The world of work has dramatically transformed and has disrupted work ever since Covid-19 pandemic hit but it has encouraged more flexibility, collaboration and remote work arrangements which attracts strong talent to employers. Randstad supports people and organizations in realizing their true potential by combining the power of today’s HR technology with their passion for people.
In an exclusive conversation with the Financial Express Online Anjali Raghuvanshi, Chief People Officer, Randstad India talked about the growing trends in the recruitment industry and role of new-age technologies like Cloud HR solutions to enhance employee experience, streamline internal processes and improve business operations. Excerpts:
How has the pandemic affected the recruitment and services industry?
The pandemic has affected the world quite drastically and almost every industry has been impacted badly including recruitment. Particularly in the recruitment industry, the business around the world was skeptical about the situation as there was some level of apprehension around hiring new people while others were even forced to lay off their staff. Most of the large organizations have kept all their hiring processes on hold as the market was severely hit and no one was sure as to when the situation would improve.
However, Randstad was resilient and sailed through this difficult phase with our vast experience in the market and are incurring profits. We had revenue growth of 7% in a challenging 2020. Today, Randstad India is one of the most admired companies in the country, a thought leader in the HR services industry, a certified ‘Great Place To Work’ and ranks in the list of India’s top 10 best workplaces in health and wellness!
