Denis Machuel, Adecco Group CEO, commented:
“The Group made strong progress this quarter, as we delivered on our commitment to return to a growth leadership position in the Adecco business. Our Akkodis GBU continued to perform well and the AKKA integration, including synergy capture, remains firmly on track. In LHH, our digital investments showed positive momentum with both Ezra and Hired reporting healthy growth.

Looking ahead, we are determined to accelerate growth across all GBUs, and bring our EBITA margin back to a leading level. With these priorities in mind, today I am unveiling a detailed operational plan to sharpen execution at the Adecco Group. Termed “Future@Work Reloaded”, the plan will accelerate implementation of our existing strategy, strengthen resilience in the face of external headwinds, and improve both operational and financial performance. I firmly believe in the quality of our assets, and with this plan, commit to unlocking our potential and driving the Group to achieve a ~6% EBITA margin.”
