1. our world - a major growth opportunity.

Randstad is the global HR services leader with 6% share in a very fragmented market. Staffing penetration rates rise over time driven by structural growth drivers such as globalization and urbanization, technological progress and automation, demographics, the changing nature of work, and mobility.

2. future-proofing Randstad.

At Randstad we combine the power of digital technology with our distinctive human approach, supporting people and organizations in realizing their true potential.

Our Tech & Touch strategy centers around three pillars that reinforce each other: digital, operational excellence and accelerating growth.

3. gearing for accelerated growth.

Randstad has leading positions in markets & segments combined with a highly resilient FCF and diversified portfolio.

This allows us to continuously grow profitable market share gains, while simultaneously aiming for an EBITA margin of 5-6% over time.

4. strong focus on shareholder returns.

We apply the following longer-term strategic priorities, which will support us in realizing our objectives and maximizing shareholder returns through our transparent capital allocation policy:

  1. dividend payout ratio between 40-50%
  2. conditional cash floor dividend of € 1.62
  3. optional additional cash returns when leverage ratio is <1
