Adecco - Win4Youth

Providing and guiding people towards gaining the skills that improve their employability is a core competence of Adecco
Group. The range of our activities is vast and is dictated by local market situations and needs. We took our commitment to support skills development to a new level in 2010 with the launch of our Win4Youth programme. Win4Youth iniatiative is to bring to life our four core values: team spirit, customer focus, responsibility, entrepreneurship. 

In 2010, Adecco colleagues from around the world joined together locally and in global teams to complete a total of 228,002 km through running as a movement (which is more than five times around the world) for six selected foundations. The Adecco Group funded every kilo meter completed and the money raised was donated to India, Haiti, Chile, France, Spain and the USA. All foundations have a clear focus on educating and finally integrating young people into the labor market. One of the highlights of the Win4Youth 2010 initiative was the participation of 62 colleagues from all continents in the New York City Marathon on 7 November 2010.

After the enthusiastic response to our first initiative, we have found an exciting new challenge to again raise money for three foundations and live our core values actively. In 2011, we will join together again – this time on wheels.
