Diversity partnerships

With 70,000 associates on assignment every day, Adecco Group has an unmatched opportunity and responsibility to lead in the area of diversity and inclusion. We are using our talents and resources to establish and sustain a diverse workforce and connect under-represented groups with employment. Joining the Adecco Group as an associate or employee opens the door to a vast range of career opportunities and we recruit and develop talent regardless of gender, age, race, national origin, language, beliefs, differing physical abilities or other factors.

Our Diversity program has four key components:

Diversity education

Ongoing communication and education are critical to building awareness and strengthening a sense of purpose. Viewing diversity as an asset is essential in cultivating a workforce that reflects the changing face of our society — and this begins with connecting individuals with information. We also educate our clients on how they can welcome diverse talent and prepare the working environment if needed, such as for individuals with disability.

Diversity recruitment

Our scale and wide range of resources helps us hire the most talented and capable staff available, regardless of gender, age, race, national origin, language, beliefs, differing physical abilities or other factors. We provide training to associates and candidates in order to develop diverse talent pools and enhance the re-employability of those who are out of work.

Supplier diversity

We are committed to developing alliances with Minority/Women Business Enterprises (MWBE) to provide opportunities for qualified firms and individuals. These relationships allow us to help connect diverse suppliers with economic opportunity and growth for all.

Community outreach

We encourage our colleagues to participate in volunteer opportunities to give back to local communities. We also foster partnerships with community groups to give back to our communities while at the same time increasing our ability to attract talented, motivated and skilled employees from diverse backgrounds.
