About The Adecco Group US Foundation

Founded in 2019, the Adecco Group US Foundation is committed to making the world of work a fairer, more accessible and better place. Our vision is of a world where all people are enabled to reach their full potential.

We are not a grant-giving foundation, but rather a group of dedicated colleagues committed to accelerating new solutions in the world of work. Our mission is to leverage the know-how, expertise and resources of individuals and groups to drive social value creation in the field of employment and skills. We help people find their path through programs that contribute to economic mobility, career progression and work equality. Our focus is on making the future work for everyone, like our parent company, The Adecco Group.

The Adecco Group is one of the largest talent solutions companies in the world, with more than 38,000 employees and 100,000 clients globally. Under The Adecco Group has three primary industry leading brands that provide an array of staffing and talent consulting services: Adecco Staffing, Lee Hecht Harrison (LHH) and Akkodis.

Our CEO for One Month US program receives thousands of applicants each year, and 10 outstanding candidates are chosen to compete in a fun but challenging “bootcamp” to select our official US CEO for One Month intern! Finalists also receive access to other exclusive internship opportunities at the Adecco Group and receive valuable leadership development education through workshops and interactions with our company leaders when they participate. Our US CEO intern will not only work with our US executive team, but they will also work on projects and challenges with other country CEOs for a truly global experience. Based on performance in the global projects, the top 10 country CEOs are invited to Europe, to compete in a final bootcamp for the opportunity to shadow the Global CEO of the Adecco Group, Denis Machuel, for another month. Make sure to follow the Adecco Group US Foundation on social media to stay up-to-date for 2024 program launch in October.


CEO For One Month 2023

June 2023 - July 2023 Jacksonville, FL
“I was honored to be named CEO for One Month USA for the summer of 2023! And it was indeed the highest honor of my life. This program was the most enriching, sharpening, and enlightening experience for my personal and professional growth. I spent my month shadowing top executives and experts in their respective fields while providing insight and ideas. But most of all, this experience felt like coming home! I found my career family! ”


May 2023 - June 2023 Jacksonville, FL
“The CEO for One Month program presented a fantastic opportunity to practice essential leadership skills through collaborative pitches, unexpected challenges, and team bonding. At finalist boot camp, I met dozens of senior Adecco Group leaders and learned firsthand about the company's operations and vision for human capital in the 21st century, both in Jacksonville and around the world. It was a privilege to work with nine other finalists whom Adecco had chosen among 27,000 applicants for their ambition, experience, and leadership potential. If you haven't applied yet, what are you waiting for?”
