Randstad, a leading global staffing and recruitment company, offering a wide range of solutions in the HR services space, was founded in the Netherlands in 1960. Since then it has expanded their operations to 39 countries, representing more than 90 percent of the Global HR services market. Their mission ‘shaping the world of work’ aims to create a positive contribution to society. Their ability to influence organisations and their industries to set high standards and follow the best practices and benchmarks, is the mission that drives them everyday.
‘Our sustainability framework forms the heart of our value proposition and reflects all our activities.’
‘Shaping the world of work’ can only be achieved if attention is paid to sustainability basics. These range from safeguarding ethical behavior, applying decent environmental care, taking supply chain responsibility with regard to being a good corporate citizen, and ensuring their organisation is transparent.
Randstad is involved in various sustainability initiatives which are in line with the sustainability framework they developed. An excellent example is their partnership with Voluntary Service Overseas, which means they provide support to communities that need it most, and in doing so, help make the world a fairer place for all.
Nudge is proud that Randstad is looking forward to tap into the knowledge and inspiration shared during the Nudge Global Impact Challenge 2017. A great source to help their young professional to contribute to the pursuit of these goals .
