Randstad named Best Large Recruitment Business at Global Recruiter Awards 2017

Randstad is proud and delighted to be named Best Large Recruitment Business at the prestigious Global Recruiter Asia Pacific Industry Awards 2017 last week.

The Awards, held at the PARKROYAL on Pickering in Singapore, brought together the best industry players in the Asia Pacific recruitment world, from large, established recruiters to new starts.

Randstad impressed the judges with its forward-looking strategy and innovative culture, in particular for its launch of tech initiatives such as online live chat, an automated Net Promoter Score® survey to measure client satisfaction and Perfect Match, where data on passive candidates are collected and automatically matched to their idea of a perfect job as soon as it is registered. The Best Large Recruitment Business Award also came after a year of solid results demonstrating impressive growth and improvement across its businesses in Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia. Randstad was also recognised for going over and beyond to delight its clients and candidates as well as playing a significant role in the industries it serves.

Managing Director for Randstad Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia, Michael Smith noted, "We are delighted to be named again Best Large Recruitment Business in APAC at the Global Recruiter awards. I believe this is the result of our people and leaders continuing to strive to find the optimum balance between leveraging technology to drive efficiencies, and utilising touch to build more personal connections with our candidates and clients. This client and candidate-centric approach to recruitment is also evident in our new brand promise "Human Forward" - which highlights our ambition of continuing to place candidates in meaningful work that both professionally and personally fulfills them. I'd like to thank all of our clients and candidates, and in particular our people, for their continued support."

The Global Recruiter award comes after an additional recent success at the 2017 Asia Recruitment Awards where the Randstad Singapore office won the Gold award for Best Client Service. The accolade recognised Randstad’s commitment to provide higher value services to its clients in the form of stronger industry knowledge, individualised client service and inter-division collaboration to streamline communications and sharing of best practices.
