“CEO for One Month” is an initiative that offers you the possibility to develop and showcase your leadership potential, to learn what it takes to succeed as a business leader and to acquire the skills and the experience needed to get your foot on the career ladder.
Since 2015, “CEO for One Month” has grown from 32,000 candidates to over 140,000 in 2021, despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the last 7 years, nearly 300 talented young people have had the opportunity to shadow the Adecco Group leadership in their country of residence for one month, experiencing first hand what it takes to run a country branch of major international company.
The program runs at 2 levels, one at National Level and second Global level.
- At National Level: One exceptional candidate is also chosen each year to shadow the Country Manager for one month shadowing and working side by side and experience the daily life of a senior business leader.
- At Global Level: Ten outstanding national participants are then selected for a Global Bootcamp and one is chosen to work alongside and shadow the Global CEO of the Adecco Group for another month.
Following their time with the country managers, a number of participants of the program stay with the Adecco Group, kickstarting their career!
