our initiatives

Many socially involved, philanthropic and volunteering initiatives are organized by the wider Randstad community across the globe. This section provides examples of various sustainability initiatives which are structured in line with the sustainability framework we developed.

VSO (Voluntary Service Overseas)

Partnering with VSO means we provide support to communities that need it most, and in doing so, help make the world a fairer place for all. We support VSO in recruiting volunteers from the general public, facilitate our staff to go on volunteer placements themselves and support VSO financially and through ad-hoc opportunities.

The program is focused on youth unemployment and allows Randstad to contribute to solving this issue in the Netherlands. From 3 September to 8 October, Randstad Netherlands and Mirjam Sterk, appointed by the Dutch government to lead the fight against youth unemployment, teamed up again to find jobs for as many unemployed youths as possible. To do so, they asked for the support of all Dutch employers.
