Rick Scott Applauds Adecco For Moving Headquarters To Jacksonville, Bringing Jobs

Florida Governor Rick Scott was in Jacksonville today to thank staffing company Adecco for bringing nearly 200 jobs to the Sunshine State.

Adecco Group moved its North American corporate headquarters from New York to Jacksonville last year.

Switzerland-based Adecco connects employees and employers around the world.

Adecco North America CEO Bob Crouch says his company brought 185 jobs to Jacksonville when it relocated here.

Crouch says most of the jobs were in high-end accounting, human resources, marketing and information technology.

Scott says job creation is a focus for him. He says Florida has added more than 807,000 jobs since he took office just over four years ago.
