We are serious about our commitments and hold ourselves accountable for our progress towards our goals and commitments.


We remain committed to continuously strengthening what we measure and disclose in line with evolving expectations and regulation and in conversation with key stakeholders.

Reporting on our progress


At the Adecco Group, we have a long-standing commitment to reporting on our progress, demonstrating how we contribute towards creating more prosperous, fulfilled societies and a more sustainable relationship with our planet.


We have published a stand-alone Sustainability Report since 2008 and have included relevant elements into the Annual Report ever since. This builds on the recognition that companies that hold themselves accountable to their stakeholders and increase transparency will be more viable – and valuable – in the long-term. To reflect our integrated approach to sustainability and holistic understanding of stakeholder value creation, since the 2019 Annual Report we have folded the Sustainability Report completely into the Annual Report.


We have also published our first Tax Transparency report, which explains our tax principles and actions to remain tax compliant in the markets we operate in. It also states our tax contributions to the economies of our markets worldwide; approximately half of all payments are payroll and social security taxes.
