a lesson in randstad's history how it all started

in the beginning

In 1960, Randstad was no more than an old bicycle, two student rooms, and 500 Dutch guilders. But Frits Goldschmeding and Ger Daleboudt had big plans. They believed that the job market could be better. Their dream became a reality. Within 10 years, Randstad had established branches in four countries.

our canadian roots

Randstad staffing entered the Canadian market in 1997. Randstad Canada eventually developed Professional, Recruitment Process Outsourcing and Randstad Managed Services divisions and built success from a vision to serve clients by providing them with the highest calibre talent in every represented market.
