“It is an honor to be recognized by Everest Group once again as a Leader in MSP,” said Mike Smith, global CEO of Randstad Sourceright. “In a market characterized by higher demand for skilled workers, growing talent shortages and uncertainty about the future, it’s more important than ever to leverage the full spectrum of contingent talent — freelance, temporary, independent contractor, gig and SOW. Our goal is to empower companies with analytics-based, easy-to-use and scalable solutions that connect them with the people who will help them achieve their priorities, all while providing the agility to quickly react and adjust to changing business needs.”

We are honored that Everest Group has recognized how we’re transforming the SOW process for businesses.”
