Excellence Awards

Successful business operations imply we can help more individuals in their working careers and provide the flexibility and efficiency companies need for sustainable success and to create employment opportunities. Based on this and to heighten every employee’s commitment to our success, in 2010, we ran our first Excellence Awards. The Adecco Group Excellence Awards recognise people, teams and countries that achieve outstanding performances whilst applying our core values of Team Spirit, Customer Focus, Responsibility and Entrepreneurship as well as our leadership principles: Cool Head, Warm Heart and Working Hands.

At our Management Conference in January 2011, eight teams were awarded for their outstanding contribution to the Adecco Group:
