Adecco in France has informed the French Works Councils on planned Headcount reductions

Adecco S.A. ("Adecco"), the worldwide leader in HR services, today announces that Adecco in France has informed the French Works Councils on its plans to align the cost base to current market developments. As a consequence, Adecco plans to reduce its headcount in France by up to 600 full time equivalents (FTEs).

Zürich, Switzerland, Oct 16, 2008 

As announced in the Q2 2008 results release, aligning the cost base with revenue developments continues to be at the forefront of management's priorities.  Given the regulatory framework in France, which requires consultation with the French Works Councils, Adecco today informed official bodies on the necessity to align the cost base to current market developments.  As a consequence, Adecco France, Adia France and Adecco Corporate France plan to reduce the combined headcount by up to 600 FTEs.  Local management in France is committed to continue the social dialogue with trade unions and the French Works Councils.
In order to structurally improve the French business and to align the cost base to market conditions, Adecco expects to invest approximately EUR 35 million.  This investment will cover a full set of measures for the proposed reduction of FTEs.  At the same time, Adecco continues to structurally optimize the branch network in France and will use this investment to merge approximately 75 branches.
