The global leader in workforce solutions.
We have more than 50 years' experience in the staffing game. In that time, we've merged, acquired and grown our way to becoming the global staffing leader. The name "Adecco" itself actually came about back in 1996 when two of the world's top staffing firms, Adia and Ecco, merged. And while we appreciate our history, we're much more focused on the future-ours and yours.
We’re more than just a place to work.
Why be the world’s leading provider of recruiting and career service solutions if you can’t also make that world a better place to live and work? We pride ourselves on a culture that is welcoming and inclusive in the workplace but also engaged with the communities we serve.

Our Professional Business Lines, defined by occupational field, take us closer to both associates and clients. These closer relationships are vital to our ability to serve client needs and benefit all stakeholders, including associates. In a volatile labour market with both pressures and incentives to adopt portfolio careers, many individuals will value a supportive and highly informed partner through whom they are consistently able to access work that is right for them. This is the role we aspire to fulfil in relation to both current and potential associates.
This approach also enables us to concentrate and distribute industry insight, best practice and new initiatives, thus realising optimal economies of scale and leveraging our critical mass to advantage. The Professional Business Lines complement our established business in Office and Industrial services.
Our five Professional Business Lines are:
Adecco Information Technology
Adecco Engineering & Technical
Adecco Finance & Legal
Adecco Medical & Science
Adecco Human Capital Solutions
