Randstad was founded in 1960 by Frits Goldschmeding. Since then they have expanded to 53 countries, representing more than 90 percent of the global HR services market. Following the acquisition of Vedior in July 2008, they are now the second largest HR services provider in the world. Their mission is to be a world leader in matching demand for and supply of labor and HR services. In doing so, they continue to apply their founding ethos: "to know, to serve, to trust." We believe in the value of work as a unifying force that shapes society for the better."
