About Randstad Staffing


What is it like to work for Randstad Staffing

Leadership
Leadership
Randstad consultants are most inspired and engagement when they can work in partnership with the leadership team; both putting their ideas forward and learning from their role models. The high performance camps channelled this, inviting feedback and acting as ambassadors for consultants. Employees’ invitation to a two-day event had already created interest and heightened project awareness and engagement levels. To maximise engagement, the event was attended by Randstad UK’s CEO and Randstad business support’s managing director. In their employees’ eyes, this really added value to the event. Firstly, it actively demonstrated how important the event was. Secondly, it gave employees direct access to senior team members in an informal, fun and inspirational environment. Mark Bull and Ruth Jacobs were actively involved in physical and mental challenges. Their people enjoyed ‘getting their hands dirty’ in the team-building events alongside some of Randstad’s most senior leaders.

Strategic objectives are developed, with clear priorities and targets set. Randstad is transparent, highlighting what needs to be achieved, how it can be realised and communicating and managing expectations. When goals are set, the resource available is a significant consideration. Whilst employees demand a varied and interesting role the organisation measures what is feasible in light of the impact on its managers. Randstad’s high performance culture supports managers in allocating their time to only a handful of projects/priorities, allowing them to truly excel in those tasks. Each manager has clarity around what they need to achieve. All projects and workflow must tie-in to the business objectives and priorities so employees do not spend time on redundant projects or add unnecessary workload. Managers have permission to de-clutter their day; ensuring they focus on priorities. Randstad has a number of tools and processes in place to help managers recognise what they need to achieve. Accurate and up-to-date job descriptions are key to success, as are regular scheduled one-to-ones with the senior management team. New managers have reviews at 3 months and 6 months in line with performance objectives. Randstad’s bonus schemes, sales incentives, employee competitions and Randstad Stars give the organisation an opportunity to recognise and reward achievement. There are also a number of platforms available to acknowledge quick and tactical successes including e-cards. Randstad ensures managers have the tools to recognise and reward success, no matter how big or small.

Randstad hosts numerous team building days; these range from more formal training days to inspirational ‘directors day’, which are always eagerly anticipated. In 2013, one of Randstad’s most successful team building events was delivered within their Randstad Care business line. As opposed to being a tactical team building event – the bespoke and strategic event was created in direct response to external market research report and internal employee feedback. Firstly, the Randstad Care team surveyed both existing current clients and prospective clients. This gave the team valuable feedback on both business perceptions and experiences and helping identify where they were already successful and where improvements could be made. Once the findings were in place, all employees were invited to two-day events to combine the learning obtained from the research and to further build team morale and communication. The engaging agenda ranged from practical workshops to outward bound courses, culminating in a sensational and aspirational Randstad Talent evening. The event offered a superb blend of business benefits and social activation. This activity received exceptional feedback as it gave teams valuable insight into their market and gave them an opportunity to shape what the future of their business would look like. Employees recognised that in addition to the fun team-building element, this unique event also really helped them to further succeed in their jobs and supported their career development.
