Led by Nikki Black, hyphen’s BBP team staged workshops for people keen to benefit from hyphen’s knowledge of the recruitment marketplace in a bid to return to work, after facing certain challenges in their lives.

Adecco HQ has launched a challenge for all colleagues across our 60 countries to run – our goal is to circle the world 24 times until we clock up 1 million km. For every 5 km  Adecco Global will donate one US dollar to charitable foundations so the more we run the more money we’ll raise to educate children so that when the time comes, they are better prepared to find work.
