This year’s survey polled about 12 million employees from more than 7,000 companies around the world to determine the World’s Best Workplaces. As the world’s leading HR solutions provider, inspiring talented people to join, stay and grow with the Group, by creating an engaging ‘Great Place to Work for all’, is fundamental to success.

According to the 2018 Great Place to Work® survey, the Adecco Group’s 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. They appreciate its inclusive management style and feel empowered in decisions which affect their jobs and work environment. Employees highlighted a positive nurturing environment that encourages personal development, and they were inspired by the company’s active community engagement aimed at fostering inclusion and diversity in the workplace.

“As a leader in the world of work, it is vital that the Adecco Group sets an example in the way we attract, retain, develop and empower our own people within a positive and inspiring working environment,” said Alain Dehaze, CEO of the Adecco Group. “We are delighted that this commitment has been recognised again in the global Great Place to Work ranking, because being a ‘great place to work’ is one of our core strategic priorities. First and foremost, the Adecco Group is a people company built on a diverse, expert international team that is brimming with the finest talent and driven by a shared purpose: to make the future work for everyone.”

The top five global ranking follows similar success for the Adecco Group in national Great Place to Work® tables for Belgium, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Norway, Spain, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

In order to qualify for the World’s Best Workplaces list, companies must feature in at least five national Best Workplaces lists, employ a minimum of 5,000 people worldwide with no less than 40 percent of that workforce based outside the company’s home country.
