As HR Partner of the events, The Adecco Group, through its Adecco brand, will recruit 120 people for 2020 and about 300 for 2021 that will carry out many activities, ranging from technical assistance to logistics, hospitality and marketing. Working for the big events organised by Fondazione Cortina 2021 is an important opportunity to grow professionally and gain new experiences.
“We at the Adecco Group are fully aware that nowadays, in order to organise a great event, you need to adopt a comprehensive approach that focuses on the future, the local communities and sustainability through shared values like engagement and innovation,” said Andrea Malacrida, CEO of The Adecco Group Italia. “Besides the values of sport, we also share the same responsibilities with Cortina 2021: help people look to the future by working on innovation, respect and promotion of the local area and diversity”.
“We obviously needed an important HR Partner in order to organise a major event like the World Ski Championships, that is why we have chosen The Adecco Group, a leading HR solutions company,” added Valerio Giacobbi, CEO of Fondazione Cortina 2021. “We are certain that Adecco will work with us to achieve an important goal—put together a team of competent and passionate people who will help make the event a success”.
The Adecco Group has always upheld the values of sport, which is seen as a vehicle for unity and commitment. This is the reason why the Group has helped organise many important sporting events in Italy and around the world, such as the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Turin, the 2012 Summer Olympics in London and the 2000 UEFA European Football Championships co-hosted by Belgium and the Netherlands. In addition to the major sports events, however, Adecco has also sponsored prestigious football teams such as Milan, Inter, Roma, Udinese and Hellas Verona and has cooperated with CONI on the Athlete Career Programme. It was also the main sponsor of Olimpia Milano basketball team between the end of the 1990s and the early 2000s.
