Adecco Group UK Partners With ParalympicsGB

Adecco Group UK & Ireland, a division of the world leader in human resource solutions, has announced the signing of a charity partnership with ParalympicsGB, the registered charity responsible for Britain's teams at the Paralympic Summer and Winter Games.

The partnership will see ParalympicsGB become Adeccos official charity, and complements the firms role as the Official Recruitment Services provider for London 2012, as well as reinforcing Adeccos ongoing commitment to supporting and encouraging diversity both within the workplace and the wider community.

With London 2012 now less than three years away, the countdown is on, said Susan Yallop, Director at Adecco. We are delighted to have the opportunity to support an organisation which not only works for such a worthy cause but is also one that shares our core values of determination, integrity, responsibility and developing talent.

As the body responsible for selecting, preparing, entering, funding and managing Britain's teams at the Paralympic Games, sponsorship funding will assist in all elements of ParalympicsGBs activities in the lead up to the Paralympic Games in 2012 and the Paralympic Winter Games in 2014. As part of its commitment, Adecco will also initiate a fundraising programme to raise donations for and awareness of ParalympicsGB.

The standard of competition in Paralympic sport continues to reach new heights every year, so making sure the team is best prepared to perform has become an increasingly challenging responsibility, said Phil Lane, CEO of ParalympicsGB. Adeccos ongoing sponsorship commitment will play a vital role in helping us provide Britains finest disabled athletes with the support and resources they need.

ParalympicsGB aims to send the best prepared Great Britain Team to each Paralympic Games, and relies primarily on sponsorship and fundraising for its funding. The organisation is responsible for managing all elements involved in sending the GB Team to the Paralympic Games, including providing the optimum and most cohesive performance environment for both athletes and support staff.

Its mission statement includes a commitment to performance excellence by members of the GB team at key international sporting events as well as maintaining second place in the Paralympic medal table (ParalympicsGB have finished second at the past three Summer Games).

As the official recruitment services provider for London 2012, Adecco supports London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) in filling a wide range of positions between now and 2012, as well as helping LOCOG employees with outplacement services once London 2012 has concluded.
