As part of our commitment to making work meaningful and growing sustainable communities where we live and work, Randstad with Heart is a global program that gives all our employees 8 hours of paid volunteering time each year to support a charity of their choice. How will you use your 8 hours to make a difference?
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.
Jacques van den Broek, Randstad CEO
Designed by Randstad, Hire Hope provides critical career training and skills development to women who are the most vulnerable, including survivors of homlessness, exploitation and trafficking. A 22-week program, Hire Hope provides career-readiness training, paid apprenticeship and job placement opportunities to help participants develop the skills they need to earn a living wage and live independently.
Executed with community partners, our employees, teams and clients can get involved to empower women with opportunities to do meaningful and financially sustainable work.
This year, we celebrate 15 years of partnership with Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO)! Together, VSO, Randstad and employees have done so much to help fight poverty around the globe, and we continue to work toward building a more inclusive and sustainable society.
All our employees are able to volunteer with VSO in a variety of capacities – creating inspiring life and work experiences and truly using our professional skills to advance employment other communities.
Despite the fact that women's literacy and education enrollment rates are on the rise, India currently has one of the lowest workforce gender parity scores globally. Trailing many countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East, for every 82 men in the workforce in India, there are just 28 women who work. Committed to the advancement of women at work, we launched Programs on Women Empowerment (POWER) in March 2017. Through POWER, we mentor and educate women to help them visualize careers, overcome cultural barriers and inspire the next generation of women.
