About Us

We apply our core values to support, nurture and provide the maximum benefit to our talented, committed people. These are the beliefs that underlie our culture:

  • Integrity
  • Service
  • Accountability
  • Dignity & respect
  • Operational excellence
  • Growing talent
  • Financial responsibility

The Adecco mission is to provide superior service to our associates and clients through best-in-class matching of associates to client positions.

With 70,000 associates on assignment every day, Adecco has an unmatched opportunity and responsibility to lead in the area of diversity and inclusion. We are committed to supporting initiatives that promote diversity and inclusion in all areas of our business and we have developed innovative diversity and inclusion practices in our workplace, our services and our solutions and employ them in our business interactions with our clients.

For example, in the area of Corporate Social Responsibility, we encourage our colleagues to participate in volunteer opportunities to give back to local communities. We also foster partnerships with community groups to give back to our communities while at the same time increasing our ability to attract talented, motivated and skilled employees from diverse backgrounds. Lastly, through our Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, we ensure that our colleagues, associates and our clients understand that diversity is a business priority at Adecco.

It is by making use of all the best available talent and resources that we add value to Adecco’s service offerings and secure an advantage over our competitors to further validate our claim as an industry leader. We seek the best and the brightest workforce for ourselves and our clients. It is with pride that Adecco aspires to recruit, retain and develop a diverse and inclusive workforce that meets the needs of an increasingly global marketplace.

Every day, Adecco helps people with disabilities find opportunities that emphasize their unique skills.

At Adecco, we enrich and strengthen the communities in which we live and do business through corporate responsibility – and one way we achieve this goal is helping people with disabilities find meaningful employment.

We prepare our staff to recruit people with disabilities as well as provide training for people with disabilities to increase their employability, including hosting our Disability Mentoring Day. In addition, we give our clients guidance on how to welcome someone with a specific disability onto their team and prepare the working environment as needed.

The Adecco Group Diversity Business Councils also builds partnerships with various organizations, including:

  • The National Business Disability Council (NBDC)
  • The Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF)
  • The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP)
  • Abilities, Inc.
  • The "Welcome Back Warriors" Project

We’re helping to build a workplace of diversity and inclusion – where people are recognized for their abilities and career goals have no limitations.

Over the past few years, Adecco has incorporated several “green initiatives” including forming a “Going Green” committee.
