Randstad US Recognized for its Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
Randstad US announced today that it has been named to DiversityInc’s 2020 Top 50 Companies List for the second year in a row — honoring its ongoing track record of implementing diverse and inclusive practices in the workplace. The company continues to improve diversity standards across talent recruitment and development, leadership accountability and suppliers.
“At Randstad, we are working hard to elevate diversity and inclusion in our daily interactions with our employees, talent, clients, vendors, partners and the communities we serve. It’s part of our human forward brand promise to impact the lives of 500 million people by 2030,” said Karen Fichuk, CEO, Randstad North America and Randstad N.V. executive board member.
As the world’s largest staffing company, Randstad US recognizes its responsibility for supporting diversity in the workforce and has long been committed to leveraging the strengths of people from different backgrounds and perspectives to build a more inclusive workforce, marketplace and business. Randstad has furthered that commitment by hosting an annual “Day of Understanding” to promote diversity and inclusion, advocating for military veterans in staffing (and receiving three bronze awards from Military Friendly®) and pledging to support equal pay. In addition, more than 60 percent of leadership roles at the company are held by women, and women make up 33 percent of its executive board.
“As a global staffing leader, we recognize the power of our diverse resources, suppliers and customers around the world,” said Rebecca Henderson, CEO, Randstad Global Businesses and Randstad N.V. executive board member. “Under the pillar of sustainability within Randstad, diversity and inclusion is embedded in the very DNA of our company, and vibrantly lives through our core values and mission.”
“I am proud of our ever-evolving diversity and inclusion journey at Randstad. We have ignited a positive movement in the human capital industry by being the first major staffing firm to earn a spot on the DiversityInc Top 50. We accomplished this because of the amazing people shaping our culture each and every day,” said Audra Jenkins, chief diversity and inclusion officer, Randstad North America.
The DiversityInc Top 50 List recognizes the nation’s top companies for diversity and inclusion management, excelling in areas such as hiring, retaining and promoting women, minorities, people with disabilities, LGBTQ and veterans.
