Team building activities in Accenture are called Campus 2 Corporate. It is a 2 day soft skill training program with an intention to familiarize the new joiners with the corporate environment. It imbibes a sense of teamwork within the new joiners and gives them a snapshot of the upcoming corporate life.

Happy Hours: These are monthly events which are undertaken in projects, when the entire team comes together to have cultural activities and games. Monthly Birthday celebrations: All the members of a team having their birthday in that month have a cake cutting ceremony. Team dinners/ Outings: The entire team goes out for lunch/ dinner with their senior leads and enjoy a good meal together.
Accenture also motivates its team members by giving them financial awards when the team outperforms in a part of a project. The above motive is achieved by giving the employees Celebrating Performance (C.P) points, which have an equivalence to a monetary value. The CP points can be reimbursed by an employee by accessing the online catalogue and redeeming the gift of their choice.
