The RPO Baker’s Dozen is a critical source for prospective buyers of RPO solutions when considering or selecting an RPO service provider, and 2010 marks the sixth consecutive year Adecco RPO has been ranked in the RPO Baker’s Dozen.  In the two most recent years, Adecco RPO climbed from #11 in 2008, to #7 in 2009, to #2 in 2010, demonstrating Adecco RPO’s commitment to delivering world-class services to a growing portfolio of domestic and multinational clients.

“Adecco has had significant success very rapidly building a large and impressive client list in RPO.
