With the backing of the Adecco Group, the Ajilon organisation in Australia has been re-branded as Modis – to support the group’s ambition to become the number one global technology professional staffing and solutions company. Modis is 100 per cent owned by The Adecco Group.
Combining global strength and scale with local expertise since 2006, Ajilon Australia has built and developed a strong reputation for delivering agile and intelligent end-to-end solutions for its customers, including professional staffing and consulting, project services, managed services, customised solutions and full IT outsourcing projects. Under the new Modis brand identity, the company will offer these same services in Australia from the network of offices established by Ajilon in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth & Sydney.
Under the new Modis brand, the company will continue to create true business value by assembling high-quality specialist teams in the areas of information technology – working for, or in, partnership with its clients. In addition, Modis will offer candidates an unrivalled, diverse portfolio of projects and career development opportunities with the flexibility and security they need to thrive.
Modis Consulting will confirm its position of delivering high quality application development and integration services – building on its track record across Australia that as Ajilon won numerous awards, including ‘INCITE awards’ in Western Australia, ‘iAwards’, ‘Premier’s Awards in NSW’ and the ‘Innovation Excellence Award’ in Queensland.
Modis Staffing was recognised in 2017 by independent assessment for having achieved an industry leading Net Promoter Score [NPS]. Since 2016, the staffing business has produced year on year growth above the industry average – growing faster than the market quarter on quarter.
The Modis Australia team will continue to be led by the existing Ajilon Australia leadership team – with Rod Crozier overseeing the Modis Staffing business and Omar Alim heading Modis Consulting. Crozier and Alim, with their teams, report directly to Melbourne-based Rafael Moyano – CEO, Modis Australia and the wider Adecco Group in Australia. Today, nationally, 1100 colleagues will move seamlessly from Ajilon to the new Modis brand.
Globally, Modis will serve almost 20 territories across four continents, combining the existing Modis businesses in IT, engineering and life sciences solutions in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia – with the 11 other IT, engineering and life sciences brands from within the Adecco Group.
This year Modis has also unveiled an entirely new visual identity that reflects its evolution as a global leader in the science and technology professional staffing and solutions sector. In Australia, Ajilon will adopt this new global identity from today onwards. Modis will empower its associates, consultants, clients and candidates to connect smarter in a rapidly changing world of work, combining the strength of the existing Modis business with the Adecco Group’s proven track record in 60 international markets, including Australia. The Adecco Group is strengthening its position in attractive growth sectors to improve performance, services and value for its customers, and to attract new candidates and clients.
“These are exciting times for the Modis brand globally as we see selected Adecco Group brands transition to use the new Modis brand – while at the same time continuing to deliver the expertise and capabilities that these existing businesses worldwide have become known and valued for – in this case the Ajilon brand in Australia,” said Rafael Moyano, CEO, Australia, The Adecco Group. “We will continue to bring vast experience, flexibility and agility to our global customers to support them as they themselves transition for further growth.”
With more than 20 years’ global experience, Modis has already built a reputation as the leading expert in IT and engineering solutions across Europe and North America. The expanded Modis consists of more than 30,000 associates and consultants worldwide, with a network of 20 centres of excellence and delivery centres, offering customers the opportunity to benefit from sector best practices.
In Australia, Modis joins other Adecco Group brands operating nationally – including Adecco, Spring Professional, Lee Hecht Harrison & Pontoon Solutions. The transition of the Ajilon brand name to Modis comes at an exciting time with the announcement earlier this month of Modis as an official partner of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship. The partnership will connect the world’s brightest talent in engineering and technology with competitive street racing.
