Our Strategy

Our strategy was designed to address the megatrends transforming the world of work. Since then, increased political and economic volatility and the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic have accelerated many of the shifts already underway. In the developed labour markets, 2022 was characterised by a global scarcity of talent, the need to upskill workers to navigate the green and digital transitions, and the rise of the human-centric organisation.

Rising to meet the forces reshaping the world of work


million careers enabled annually

organisations supported with their human capital needs

Every year, our 30,000 colleagues worldwide enable millions of people to succeed in the world of work, and support more than 100,000 organisations with their human capital needs. We upskill and reskill more than half a million people annually, enhancing employability and accelerating careers. We build and incubate capabilities in areas where persistent skills shortages exist and connect that talent to organisations to power their success.

As a leader in the world of work, we have taken a leadership role in advancing the HR sector. From ensuring responsible and ethical business practices, to advocating for a new social contract that protects all workers, and all forms of work – permanent, temporary or freelance. These are just a few of the ways we are proud to be leading the industry forward.
The Adecco Group works in the areas of workforce solutions, talent solutions and technology solutions, and operates three Business Units: Adecco, Akkodis, LHH.


The Future@Work strategy aligns our businesses to capture the opportunities created by these trends. A cornerstone of our strategy was the formation of our Global Business Units (GBUs). Adecco, LHH and Akkodis, each with their own bold vision, contributing to – and benefiting from – the Group’s position as the world’s leading talent partner. By increasing our exposure to higher-growth, higher-value and tech-led solutions we are focused on improving the quality of earnings for the Group in a sustainable way.
Adecco is a global leader in workforce solutions, offering flexible placement, permanent placement, outsourcing and managed services across all sectors.
Akkodis powers the Smart Industry transformation globally with digital and engineering services across Consulting, Solutions, Talent and Academy.
LHH helps future-proof organisations and careers by building the right capabilities, delivering talent solutions and enabling workforce transformation.
