mission & core values

 

Our mission: shaping the world of work

HR services represent one of the world’s fastest-growing industries, with the global market worth around € 310 billion. Yet in many major economies, staffing and other HR services are still in their infancy. As the world’s number two HR services company, we are a true global leader in our industry and see it as our responsibility to take an active role in developing the industry. In 2013, every day we provided work for over 567,700 people around the world. By finding employees the work they are best suited for, and by finding employers those candidates who best fit within their organization, we provide value to society as a whole. Changing labor market trends, including an aging population, flexibilization, and resolving labor market shortages, means developing new solutions. By finding the right balance between the needs of the employer and the changing wishes of employees, we will bring supply and demand closer together. In short, our mission is to take the lead in shaping the world of work.
