A leading provider of staffing and recruitment services, Swiss-based Adecco Group North America relocated its corporate headquarters from New York to Jacksonville, Florida. The project has created 185 jobs and a capital investment of $3.4 million. Adecco’s renovated facility will house positions across a number of departments, including marketing, finance, and real estate operations.
Bob Crouch, Adecco Group North America CEO said, “When Adecco made the decision to move our North American headquarters, we knew that Jacksonville was the right fit for our organization. As the leader in workforce solutions, we have a unique understanding of cities across the United States, and the economic growth taking place on a local level appealed to us greatly. We look forward to building our presence in Jacksonville and appreciate the efforts of Governor Scott and the economic development officials that made this move a reality.”
Governor Rick Scott said, “I am proud to announce that Adecco took a one-way ticket from New York to Florida to establish their headquarters in Jacksonville, creating 185 new jobs. Adecco’s investment in Jacksonville is further proof that our hard work to make Florida the global destination for jobs is creating more opportunities for our families to succeed. We will keep working every day to make our state the number one place to grow a business, and we look forward to welcoming even more job creators to Florida.”
Bill Johnson, Enterprise Florida CEO and president said, “This project is a huge win for the Jacksonville community. Not only are the 185 jobs a great addition to the area, but Adecco will serve as a great example for other world leading companies that Florida has the resources and strong partnerships for businesses to thrive. Under Governor Scott’s leadership, EFI has been able to truly promote our state as the perfect climate for businesses.”
This project would not have been possible without the close partnerships of Enterprise Florida, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, CareerSource Northeast Florida, Inc., City of Jacksonville and JAXUSA Partnership.
