The Adecco Group's shareholders have approved all the proposals by the Company's Board of Directors at its 2022 Annual General Meeting ("AGM"). Shareholders were not able to attend the virtual meeting in person, but could exercise their shareholder rights via the independent proxy and address questions on agenda items to the Board of Directors in writing ahead of the meeting, which was broadcast live.
