Pontoon gives back with Build for Good

Pontoon gives back with Build for Good

Earlier this year, 100 leaders from Pontoon and Adecco Group gathered for an interactive three-day session to discuss our long-term ambitions and key priorities for the year ahead. The setting was Mexico City, an expansive metropolis rich in culture, cuisine, and people.

We collaborated to solve challenges, shared insights, and co-designed our roadmap for the next 12 months. While visiting Mexico City, our leaders had a mission to give back to the local community and make an impact on members of the next generation.

With International Women’s Day in mind, we partnered with three local charities focused on supporting the growth and advancement of disadvantaged girls and teens. Our team spent time packing backpacks with clothing essentials, educational workbooks, toys, and games. To each backpack, we added handwritten notes with words of encouragement and affirmations for the girls to read and remember. Under the theme of our event, Build Together, we proudly refer to this effort as Build for Good.

As part of the Adecco Group, Pontoon is on a mission to make the future work for everyone. From working with local charities in the places we visit to building a better future for generations to come, we all have a responsibility to make a difference. Every year we help more than 3.5 million people find employment opportunities and support more than 100,000 organisations across 60 countries with their recruitment and workforce solutions.
