we face the future with confidence
Randstad was founded in 1960 by Frits Goldschmeding in the Netherlands. Since then, we have expanded operations to 39 markets, representing more than 90 per cent of the global HR services market.
from past to present
Back in 1960, the world of Randstad was no more than one old bicycle, two student rooms and 500 Dutch guilders. However, Frits Goldschmeding, our founder, and Ger Daleboudt had big plans. They believed the labour market could be different and better, more flexible, and temporary labour was the means to achieve that.
Their dream became a reality. Within ten years, Randstad established branches in four countries, and is now one of the most recognised recruitment agencies in the world.
