At the Adecco Group in North America, we are building a culture where talent matters, not labels, and where everyone has a chance to be part of the world of work. We celebrate the countless ideas and experiences that shape us as individuals and as an organization. Our vision and culture are inspired by our employees who are inclusive and proud of who they are, and we value the unique contributions they bring to work every day.

As the workforce solutions leader, we believe our culture of inclusion enables us to best serve the needs of our clients and positively impact the lives of our associates and students. Together as one, we are the Adecco Group, and we are committed to making the future work for everyone.

Our Commitment in the Workplace

Delivering Diverse Talent for Our Clients

The Adecco Group and its subsidiary brands are all equal opportunity employers, committed to meeting our clients’ diversity priorities through initiatives for inclusive recruiting and hiring.

Our colleagues regularly attend and recruit our potential associates from minority conferences and networking events not only locally but nationally.

We hold memberships with many national minority professional organizations, including:

  • The National Urban League
  • The National Coalition of 100 Black Women
  • Abilities, Inc.
  • STEM Connector
  • American Society of Women Accountants
  • National Association of Black Accountants (NABA)
  • American Society of Women Certified Public Accountants (ASWCPA)

In addition to a strong networking presence among diverse organizations, we routinely recruit from colleges, universities, vocational, and trade schools.

  • We engage with school newspapers, career opportunity offices, fraternities/sororities, civic organizations, and minority alliances.
  • We also participate in internship programs designed to assist minority college students in gaining experience in the workforce.

Through these efforts, we provide our clients with a deep bench of diverse and minority candidates for a wide variety of roles.

Building a Corporate Culture of Inclusion

During these challenging times, we’re all learning more each day about the value of not only welcoming but acting upon a multitude of perspectives.

Early in 2020, our global CEO Alain Dehaze committed our company globally to be an inclusive environment. For us, that begins with listening.

In response to the ongoing struggle for civil rights in 2020, we hosted a series of candid listening sessions with our colleagues so our leadership could understand the challenges facing diverse employees both at work and at home.

What we learned inspired us to take action within weeks:

  • We created the Adecco Group North America Diversity, Engagement, and Inclusion Committee with executive committee sponsors Corinne Ripoche and Sergio Picarelli to drive future action and education at all levels of the company.
  • We recruited members for that committee from all brands and roles in our organization.
  • Our US brand presidents attended a workshop on Understanding Systemic Racism to foster proactive awareness of the attitudes that impact diverse individuals.
  • 5,000+ colleagues, associates, and clients attended an inclusion workshop led by Dr. Steve Robbins which challenged our assumptions about how fairly we perceive and treat other people.

In the coming months, we are broadening our dedication to inclusion by building and strengthening community partnerships, fostering dialogue between all our colleagues, and further deepening a learning culture for diversity topics.
