Increasing visibility for national staffing firm

Posted by Jason Mudd

Adecco Group


Adecco Group (formerly MPS Group), a worldwide staffing firm, needed to promote its brand in local markets as a major player in the staffing industry. This national PR campaign raised corporate awareness and earned target national news coverage for the brand. As a result of the campaign, Adecco received more than eight times its return on investment in news media coverage alone and gained awareness for more than eight specialty staffing divisions.



The business challenge

Worldwide staffing firm MPS Group, now Adecco Group, struggled to translate its brands into its local markets as a major player in the staffing industry. They needed a national PR campaign to promote its company's units' leading specialists among employment candidates and employers to reach more consumers and companies. They hoped the power of PR could change the conversation.

The solution

This campaign positioned Adecco’s leaders as subject matter experts through targeted earned news media coverage among its 250 local branches, industry trade media, and national news media to reach candidates (consumers) and employers (companies). The campaign focused on raising corporate awareness, earning target national news coverage, as well as managing crisis communications.




I can't imagine that any firm could have gotten us as much coverage as Axia... Axia makes us feel like we're the most important client."

- Tyra Tutor SVP, Corporate Development, Adecco Group


The results

For more than a decade, this campaign delivered outstanding PR results for Adecco, including:

  • Delivering eight times the return on investment on news media coverage
  • Increasing awareness, understanding, trust, and consideration for more than eight specialty staffing divisions, including Modis (IT staffing), Idea Integration (IT solutions), Special Counsel (legal staffing), and Soliant Health (medical staffing), among others
