    The global professional services company has committed to hire 5,000 U.S. veterans and military spouses by 2020. The company is waiving its standard college-degree requirement for some positions and has set up special training courses for military candidates. Once in the door, Accenture employees can receive educational scholarships and all employees have access to a global learning portal with more than 50,000 classes. New hires learn the ropes in part by playing “Sky Journey,” a mobile game in which players manage and operate a virtual business. Read the Great Place to Work review here.
