Identified as having one of the strongest reputations in the staffing industry

Fortune Magazine just released their 2012 “World’s Most Admired” list. As one of only three staffing companies listed in the temporary help sector industry, Randstad is recognized for achieving top scores on nine key attributes: innovation, people management, use of corporate assets, social responsibility, quality of management, financial soundness, long-term investment, quality of products and services, and global competitiveness. Randstad ranked third in the Temporary Help category, which is featured in the March 19, 2012 edition of the magazine.
