In 2010, Adecco colleagues from around the world joined together locally and in global teams to complete a total of 228,002 km (which is more than five times around the world) for six selected foundations. The Adecco Group funded every kilometre 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 labour 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. All colleagues in more than 60 countries throughout the company are invited to participate in local biking events. In addition, 70 colleagues were trained to cycle up Mont Ventoux in France and completed the challenge on September 12th 2011.
