the story of javier.
What if, on top of living in Sevilla, a city with a high unemployment rate, you are also at risk of exclusion due to a disability? Such was the case for Javier Aranda Arques, a 33-year-old Sevillian. “It was hard to find a job – sometimes I lacked the right training,” says Javier. A few years back, however, his luck turned when he participated in a program created by Fundacion Randstad and Fundación Juan Ramón Guillen.

the story of mauro.
Last year, tech unemployment hit an all-time low, with the IT-sector front and center. Fresh, out-of-school talent are also finding themselves insufficiently prepared for the work emerging jobs require. Such was the challenge for 22-year-old Milan resident Mauro Flamigni, who recently found a job through a program at Randstad Italy called the ITS Technologies Talent Factory. After completing this two-year program, Mauro started working at one of Italy’s most innovative IT companies.

By combining our human touch with technological expertise and data-driven insights, we will empower our clients and talent to grow, develop and improve, so they can add value to the economy, both now and in the future.
our key drivers.
To lead the way towards the goal, we have identified four drivers:
- contributing to economic growth
- connecting with people
- fostering inclusive employment
- shaping the world of work
These drivers will also have an impact on the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. As a global HR services provider, Randstad specifically contributes to four goals: decent work and economic growth (SDG 8), reduced inequalities (SDG 10), gender equality (SDG 5), and quality education (SDG 4).
connecting with people.
We will connect with people beyond search, selection, staffing and recruitment. Through our smart solutions and online platforms, we aim to be present at all stages in people's careers, consistently improving their employability and providing training opportunities where this is appropriate. In today's fast changing world, new technologies, tools, and solutions are redefining the way we interact with people. We combine this with the most important we have to offer: our human touch.
fostering inclusive employment.
We will support the inclusion of people who experience a distance to the labor market, for instance because of gender, age, ethnicity or disability. We strongly promote equal opportunities and respect and safeguard human and labor rights in order to maximize future employment for as many people as possible.
shaping the world of work.
As a global player in the labor market, Randstad has indepth knowledge of the world of work. Through our daily interaction with clients and talent, and our continuous dialogue with governments and labor organizations, we take the lead in shaping the world of work. This is, in fact, also our mission. By promoting equal opportunities and contributing to better functioning labor markets in this way, we create for ourselves the opportunity to touch the work lives of more people.
