corporate social responsibility

community outreach

Randstad Technologies is committed to improving the quality of life and enhancing the vitality of the communities in which we operate. Through our Community Outreach Programs, we provide support to causes reflecting employee and community interests by the means of employee volunteer efforts, corporate initiatives, and monetary donations.

Randstad Technologies' charity support focuses on two major areas: Child Health and Welfare, and Cancer Prevention and Research. In championing these causes, we have aligned our efforts with well respected organizations that are compatible with our corporate objectives.


Methods

Randstad Technologies demonstrates its leadership as a concerned community partner by encouraging and facilitating participation in the following ways:


Corporate Giving Program

Randstad Technologies' Corporate Giving Program is committed to increasing opportunities and improving the quality of life in our communities, both locally and globally. Through our Corporate Giving Program, donations and outreach activities are given to non-profit, non-religious, and non-political organizations with an emphasis on Child Health and Welfare and Cancer Prevention and Research. These programs are supported on a corporate level and represent the company as a whole.


Randstad Technologies' Employee Giving Program

Through our Employee Giving Program internal employees have the ability to make monetary donations to the Randstad Technologies endorsed charity of their choosing through scheduled payroll deductions. In addition, at the end of the year our corporate office will provide a matching tie-in to the final donation amount presented to each organization.


Office Matching Program

Randstad Technologies' Office Matching Program provides budgeted funds for each of our regional offices to be used to support approved charity ventures in their local communities.


Volunteer Days

Randstad Technologies employees receive one full work day (or equivalent hours) per calendar year to volunteer at the non-profit organization of their choice. Employees are highly encouraged to utilize this time to participate in a charity event that is meaningful and convenient for them.

International Rett Syndrome Foundation (IRSF)

Rett syndrome is a childhood neurodevelopmental disorder that affects females almost exclusively. Loss of muscle tone is usually the first symptom, but other early symptoms may include problems crawling or walking and diminished eye contact. As the syndrome progresses, a child will lose purposeful use of her hands and the ability to speak. Though there is no current cure for Rett Syndrome, constant research allows for the development of new therapies and treatments. Your contributions aid in the management of such research.
