new urgency around

reskilling and upskilling.

the changing landscape

The need to continually acquire new skills and proactively stay ahead of tech-driven change has probably never been felt so acutely, or by so many, across the workforce. The fact is, the global pandemic not only changed the fabric of the workplace, it rapidly accelerated digital transformation at organizations across the board, too. And that’s casting a spotlight on new digital proficiencies as never before — and creating challenges for employees and employers.

At Randstad, we're committed to touching the working lives of 500 million people by 2030 through the launch of new training and development opportunities, with the immediate goal of skilling 40,000 workers through 2021. After all, as the world's largest HR firm, we’re uniquely positioned to provide advanced workforce solutions that can power the success of employees and employers alike. Below are a few of the ways we’re doing it.

strategic skilling partnerships

Randstad continues to advance upskilling and reskilling opportunities to enhance the working lives of talent we support and ensure the needs of our clients are being met. The following are examples of partnerships that assist us in our efforts:
