The Acxiom Story

 

It’s about more than making better marketing decisions. If it were that simple, we would have been crowded out years ago by the “me too” companies – the ones who claim to have more data and more insight than anyone else.

So what’s our story? We believe our value is in helping our clients do something they never dreamed possible. Giving them that certain moment when clarity becomes confidence. Finding a whole new customer segment. Reaching everyone who needs to be reached. Understanding those tiny market nuances. There’s more, of course, but these are the kinds of things that make the difference to our clients – the things that help them sleep at night.

Acxiom has delivered for clients for over 40 years in a fun, fast-paced work environment. It’s easy to understand why magazines from Fortune to Computerworld have ranked Acxiom as one of the nation’s best places to work.

Commitment To Diversity

At Acxiom, we believe in recruiting associates who want to become part of a diverse company culture that welcomes a wide array of behaviors, beliefs, practices and work processes. In order to maximize the performance of all associates, deliver significant return on investment, and create unparalleled value for our clients, an inclusive work environment is necessary. We are an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer, and we do not discriminate in recruiting, hiring, training, promotion or other employment of associates or the awarding of subcontracts because of a person’s race, color, sex, age, religion, national origin, veteran status, disability, sexual orientation, genetics or other protected status. Learn More

Acxiom Diversity Scholarship Program

Acxiom’s Diversity Scholarship Initiative offers up to five (5) $5000 scholarships and internships to benefit diverse students who are enrolled full-time in a post-secondary degree program in Computer Science, Computer Information Systems, Management Information Systems, Information Quality, Information Systems, Engineering, Mathematics and Statistics or related areas of study. The 2014-2015 Diversity Scholarship application process is now open. Learn More

Commitment to Veterans

Acxiom is committed to hiring those who help keep all of us free – veterans and members of the Guard and Reserve. Acxiom fully honors and enforces the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA).

We recognize the contribution that veterans and members of the Guard and Reserve have made, and continue to make, to our nation and communities. We also recognize that the skills learned in military service are often the exact skills needed to excel at Acxiom. Therefore, Acxiom actively seeks to employ veterans. Learn More

Valuing Differences

For all associates, we emphasize the importance of diversity through a number of initiatives. Internally, we publicize information about multicultural global holidays to help our associates learn about and appreciate the cultural practices of their colleagues. We also participate in industry forums and have provided scholarships to organizations that promote equal opportunity, including the Arkansas Industry Liaison Group and the Black Data Processing Associates, a nationwide group devoted to preparing minority professionals in our industry.

Acxiom also promotes diversity in the companies we choose to work with as subcontractors. Our comprehensive Supplier Diversity program helps ensure that minority- women- and small business-owned firms are given an equal opportunity to compete for business opportunities with our company.

An Inclusive Workplace

We believe in preserving a diverse work environment – not only for its own sake, but also to maximize the performance of our associates and create value for our clients. Acxiom is committed to maintaining an environment where associates feel recognized, inspired and challenged, and believe the company values and appreciates their contributions to the workplace. As a part of our core values, we believe teamwork is the key to our overall effectiveness because it allows us to leverage our diverse individual strengths and achieve great things together.
