Contributing something to the world and helping our communities move forward is at the heart of everything we do at Randstad. As part of our commitment to make work meaningful and grow sustainable communities, Randstad with Heart is our global corporate social responsibility (CSR) program that enables our employees to get involved in their communities, charities or virtually.
In 2022, Randstad Sourceright employees collectively volunteered a total of 2,632 hours across 14 countries! This is incredible, considering that in 2021, Randstad Sourceright employees volunteered 1,381 hours throughout the whole year.
how do we do it?
We make participating easy. Because not everyone knows where they can volunteer locally, we provide employees with an approved country-by-country list of diverse charities and organizations that employees can browse through to choose opportunities that resonate with them. We also enable employees to donate to or volunteer with organizations, community centers, or places of worship that aren’t on the list.
We also have a diverse team of Randstad with Heart ambassadors based all over the world who organize in-person volunteering events across various countries.
