Zurich, Switzerland, October 26, 2016: The Adecco Group, the world’s leading provider of workforce solutions, placed 7th on the ranking of the World’s Best Multinational Workplaces, according to Great Place to Work® and Fortune. A sense of purpose and making a difference to people’s lives was cited by Adecco Group employees as a key value, as well as openness, trust, warm informality, team spirit and opportunities for personal growth and impact.

Inspiring talented people to stay and grow with the Company is one of the Adecco Group’s strategic priorities. The relentless focus on delivering superior experience to the Adecco Group’s clients and candidates is a result of the hard work of leaders around the world to create an engaging ‘Great Place to Work’ for all employees. Attracting and retaining talented people is only possible within a culture of engagement, which in turn drives greater customer satisfaction and higher productivity.
