Over the last few years, sponsorship has taken on a much more prominent role in the PR mix of companies across the world. Linking a company's name with individuals, organisations and events is an emotionally engaging form of communication. Sponsorship reaches parts of the public that other media, such as advertising, cannot. It gives an insight into the DNA of a company and its culture – the way its relationships are built, both inside and outside the organisation.
The goal of Adecco's sponsorship strategy is not only to increase brand awareness in selected areas, but also to add definition to the brand profile and increase brand equity. Experiencing the Adecco brand through sponsorships and partnerships enables internal and external colleagues, clients, agents and opinion leaders to gain a better understanding of what Adecco is about.
The core purpose of our sponsoring and partnership policy is to support individuals and organisations in activities relevant to our own area of expertise.
Our partnerships enable stakeholders to experience the Adecco way from a different perspective. We seek strategic links with institutions and events that can benefit from our expertise in developing and implementing HR solutions.
Adecco is also involved in initiating and partnering research initiatives in the human resources field. These are aimed at developing and sharing our expertise and knowledge.
Our partnership initiatives are part of our mission to help individuals and organisations achieve "better work, better life".
