[KING OF PRUSSIA, PA] – May 30, 2019 – Ricardo Layun, Vice President, Customer Care Services of Radial, a bpost group company, served as a guest judge alongside the Adecco Group’s senior executives and other guest judges in their annual ‘CEO for One Month’ program. Now in its sixth year, this program is a unique opportunity for one talented individual to become the Adecco Group’s 2019 ‘CEO for One Month’ in the U.S., a paid internship shadowing the organization’s senior leaders and learning the ins and outs of running a Fortune 500 company.
After evaluating a competitive pool of more than 17,000 applications representing 300 colleges and universities, nine outstanding finalists advanced to a leadership boot camp held May 14-17 in Jacksonville, Florida. The finalists underwent a series of challenges, testing their ability to collaborate, innovate and think like an entrepreneur.
“This program aims to develop future leaders, and we are thrilled to partner with companies who understand the modern world of work and are invested in building up the nation’s talent pool,” said Joyce Russell, president of the Adecco Group U.S. Foundation. “This is a shining example of how businesses are working together to create new pathways for career-readiness.”
Through a pre-integrated, modular stack of technologies and technology-driven operational services, Radial helps the world’s top brands and retailers drive a seamless and cost-effective customer experience from start to finish. Radial arms retailers with the tools they need to meet evolving customer expectations through every stage of the journey, from order management to payments and fulfillment to customer care. As such, Radial relies on relationships with key industry partners, like the Adecco Group to attract the large pool of talent needed to serve its clients, from the customer service specialists who give voice to the brands served, to the fulfillment experts who help make sure every package gets where it's going.
“We are proud of the relationship between Radial and Adecco to recruit and attract outstanding talent, who strive to deliver an exceptional experience for our clients and customers in any role, “said Layun. “We are pleased to support Adecco’s efforts with this project that looks at innovative ways to identify top talent as an investment in the future.”
Outside of the U.S., the Adecco Group’s ‘CEO for One Month’ program is simultaneously taking place in 47 countries across the globe. Later this summer, the U.S. ‘CEO’ will have the chance to become one of 10 country finalists, vying for the opportunity to become the Adecco Group’s next ‘Global CEO for One Month.’
