Jelena Žikić was appointed, starting this month, as the new cluster manager of the newly formed Adecco Adriatic and Hungary region.

As we enter the new year, we are pleased to announce an important transition in the leadership team of Adecco Adriatic and Hungary.

With an extensive background in FMCG, Banking, Telecom, Security and HR Solutions, Jelena will be using her vast experience in order to continue asserting Adecco’s business leadership in the region. The fact that Jelena has led the internal HR community until now, offers a unique business growth opportunity for all stakeholders.

“I am thrilled to take on this challenge during this exciting time for Adecco and the changing world of work. Adecco is a company with strong core values, talented professionals and a healthy organizational culture. During all my professional experiences I’ve worked in industries that went through significant change and the current context is redefining the future of work. It is a great time to work in HR and to be part of this change. I look forward to sharing this experience and to build upon on the great work my colleagues have done so far. – said Jelena with regards to this new professional journey.”

It brings us great pleasure to have such a dedicated person in this key role, who is in line with all of The Adecco Group values, and we are looking forward to a very productive 2021.
