our history can determine the future.

All good stories have a beginning. Randstad's started more than 55 years ago in the Netherlands before developing across five continents and 39 countries. With a mission of 'Shaping the world of work' and core values that's stood the test of time, we're just getting started.

our company.

Randstad is a leading global recruitment and HR services company, offering a wide range of solutions in the HR services space.  We take the lead in shaping the world of work, by matching candidates with companies that will help them reach their full potential, and matching clients with people who will work to successfully develop their business. We offer full permanent, temporary and contact recruitment services, recruitment process outsourcing, managed services and HR consulting services.

our history.

Back in 1960, the world of Randstad was no more than one old bicycle, two student rooms and 500 Dutch guilders. However, Frits Goldschmeding, our founder, and Ger Daleboudt had big plans. They believed the labour market could be different and better, more flexible, and temporary labour was the means to achieve that.

Their dream became a reality. Within ten years, Randstad established branches in four countries, and is now one of the most recognised recruitment agencies in the world.

our values.

We continue to adhere to and live by our core values, established in the company's early days: to know, to serve, to trust, striving for perfection, and simultaneous promotion of all interests. The values we share serve as a compass for everyone at Randstad, guiding our behavior and representing the foundation of our culture.
