Program launched in 38 countries

        Available for its more than 38,000 employees

        A total of over 300,000 volunteer hours on an annual basis

Mumbai, October 30, 2018 —  Today, Randstad announced the launch of Randstad With Heart, a global program that enables its more than 38,000 employees worldwide to do eight hours of voluntary activities annually during working hours for a charity of their choice.

Randstad With Heart is supported by the insights of Randstad’s quarterly Workmonitor report, which showed that 65% of workers feel it is important to make a contribution to society by doing voluntary work. While 34% actively do so, 73% say they are willing to do voluntary work, if employers would give paid time off.

Speaking about the initiative, Randstad Global CEO Jacques van den Broek said, “Randstad With Heart brings to life our Human Forward promise. People are at the heart of our business and we feel inspired to use our knowledge and experience to make a positive contribution to society. Randstad With Heart, together with other social and volunteer programs, enables Randstad employees to support communities around the world.”

Randstad With Heart is supported by a global online platform enabling employees to sign up for voluntary work, to make a donation and to post an activity and invite colleagues to join.

Sharing his thoughts, Paul Dupuis, MD and CEO, Randstad India said, “Randstad is a company that really cares about the world - it's not just about business for us, it's also about helping people move forward in their lives. That's why we are proud to announce this unique initiative, Randstad With Heart - that will give us a chance not only to do well, but also to do good.”  

Randstad has a long tradition in supporting voluntary work by employees. In 2019, Randstad and VSO - the world’s leading development NGO that fights poverty through the knowledge and skills of volunteers,  will celebrate their 15 year partnership. Randstad employees participate in two VSO projects in Tanzania and India. The global CEO Jacques van den Broek has been personally involved for years, coaching Randstad employees who are participating in the voluntary project in India.

In addition to VSO, Randstad employees participate in many other volunteer projects, including socially involved and philanthropic initiatives. More on these initiatives can be found on our website.
