Adecco continues to encourage diversity on Global Sports and Inclusion Day

Adecco continues to encourage diversity on Global Sports and Inclusion Day
May 23, 2018

Leading staffing and recruitment agency the Adecco Group is to host its second Global Sports & Inclusion Day (GS&ID) on Friday 15th June at which it will highlight its commitment to sporting inclusion while urging organisations to encourage healthier lifestyles among their workers to improve well-being, team spirit and performance.

As with with the first (GS&ID) in July last year, the day unites two of the Group’s global programs - Win4Youth along with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Athlete Career Program (ACP).

The IOC and IPC, in cooperation with Adecco, have supported more than 35,000 athletes from over 185 countries with career counselling and job placement through the ACP.

At the inaugural event of the Swiss GS&ID last year, Adecco Group Chief Human Resources Officer Shanthi Flynn stated “for businesses to be successful in a world where depending on others is critical, being inclusive is essential: diversity of capabilities, experiences and perspectives gives you an edge.

“Governments and companies need to focus on the skills, education and experiences relevant to the jobs of the future. Being agile and adaptable to change will be necessary for survival. If we focus on what people can do, not what they can't, and are creative about adapting jobs to accommodate differences, our organisations will move faster."

More than one billion people or one in five of the world’s population live with some kind of disability and every person at some point has a temporarily disability. This group can face prejudice on a daily basis, especially in the workplace.

Yet research shows that companies benefit when they invest in diversity: increased employee engagement and motivation; greater efficiency, more innovation and creativity, better service and customer satisfaction and access to new markets.

Alongside supporting the IOC and IPC Athlete Career Programme, Adecco placed more than 82,000 people with a disability in jobs around the world between 2004 and 2016.

Adecco in Australia will host a GS&ID luncheon for employees, elite athletes, partners and clients at Doltone House, Australian Technology Park, Everleigh, NSW 2015 from 1pm on Friday 15th June.
