What you should know

Adecco supports the development of its employees in many creative ways, allowing people to stretch themselves and explore interests that will make them more well-rounded.

Through the CEO for One Month program, young people can gain unique work experience for a month, as the CEO of The Adecco Group. Participants go through a bootcamp-style competition in order to determine a winner. In 2017 there were 1608 registrations, which were ultimately narrowed down to ten finalists after multiple selection rounds. Ultimately, one winner was chosen to be named CEO for One Month.

Another way Adecco promotes growth is through its annual training scholarship program for all employees, aimed at 100% of businesses, regions and group lines. In 2016 alone, more than 200 colleagues applied for a scholarship, and 100% of the applications were granted. This scholarship program, in addition to being a commitment to professional growth and development, is also a measure of flexibility, allowing employees to choose paths of study that interest them most.

In Italy, the Adecco Group created the AmbizioneDonna program focused on women in the company. The program features a blog that advertises various stories, events, and trainings available to participants, including a pilot Female Empowerment program that hosted 32 women in its first phase.
