Randstad Canada calls upon employees to consider ways to support Canadian communities during the difficult Holiday period, made even more challenging by the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, the annual Give it Forward campaign goes virtual!

Now, more than ever, helping each other is crucial. Randstad’s annual Give It Forward campaign allows employees across the country to come together in support of causes that truly matter to them and to the people in their communities. This month, they take this incredible initiative online. The Randstad family will amp up the spirit of giving and safely volunteer from November 23 to December 18.

Employees, leaders, and friends of Randstad will share their volunteer stories on social media using the hashtag #RandstadGiveItForward. They will challenge others to donate their time, share their stories, and tag friends and family to continue the cycle of giving. The impact, however big or small, makes a difference. 

“At Randstad, we focus on giving back throughout the year, through many different initiatives, our Give It Forward challenge being one of the most impactful,” says Lara Speirs, EVP & General Counsel, Legal & Public Affairs. “Give It Forward unites Randstad employees in a collective effort to raise funds and awareness to positively impact our communities, with a focus on early education, skill-building, and workforce inclusion. In light of the challenges our community members faced in 2020, we feel more compelled than ever before to give back. By sharing our initiatives and efforts on social media, we hope to inspire more Canadians to explore virtual volunteering opportunities.” 

Randstad’s decision to take the Give It Forward campaign online was inspired by individual employees and teams who have continued to volunteer virtually: they connected with youth job seekers to discuss the future of work, created accessible multilingual onboarding content for future employees, signed up for remote mentorship programs, and so much more. Despite the challenges of 2020, Randstad’s goal remains the same: positively impacting the lives of community-members and supporting charity partners.
