message from our CEO.


It’s been a long road for many, and now that the next phase is finally coming into view I can feel a collective sigh of relief begin to grow. The friends I talk to in different industries are all asking and being asked the same questions. When can we return to work? Will things go back to the way they were? What will the ‘new normal’ look like?

I’m not surprised to read articles and overhear discussions about how the coronavirus will affect everything from balcony gardening to music streaming. Much of it is just speculation. However, I do agree with the sentiment that we can’t return to the way things were before. Is that a bad thing? I don’t think so. If we’re willing to look critically at what wasn’t working, we have the opportunity to make things better. Instead of just waiting to see what's in store for us, we should use this moment as an opportunity to act on what we've learned. 

I believe we have the presence of mind to understand these lessons and the courage to act on them. Please join me next week for an online event where I’ll be discussing how we at Randstad are committed to getting people safely back to work in the new normal. You can find out more here.
