value for employees.

Randstad attracts agile and flexible people, capable of effectively dealing with and responding to ever and rapidly changing circumstances. This is key to making our strong concepts work in practice. A strong and contemporary human resources function throughout the company is key to this ambition, and drives quality and discipline with regard to processes like performance management, talent & leadership development, organization design & development, employer & employee branding, and employee engagement. In order to safeguard the recruitment, development and retention of best people, we have designed world league HR Standards. They guide the Randstad HR community in promoting the company's core values and business principles, in contributing to the company's overall corporate goals, and in taking advantage of best practices elsewhere. Topics covered include talent management, learning & development, and reward. The HR Standards also contain a self-assessment tool that provides insight into compliance and areas of improvement.

Trained, engaged and skilled employees perform significantly better and are more likely to stay. Helping both new and existing employees to understand the strategy and culture of the organization as well as their individual job requirements is crucial in driving their individual effectiveness and satisfaction. This is why all new employees, as well as employees starting in a new role, follow a formal induction program. The program covers our ambitions, strategy, values, culture, history, and corporate policies, as well as targeted and relevant job-related information designed to help employees become effective in their new role as quickly as possible. All employees also have an individual development plan (IDP) which plays a key role during their career at Randstad. One of the key drivers of high performance in an organization is a disciplined and relevant performance management process. Each Randstad employee follows our performance management process, in accordance with the performance management cycle.
