IBM GBS works with two-thirds (65) of the World's 100 most Innovative Companies, as identified by BusinessWeek.

Truly global consulting



IBM's consultants can be found taking on engagements around the world. Outside of the U.S., India is IBM's largest country organization, employing more than 43,000 people in 14 cities. IBM is also pursuing a major initiative to support innovation in China, and it has continued to strengthen its foothold in Europe, especially in Ukraine, Ireland, Prague, Slovakia and Portugal.

IBM combines its brainpower with its world-class consulting and technology capabilities in several internal organizations to help it address critical business challenges-The Institute for Business Value and the Center for Business Optimization. The firm's methodologies of Component Business Modeling and On Demand Innovation Services also help bring its cutting-edge ideas to use at client sites.

A family-friendly environment

The magazine honored the firm yet again in 2006, naming Palmisano a "family champion" in recognition of his dedication to innovative programs for women. In addition, the firm implements positive work/life balance initiatives like a work-from-home policy and a travel schedule that ensures consultants are home on weekends.

To help hone their skills, the firm offers consultants job role and technical training, an academic learning assistance program and Global Campus, a web site with universal access to thousands of internal e-learning modules, so they can take the courses they need at their convenience. IBM also reimburses 100 percent of each employee's tuition and grants educational leaves of absence.
