MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO

Patrick De Maeseneire

"Work has a direct impact on the lives of hundreds of thousands of people every day. The importance of work and what we do to help people find jobs cannot be overstated. Work is a basic need; it should be a basic right for all people. We help individuals find work, support companies throughout their life cycle and make a positive contribution to society by sustaining employability."

Patrick De Maeseneire, CEO Adecco Group

STRATEGY

The world of work is constantly changing and Adecco is one of the leading forces shaping that change. With a growing demand for both flexible and skilled workforces we have two distinct approaches to the market.

For positions that require general skills, we offer our clients tailored solutions, focusing on industry know-how and cost leadership. This also means ensuring continuity and nurturing long-term relationships with associates.

To fill positions requiring specialised professional skills, we have experts who can find the right candidates. Our aim is to provide consecutive assignments, ensuring talent retention and skill enhancement for our associates.

In both approaches to the market, it is our goal to focus on operational excellence, specialisation and efficient delivery models.

As the global leader in HR services, we are aware that traditional patterns of employment will continue to evolve in the years to come. We therefore encourage present and future generations to see change as opportunity in its multiple forms. We invite people to accept tomorrow’s challenges with confidence and to join us in shaping the future of the workplace.
