Ed Broadhead was the 2017 Global CEO for One Month at the Adecco Group. After an extensive selection process in his home country of the UK and a global boot camp, he was selected out of 117,000 applicants worldwide. As Global CEO for One Month, he worked alongside Alain Dehaze, CEO of the Adecco Group. The Adecco Group is the leading HR solutions provider active in over 60 markets worldwide with its ecosystem of brands. As a Fortune 500 company, the Adecco Group is striving to make the future work for everyone and provide not only state of the art solutions to its clients but all of its customers, including more than 700,000 associates all around the globe. During the program, Ed got to shadow Mr. Dehaze during all his meetings and was asked to give feedback, debriefs and foster a culture of reverse mentoring.
Ed then joined the Adecco Group to drive the Group strategy for advanced analytics. Mid-2018 he took over as the new Head of Adecco Analytics, one of the Group’s digital ventures. He believes that the combination of analytics, business, and change management skills will be the route to realising business value with data and is building Adecco Analytics as a key pillar of the global analytics agenda.
Before arriving at the Group, Ed had just graduated as a Master of Engineering from the University of Cambridge with oil and gas industrial experience at Royal Dutch Shell.
