A changing industry

By Margaret FernsMarc Lazzarini

The interim market in Luxembourg is constantly growing and evolving. Fabrice Poncé has been a witness of this since 2001. In conversation with Lëtzebuerger Journal, Poncé discusses the future of interim recruitment in Luxembourg.

At the end of May 2021 Fabrice Poncé left the Adecco Group after a career spanning 28 years, 20 of which were in Luxembourg. In January 2022, he became managing director of Action Interim, where he joined former Adecco colleague of 15 years David Violetti and together, they took over management.

At 56 years old Poncé left an international company where he was Country Director of the Luxembourg group (including Adecco, Spring Professional and Badenoch & Clark), active in all sectors of economic activity in Luxembourg, to take over a small interim company operating out of Esch-sur-Alzette, focusing on the industrial, construction and white-collar sectors.

Lëtzebuerger Journal: Why did you leave Adecco Luxembourg?

Fabrice Poncé: After 20 years I found myself out of line with the new organisational model. The Group was changing and moving in a direction that I could no longer support. We decided that it was time for me to leave and came to an agreement for me to do so on 31 May 2021.

How did this make you feel?

Having invested so much in Adecco, I felt sad to leave. It was a difficult decision as I had established a great team of people and we had achieved good results together. But at the same time, I was 56 years old and decided to see it as an opportunity to do something else. The time to take care of myself. So, in some ways I was ready to move on, but it was still difficult. A strange situation, both difficult and exciting.
