The results of the annual Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (‘DJSI’) review have been announced. Launched in 1999, the DJSI recognizes the leading companies in each industry sector for responsible economic, environmental, and social performance. Randstad is proud to be included as the only HR services provider in the Professional Services industry of the DJSI World and DJSI Europe indices. We were assessed as best in class by RobecoSAM on the criterion Labor Practice Indicators.

Since Randstad’s founding in 1960, the simultaneous promotion of all interests has been at the core of our company’s values. Randstad was built upon the firm belief that no company can exist if it does not make a positive contribution to society. Efficient and flexible labor markets are not only essential for the success of businesses, but they benefit society as a whole. That is why we have always been passionate about supporting people and organizations in realizing their true potential. We have committed ourselves to maximize future employment and contribute to economic growth for society at large.

CEO Jacques van den Broek comments: “The inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index as the only HR services company shows that we’re on the right track to contribute to a better society. Our empathy, our intuition, and our passion for people have always been in our DNA. While the HR industry is increasingly impacted by technology, we firmly believe that it is the human side of our business that will continue to make the difference. Our ultimate goal to touching the work lives of 500 million people by 2030 worldwide therefore forces us to develop client and candidate experiences that combine technology and human strength.”
