all with the knowledge to become more #DisabilityConfident.
As an employer of choice, we understand the importance of having an ecosystem that supports our employees with disabilities so that they can do their best work. By prioritizing accessibility, we’re also tapping into an amazingly skilled talent pool that can often be overlooked.
To create an inclusive workplace – and an inclusive world – we need to make sure we incorporate disability. We’re on this journey together, and together, we do what matters.
Employee Networks and Support Groups
At Avanade we have several Employee Networks (ENs) and support groups to help us foster an inclusive workplace environment. These communities welcome everyone at Avanade as members and offer leadership development opportunities to those interested in playing an active contributor role as part of their committees.
DiversAbility is our Disability Inclusion Employee Network and we have chapters in all our Areas (Europe, North America and Growth Markets). This network connects and supports colleagues with disabilities and long-term health conditions as well as caregivers. It also welcomes allies who play a key advocacy role.
We also have support groups for Cancer, Long Covid, Neurodiversity and Menopause.
