Our mission is to make the future work for everyone, this is why Social Responsibility is one of the most important activity fields for Adecco.
As one of the world’s largest human resources services companies, the Adecco Group aims to raise awareness of the importance of volunteering and social responsibility. Our Win4Youth programme is just one of our programmes to set an example for other companies and build a better future.
The aim of the programme is to provide Adecco employees with the opportunity to support disadvantaged children and adults in their personal sporting activities to improve their employability and job prospects.
Through our Win4Youth app, Adecco employees collect hours and kilometres of sporting activity, for each of which the Adecco Group donates 1 Swiss franc to Plan International, a non-profit organisation that works to educate disadvantaged youth and improve their employment prospects around the world. In this way, each one of our employees contributes individually to our greater goal: to make the future accessible to all.
Through our Win4Youth programmes and sporting events, we provide a great opportunity not only to do good together, but also to build team spirit and raise awareness of the importance of mental and physical health.

The Adecco Group has launched https://www.adeccojobsforukraine.com, a free online job search platform to help people displaced by the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, with more than 1,650 companies and over 5,500 Ukrainian refugees registered. We are pleased that more than 2,500 of them have already found jobs.
Alain Dehaze, Managing Director of the Adecco Group, said about the programme: “For more than a decade we have been working to support refugees from many countries, including Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq, and to integrate them into the labour market. We are now taking our support to the next level, enabling refugees from Ukraine to bridge any skills gaps through practical training to improve their job prospects. I urge business leaders to get involved in this initiative, because if we work together, we can make a real difference to the lives of many people. I would also like to express my deep appreciation to the companies that have already joined Jobs for Ukraine and opened their doors to refugees.”
In order to bridge the gap between the current skills of refugees and the needs of companies looking for workers, the Adecco Group has mobilised the expertise of the companies within the Group: General Assembly, Adecco Training and LHH experts and resources. In addition, through the Adecco Academy, we offer personalised, face-to-face online training and self-training opportunities in digital skills and soft skills, as well as in business and language.
