A proud history
Throughout our history, we’ve always been committed to development: both yours and our own. Over six decades, The Adecco Group has grown in strength, size and expertise. The earliest incarnation of The Adecco Group was in Switzerland in 1957 with the creation of Adia, by Henri Lavanchy Adia.
In 1996 Adia and Ecco merged to create Adecco.
We’ve grown through acquiring relevant brands and resources to service all our client and candidate needs, in an ever-changing marketplace. Our most recent acquisition in the UK was Penna in 2016, increasing our problem-solving capabilities.
