It’s 1994, Poland has just started its efforts to be admitted into the European Union, Edyta Górniak celebrates success in the Eurovision contest, and Ari Hecht, a young emigrant from the US, sets up his TempService business in Warsaw – the first Polish temporary employment and personal consulting company. It wasn’t easy at first – such services weren’t familiar to Polish entrepreneurs, and foreign investors weren’t that keen to invest in a country with only a 5-year history of building its own market economy. However, today, after over 20 years of operations, Randstad is the leading HR company in Poland.
Randstad is a global leading HR company – expert in personal consulting and temporary work. We support people and organizations in achieving their real potential. We achieve this by combining modern technologies with our passion for people. We call our approach: human forward. We recruit temporary employees but also specialists for permanent positions. Our HR solutions include recruitment process outsourcing and outplacement.
Randstad operates in 39 countries globally, and in more than half is among the three-sector leaders. In 2017, a total of 38,331 employees were working in 4,858 branches, and the company’s income amounted to EUR 23.3 billion, making us the leading HR company in November 2018. Randstad was set up in 1960. Its headquarters are located in Diemen in the Netherlands. Randstad N.V. is traded on the NYSE Euronext Amsterdam.
