The Adecco Group again among top five World’s Best Workplaces

The Adecco Group has achieved fifth position among the world’s multinational workplaces, according to the 2018 Great Place to Work® survey, reinforcing its reputation as one of the most attractive and rewarding global companies to work for.

This year’s survey polled about 12 million employees from more than 7,000 companies around the world to determine the World’s Best Workplaces. As the world’s leading HR solutions provider, we inspire talented people to join, stay and grow with the Group, by creating an engaging ‘Great Place to Work for all’ – this is fundamental to our success.

According to the 2018 Great Place to Work® survey, the Adecco Group’s employees feel they work for a company that offers a valuable service to society by providing people with work opportunities, as well as coaching and guidance throughout their career. They appreciate its inclusive management style and feel empowered in decisions which affect their jobs and work environment. Employees highlighted a positive nurturing environment that encourages personal development, and they were inspired by the company’s active community engagement aimed at fostering inclusion and diversity in the workplace.

Alex Fleming, Country Head and President of Staffing and Solutions, the Adecco Group UK and Ireland, said: ‘We’re delighted that we have ranked fifth on the 2018 Great Place to Work®’s World’s Best Workplaces list. This is testament to the value we place on employees at the Adecco Group, and the work we do in country to support, engage and develop our people. People are the cornerstone of our business, and it’s essential we put them first. We continue to listen to our colleagues and work towards building a culture that fosters current and future talent.’

The global ranking follows similar success for the Adecco Group in national Great Place to Work® tables for the United Kingdom, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Norway, Spain and the Netherlands.

In order to qualify for the World’s Best Workplaces list, companies must feature in at least five national Best Workplaces lists, employ a minimum of 5,000 people worldwide with no less than 40 percent of that workforce based outside the company’s home country.
