Sophia Lim, a World Bachelor in Business, became global ‘CEO for One Month’ 2019. Over her journey, she was capable of handling client visits, OPS meetings, events, conferences, and marketing meetings, and she visited 7 countries and 3 continents.
What this programme means to her?
“First, I definitely learned a lot about the Adecco Group. I learned about just how versatile and impactful the Group is with all its numerous brands and through all the local initiatives.
Second, I got to see leadership and decision making in action, which is a very valuable experience for me because often times as fresh graduates, we get lost in the daily routine and miss out the strategy behind the work that we have to do.
Third, I got to experience different business cultures that also have different policies, meaning that there are different strategies that each of the countries need to take.
To summarize, learning about the Adecco Group, witnessing leadership and strategy from above, and being exposed to different business cultures are my three key learning from my journey as the global ‘CEO for One Month’.”
