The Adecco Master Vendor Program (MVP)

The Adecco Master Vendor Program (MVP)

The most valuable way to improve your workforce

Adecco’s Master Vendor Program (MVP) offers customizable solutions for a variety of contingent labor needs and
workforce issues.

What makes our MVP offering such a versatile solution? In addition to the program’s scalability and flexibility, we take responsibility for every aspect of the client’s contingent workforce program, regardless of their pain points. We work to understand how you will measure the success of your program and stand ready to be evaluated quarterly on our performance.

Just as no two businesses are alike, no two Adecco MVP service delivery models are alike. We work with our clients to develop and implement a customized tailored program designed to suit the needs of their business and help them achieve their goals. We also offer a single point of contact, something that a traditional contingent workforce model does not.
