Colliers International and Adecco Group become new ABSL Strategic Partners in 2021

The Association of Business Service Leaders (ABSL), a leading organization representing the business services sector, has established cooperation with new Strategic Partners – Colliers International, a global leader in real estate services and investment management and Adecco Group, a global player on the employment and personnel consulting market.

Facing business challenges together

The business services sector in Poland is the industry most rapidly adapting to the changing reality, being a crucial element stimulating the economy. The dynamic development of ABSL is possible thanks to cooperation with a wide range of experts and partners. ABSL partners will support member companies in their business challenges, providing solutions tailored to the changing market needs, especially during a pandemic, thanks to their extensive experience in cooperation with the sector, active participation in union meetings, cooperation on projects and sharing expert knowledge with members.

By establishing a strategic partnership with Colliers International and Adecco Group ABSL reiterates and strengthens its long-term commitment to the development of talent and creation of business-friendly legislative solutions, ensuring stable conditions for development, as well as Poland's competitiveness and investment attractiveness. The priority will be to promote the sector through joint initiatives, including educational projects, reports and analyses.

“Our goal is to build a competitive and sustainable economy that supports business and investment development. To achieve this goal, we aim to create an enabling environment, but we also need partners representing specific industries who will enrich our message and strengthen our activities. 
We are currently working intensively to define challenges and the plan of our activities to increase the competitiveness of the business services sector and to attract even more investments, now crucial in rebuilding the economy, hit by the COVID-19 crisis” - says Paweł Panczyj, Managing Director Strategy & Partnerships, ABSL.

Building a work environment

Colliers International, the new Strategic Partner of ABSL, is a leading company offering a wide range of top quality services on the real estate market and investment management. Operating in 68 countries, more than 15,000 Colliers specialists work together to maximize property value for tenants, owners and investors. Together with ABSL, Colliers experts will support member companies in the field of real estate, including market research, negotiation of lease agreements, location strategy, workplace advisory and change management, architectural design, project management as well as new technologies dedicated to office space.

“As Colliers, we are really excited about the partnership with ABSL, especially in this unprecedented time of change. We are looking forward to explore together both the challenges and opportunities. I am convinced that our experience, solid data, focus on quality and out of the box thinking will create a strong foundation for an amazing cooperation.
We will use our talent and passion, hand in hand with new technologies and data analytics to further develop the business services sector in Poland alongside ABSL and its members” - says Monika Rajska-Wolińska, Managing Partner of Colliers International in Poland.

Focus on employees

Adecco Group is a world leader among personnel consulting companies. The Adecco company was established in 1996, when the two largest global brands in the industry, Adia and Ecco, merged. They have since become the # 1 company in the HR industry, with over 500 locations in over 60 countries. As a strategic partner of ABSL, it will support the organization in the area of HR, including trends and analyses related to personnel consulting and employment, which will respond to the increasingly diverse needs of companies from the service sector.

“We believe that the business service sector, also thanks to the involvement of ABSL, has become one of the key drivers of the Polish and Central European economy, permanently shaping the labor market. However, the positive macroeconomic impact is the effect of the sector’s strength and the unique competencies that have been created thanks to business services. Our common mission will be the development of business potential and creating a competitive economy that creates new, valuable workplaces. We are particularly close to activities aimed at improving the qualifications of people entering the labor market and the availability of human capital” – says Daniel Wocial, General Director and Custer Head for Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia at The Adecco Group.

The Association of Business Service Leaders represents over 200 of the world's largest companies, currently employing over 330,000 people in Poland. More than 1.5 thousand service centers located in more than 50 cities form a thriving ecosystem supporting innovative solutions implemented by international corporations. The goal is to build attractive and sustainable ecosystems that, thanks to this positive commitment, will create new, valuable jobs and responsibly develop investments and business in local communities.
