DAR Chile Join Forces With Adecco

DAR Chile, the group representing Chile’s elite athletes, has signed an agreement with human resource giant Adecco, allowing both current and former athletes to further explore the working world.

The new deal will offer both part time and full time opportunities, as well as training courses for Chile’s best athletes. While many of Chile’s athletes sacrifice working opportunities to fully commit to their sports, the work of DAR Chile is ensuring that each athlete has the opportunity to set themselves up for the future.

Recent years have seen extra funding and publicity through programs such as ADO+ and Team Chile, but once a worldwide problem for athletes is what to do once they retire.

The deal with Adecco will offer first of all the opportunity for the athletes to complete a garzon course. The athletes will not only be paid for their time in completing the course, but also have a flexible option to be part of the wait staff for various businesses on busy event days.

The deal also looks towards retired athletes, or those who are reaching the twilight of their career, with the agency offering two places completely focused on athletes, both able-bodied and athletes with a disability.

DAR Chile President Claudia Vera said in a statement, “For our group it is a great advance to have reached this alliance with Adecco, we hope this is the starting point to continue reaching agreements which can benefit our athletes in the future.”
