Athlete Career Programme

We support athletes with our core skills

Adecco Switzerland is a Swiss Olympic Leading Partner. As Switzerland's largest provider of Human Resource solutions, we contribute specialist know-how and our networks to this partnership. With the Athlete Career Programme "ACP", which was launched in 2006, we are committed to the professional development of the athletes and trainers of Swiss Olympic. The services are offered to current and former junior and elite athletes and trainers, aiming to help them make a smooth start or transition to their professional working career after a phase in their life that has been focused on sport.

Individual support for athletes

Adecco supports each ACP participant with personally focused coaching. With the online test system "Adecco Xpert", the athletes and trainers can test their professional knowledge and evaluate their fitness for the labour market and their level of training. In addition, the services of our partner Lee Hecht Harrison can be used for a detailed personality analysis.

The key to the success of the ACP programme is that Adecco already supports the top athletes during their active period with a targeted career and training grant, making the transition to a professional career considerably easier.

Promoting awareness for the potential of athletes

Among potential employers, Adecco promotes awareness for the vocational potential of former top athletes. Many of them have completed a vocational apprenticeship or a university degree parallel to their sporting career and in the process demonstrated extreme flexibility and resilience. By recruiting top athletes, companies can also position themselves as performance-oriented promoters of top sport in Switzerland and as socially committed partners – whether this is now during the athletes’ active career, or afterwards.
