Adecco Group and Compass Group honored for their workforce development programs

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. — August 7, 2017 — DeVryWORKS, the workforce solutions group within DeVry University, honored Adecco Group and Compass Group USA as its 2017 TEACH Partner Award recipients. The award recognizes a corporate partner who exemplifies the DeVry TEACH values (teamwork, energy, accountability, community and heart) while supporting their employees in a competitive environment and providing opportunity for them to learn, grow and succeed.

The Adecco Group is the world's leading provider of workforce solutions and their offerings fall into the broad categories of temporary staffing, permanent placement, career transition and talent development, as well as outsourcing and consulting. “Our goal is to be an employer of choice, not just a line on a resume but a community where colleagues stay and grow their careers,” said Courtney Abraham, senior vice president, Talent Management at Adecco. “Community is a value expressed at all levels of the organization and our front line leaders in the field set the cultural tone for a large portion of our colleagues.”

Compass Group USA is the global market leader in providing food and support services to customers in the workplace, hospitals, schools, arenas, museums, and more. “Our company believes developing our great people not only supports our business goals as outlined in Mapping Our Way Forward, but also leads to career growth and long-term associate satisfaction. You’re part of a company that is altogether great. From our great people to our great results, we’re a spirited and passionate team focused on doing our very best,” said Susan Vacchi, director, Learning Development Center of Expertise. DeVry’s TEACH values are:

Teamwork - We put the team first, appreciate diverse points of view, assume positive intent, collaborate and communicate openly

Energy - We move quickly, learn from mistakes, build positive spirit and always look for a better way

Accountability - We take ownership and initiative, demonstrate courage, and act with integrity

Community - We operate with a shared sense of responsibility and purpose, and enrich colleagues, students and the broader community we serve

Heart – We serve students and each other with passion, respect and care.

“At DeVry, these values define us, how we are guided and the decisions we make in support of our students and employer partners,” said Joe Mozden, vice president of DeVryWORKS. “As such, we want to recognize those companies that apply these values within the context of our partnership as their education provider. Congratulations to Adecco and Compass Group. We look forward to continuing our legacy of great service to you and all our corporate partners with TEACH as our guiding principle.”
