The International Future Leaders programme has a two-fold purpose, to increase the Adecco Group’s ability to retain and develop high potential, early-in-career talent and to create a strategic pool of high-quality internal candidates to feed the leadership pipeline.
Creating a pipeline of strong, commercial leaders with the skills, experience and passion to deliver tangible business performance, drive the pace of transformation and successfully foster a culture of innovation across the Adecco Group.
After an extensive evaluation and selection process from all countries within The Adecco Group the selected IFL participants are announced. The following 18 months are packed with a host of skills development workshops on a variety of topics along with the opportunity to work in multicultural teams on real time business challenges from the Group under the direct supervision of leaders/ directors allowing them the freedom to deploy the skills learnt and accrue feedback in real time.
Supporting young careers
The programme supports delegates in career moves into a new business area, function or geographical location thereby promoting the transferability of the skills learnt on the programme.
Shaping the future of leadership
During the programme the delegates are asked to lead a change or improvement project in their own area of work. The outcome of which is aimed at an exponential 10 x improvement. The added value from these projects undertaken by the delegates have proved the concept of the programme. From new sales strategies to increased client and community engagement, the return of investment of the 18-month programme is not only delivered during the programme but continues even after the programme all contributing to ensuring the skills to make the future work for everyone.
