CSR Communication on Progress 2013/2014

Our business & CSR
How CSR relates to our business

We feel it is our responsibility to help people to better work, better life by
creating opportunities in the labour market for all.

In our global organisation, spanning over 60 countries, CSR is part of our business strategy, overseen by the Corporate Governance Committee and the CEO and is the designated responsibility of management throughout our business operations.

CSR Governance within the Adecco Group

We participate in the Dow Jones Sustainability Assessment, the Carbon Disclosure Project, and the FTS4Good Index Series. And we also submit our Communication on Progress (CoP) on a yearly basis to the UN Global Compact and apply the Global Reporting Initiative GRI Guidelines.

Better work, better life

As the world’s leading provider of HR solutions, Adecco believes work is a basic human need. Our responsibility is to bring to life the principle of ʻbetter work, better lifeʼ amongst all our stakeholders. ʻBetter work, better lifeʼ is our job. Every day we help many companies to succeed by bringing together work teams with skills and attitudes that best match their needs. Every day, we ensure that around 650,000 associates worldwide have the best possible jobs. We help our employees and associates to succeed and grow by training, coaching and recognition of their achievements. In effect, they choose to work with us.

ʻBetter work, better lifeʼ is what we care about when Adecco teams worldwide volunteer their time and expertise in their communities to help to bring disadvantaged people into employment.

Work is the foundation of personal and family life, corporate and organizational success, social stability and economic development. Choice in the domain of work supports people to develop and apply their talents and it gives a purpose to peoples’ lives by building a sense of inclusion in society.
