Skills and integration are focal points of our corporate responsibility programme. We believe that the workplace is a key factor in social integration, contributing to the well-being of society at large.

In 2008, Anne-Marie da Costa Lopes, manager of Adecco’s Île-de-France agency, was contacted by Peugeot Citroën Automobile (PCA) with a request for a temporary production worker for its plant in Aulnay-sous-Bois, on the outskirts of Paris. The chosen candidate, Patrick Bayiha, a Cameroon national, trained and worked at the plant for nine months. The feedback from PCA was so positive, Adecco decided to offer him funding for three CACES modules. This earned Patrick a certificate of proficiency in the safe operation of equipment, qualifying him as a forklift truck driver. In 2009, Adecco placed him with Faurecia, a subcontractor of PCA, initially on a temporary basis. After nine months, he was offered a CDI employment contract with an unlimited term. Adecco also helped Patrick resettle his family in an apartment close to his work.
