Labour standards

In 2012, the French economy had been stagnant for close to five years. The country’s economic and social position was severe, from the decline of industry and the state of public finances to the number one concern of the French people: unemployment, which was at a 15-year high. Adecco, the leading provider of HR solutions globally and in France, was determined to tackle the problem head on, by launching a three-year job-creation initiative: ‘La Chaîne du OUI’. The aim? To create 270,000 sustainable new jobs, motivating clients, our employees, and other organizations across France to step up to the challenge.
