WHEN YOU SPEND your working day helping to find the right person for the job, its good to know that you are happy with yours. Motivated staff at Adecco UK believe they can make a valuable contribution to the success of the firm (a positive score of 87%, ranking third nationally) and get a buzz out of working in their team (80%). The recruitment provider for London 2012, Adecco provides bespoke training to meet specific job-role requirements and its “top talent” programme helps develop consultants keen to rise to the next level. In the past year, Adecco has promoted almost 12% of its people to the role of senior or principal consultant. Founded as Alfred Marks in 1919 before rebranding as Adecco in 1996, the London-based company's services range from finding temporary and permanent staff for clients to outplacement, career advice, training and consulting and its 469 workers are based at 110 locations across Britain. Staff, who also have access to more than 7,000 learning modules to help them grow professionally, are clear about what is expected of them and find the experience they gain in their job valuable for their future (both 83%). In addition to the annual conference, regional social events ensure teams are able to celebrate their successes and share team spirit. And there's plenty of that. Colleagues care about each other (85%) and, added to this, relationships with managers are strong. Bosses talk honestly and openly to staff and share important knowledge and information with them (both 84%). Adecco runs a number of incentive schemes, with prizes ranging from £1,000 vouchers for days out and quarterly treats such as cookery lessons in Paris to a five-star, all-expenses-paid trip for the very top performers. Last year the destination was Rio de Janeiro and next month winners will be whisked away to Marrakesh for five days. Despite this, the company scores least well on questions in our Fair Deal category and for people feeling fairly paid compared to those in similar positions in rival firms (47% positive). Three-quarters of staff earn £25,000 or less, including consultants whose average salary is £20,518. That said, employees believe they have a positive future ahead of them with the organisation and wouldn't leave tomorrow even if they were offered another job (both 79%).

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
