CSR Section in 2005 Annual Report

  • 2006/04/28
Time period
  • January 2005  –  December 2005
  • 2005 marked a year of formalizing already existing networks and processes to carry out CSR minded activities at Randstad. This section of the annual report first outlines our philosophy behind pursuing a CSR agenda, and follows with concrete examples of what Randstad does internally to be a responsible corporate employer. It then outlines steps we take to engage stakeholders in our sector and end with a detailed account of activities we conduct with the aim to better society, most notably our partnership with VSO. While on many fronts, Randstad is a leader in behaving in a socially responsible manner, we appreciate that the efforts outlined in this section are only steps that mark our progress in becoming even better corporate citizens.
