The global leader will run the IT outsourcing business under a new brand
Adecco started operations in Bulgaria as Ajilon Consulting at the end of 2005, partnering with HP on establishing the HP Global Delivery Center in Sofia. Since then, the company grew significantly and quickly become a leader in HR services. In Bulgaria, Adecco focuses on providing complete outsourcing solutions in the fields of Information Technology and Business Support, recruitment services, and temporary workforce solutions.
In 2016 IT Outsourcing has been identified as one of The Adecco Group’s strategic priorities and has been established as a global practice within the group. In alignment with this global strategy, the IT Outsourcing business will now be run under the MODIS brand. General Staffing will remain under the Adecco Bulgaria organization and the IT Outsourcing business will become Modis IT Outsourcing. In Bulgaria the change will be effected by way of a spin-off.

With our global footprint and consolidated best practices, we will continue providing best in class solutions to our clients from around the globe.” Philippe Rouvrais, Senior Vice President, IT Outsourcing EMEA & India at The Adecco Group said.

Modis IT Outsourcing will continue connecting thousands of employees to professional development opportunities and making them feel valued.” added Stayko Shivarov, Site Director and Country Lead Bulgaria, IT Outsourcing (EMEA) at The Adecco Group.
