Inspiring talented people to join, stay and grow with the Company, by creating an engaging ‘Great Place to Work for all’, is fundamental to success.

Creating an environment of positive employee engagement is a key strategic priority for us to achieve the goal of ‘making the future work for everyone.’ As a 360-degree HR solutions provider, we lead by example by developing innovative successful programmes that attract, retain and develop the best talent in the industry. Our business depends on the passion and ability of our people to deliver a great service to our clients, candidates, partners and to their fellow colleagues”.

The 2018 Great Place to Work® results show that the Adecco Group employees feel they work for a company that offers a valuable service to society by providing people with work opportunities, as well as coaching and guidance throughout their career. Employees appreciate the inclusive management style and feel empowered in decisions which affect their jobs and work environment. Characterised by a feeling of family, a positive nurturing environment encourages employees to develop supported by management and collaborative teams. They are also inspired by the company’s active engagement in the local communities aimed at fostering inclusion and diversity in the workplace.
