As plenty of studies have recently shown, working women have been more adversely impacted by the pandemic than men. Juggling work and family is especially difficult for women as most are the primary caretakers within their households. 

Randstad has for some time focused our efforts to help female job seekers find employment that accommodates their professional goals and personal obligations. I’m proud to share one such success story about Céline, a single parent who aspired to work as an accounting assistant. By securing training for her, and then finding a job that suited her schedule, we helped Céline meet her family and work goals.

Céline's is just one of many stories of people around the world whom we’ve had the privilege of helping on their journey. There are many others who can use similar support. Let’s all make a bigger push to provide the resources professional women and others need. Doing so will benefit both workers and employers.
