Zurich, Switzerland, April 18, 2013: At today’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Adecco Group, shareholders re-elected all Board members. The Board of Directors’ dividend proposal of CHF 1.80 per share and all other agenda items were also approved.

Shareholders voted in favour of the Board of Directors’ proposal to pay a cash dividend of CHF 1.80 per share for the financial year 2012.
