Returning to the workplace and reshaping a new future of work is key to ensuring the health and wellbeing of workers and a strong economic recovery. The 'Safely Back to Work' Alliance initiated by Randstad, The Adecco Group and ManpowerGroup in March 2020 has successfully expanded its reach and network of participating partners and is now being led by our global industry association, the World Employment Confederation (WEC). As leader of this Alliance, WEC will continue to engage country federations, and private sector members, working closely with their local authorities and other relevant stakeholders, to support a safe return to work for workers and organizations globally, reinforcing the critical role of the private employment services sector in driving healthy resilient labor markets and economic recovery for countries, organizations and individuals alike in a post-Covid 19 environment. For more information or to join the growing Alliance, visit for more information.
