The Adecco Group US Foundation is passionate about the role of education in closing the skills gap. Through work-related programs, partnerships, and investments, the Foundation aims to create greater economic opportunity for American workers.

Millions of jobs go unfilled because employers are unable to find employees to hire with the skills they need to run their business. At the same time, many Americans are underemployed; while they have the desire to learn new skills, they lack the necessary resources for training programs.

We aim to help close that skills gap by leveraging the strengths and capabilities of two powerful partners – Penn Foster and Percipio.

CEO for One Month

Our aim is to find creative, innovative leaders among today’s college students and offer them the career opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to spend a month with a country CEO and senior leadership.

It starts with students applying and presenting their credentials as to why they should be selected as one of the finalists to participate and compete in a rigorous boot camp. At the end of boot camp, only one of the finalists will be chosen as CEO for One Month and receive a one month paid highly-compensated internship. From there, the student will have the opportunity to compete with other CEO for One Month finalists from around the world for the global CEO for One Month, based in Zurich, Switzerland.

In 2021, we received over 14,000 applications for the program. You don’t need a specific degree or to be particularly good with numbers or languages, you don’t need to be well-connected or have a large following on social media. Instead, we are looking for genuine personalities, enthusiastic thinkers, who are willing to learn every day, adapt to the fast-changing world of work and step out of their comfort zones when needed.

Since the program’s inception, hundreds of our candidates found their home within the Adecco Group after going through their boot camps or finishing their shadowing. Whether your career interest is in IT, HR, data analysis, management or any other field, there is a good chance the program will help you to get your “foot in the door” of the Adecco Group or any of our clients or partners!

The CEO for One Month program is held annually and typically kicks off in late January. Follow the Adecco Group on social media to stay informed on the program.
