Temp Agency Review: Adecco



According to the Adecco Web site, the company was formed with the merger of Adia and Ecco in 1996: "Two of the world's top three personnel services firms, with complementary geographical profiles, merge to form a strong global leader with annualized revenues of over € 5.4 billion. Operations are combined to form a global network of 2,500 branches. The new Company has an exceptional range and quality of services. The core staffing business places around 250,000 people in work each day." A few years later, the company acquired Olsten Staffing, becoming the largest placement and recruiting firm in the United States.
