Win4Youth 2010 – colleagues running
for a great cause

Win4Youth is an internal initiative involving all Adecco colleagues worldwide. It is one of the strategic pillars of our Corporate Social Responsibility and has drawn the admiration of world tennis champion Kim Clijsters.

In 2010, Adecco colleagues and invited clients from around the world took part in runs and recorded the distance covered to make a contribution to charitable works. For each kilometre, the Adecco Group donated $1 to a grand total, which was shared among six selected foundations in India, Haiti, Chile, France, Spain and the USA. All foundations have a clear focus on preparing disadvantaged young people for a successful transition into the labour market. Far exceeding the initial goal to run twice around the world, 228,002 kilometres were finally completed by 29,255 colleagues across 58 countries. One of the highlights of Win4Youth 2010 was the successful completion of the New York City Marathon by 62 colleagues on November 7, 2010. This is a truly global initiative that highlights the Adecco Group’s core values of team spirit, responsibility, entrepreneurship and customer focus. Win4Youth 2011 sees colleagues riding bikes to raise money under the watchful eye of cycling legend Eddy Merckx.
