The world of work is undergoing unprecedented changes, with Covid-19 accelerating the existing megatrends. At the Adecco Group, we will continue to be the preferred partner for all HR solutions. With our unique 360° solutions offering, we have the opportunity to lead the way in shaping the new future of work. Our Future@Work strategy represents the next chapter in our evolution and firmly places our purpose at the centre of everything we do. By making the future work for everyone we want to enable sustainable and lifelong employability for individuals and empower organisations to optimise their workforces.
Building on the achievements of our previous cycle, our new strategic vision aims to enable sustainable and lifelong employability for individuals and empower organisations to optimise their workforce. This will create opportunities to improve our growth and margin, and to further embed digital at the core of our business.
Our workforce solutions offering is unparalleled in its global scale, local knowledge, consistent quality and innovative use of digital tools. We place 600,000 associates into roles daily, enabling flexibility and agility for our clients. As a career partner, we support the employability of our associates and are committed to their success.

We help organisations and individuals succeed in the evolving world of work by transforming workforces, building new skills and capabilities and matching talent with opportunity. As both an advisory firm and solutions delivery partner, we support organisations across the HR spectrum, and individuals across their career journey. We specialise in building employability, and optimising talent and human capital, through our three specialist areas of Reskilling & Upskilling, Workforce Transformation, and Talent Placement. Our leading global brands include LHH, General Assembly, Spring, and Badenoch and Clark.
We deliver cross-industry expertise in technology and digital- engineering consulting, talent services and skilling to enable digital transformation and accelerate innovation. We specialise in bringing expertise to organisations in cognitive technologies, digital transformation, cloud and IT infrastructure, smart ecosystems and the so-called fourth industrial revolution (or Industry 4.0) which is being brought about by the ongoing automation of traditional manufacturing and industrial practices, using modern smart technology. Our key focus sectors are: automotive & transportation; environmental & energy; software, internet & communication; financial services; and industrial manufacturing.
Four Sustainabilty priorities
To achieve our purpose, our four strategic sustainability priorities focus on where we can most effectively drive impact. As a talent solutions and advisory company, that ultimately means improving employability and providing access to work.
Skilling and enabling Workers
Working closely with our clients and other partners to help address talent shortages and skills imbalances, enabling workers to gain necessary skills as they progress through their careers, and preparing underserved populations for the labour market.
Attracting, engaging and retaining talent
Creating the enabling environment for our people to thrive and realise their full potential. Anticipating and addressing their needs, recognizing and rewarding them for their commitment, and providing them with a fulfilling career path.
Promoting diversity and inclusion
Using our expertise and energy to improve everyone’s chance of being part of the world of work. Promoting an accessible, positive, respectful, inclusive and healthy work culture, united towards a common purpose.
Driving responsible digital Transformation
Embracing the potential of the digital transformation to help grow employment, improve working conditions, enhance matching, and reduce the frictions that prevent individuals from entering the labour force. At the same time, treating the security and privacy of data entrusted to us as top priority.
Evolving our approach for the new world of work
Last year marked the end of the Group’s previous strategy cycle, and the transition to ‘Future@Work’. It represents a natural evolution and is intended to guide the Group for the next three to five years and beyond. The achievements of the previous ‘Perform, Transform and Innovate’ strategy cycle have helped lay the foundations for the ongoing transformation of the company, while positioning the business for profitable growth and broader stakeholder value creation.
Operating discipline, strong cashflow generation, and a progressive dividend.
