Randstad Canada continues to distinguish itself as a best place to work,
even in the context of major organizational change
TORONTO, April 13 /CNW Telbec/ - Randstad Canada has something to
celebrate. Today marks the fifth consecutive year Randstad has been
recognized as a "Best Place to Work" in Canada by the Great Place to

45th place to 25th.

undergoing a major transition process. In 2008, Randstad Holding

increasingly competitive and ever-changing market. We have worked hard
to make our company a great place to work. Our culture focuses on the
development of our people and knowing that it's their passion and
motivation that drives our success'', he says.
Bax credits Randstad Canada's ability to rally everyone in the company
around the corporate values as one of the key reasons behind the
company's long standing success . "On a daily basis we work
relentlessly to become industry experts and get to know our clients and
candidates. We strive to provide the best service in our industry and
always value our relationships, we continuously seek to improve and to
innovate and we always see the bigger picture by taking our community
and social responsibilities seriously'', he says.
"We believe that sharing and applying our core values in everything we
do is the best way to nurture an enjoyable and collaborative workplace
where people have opportunities to build their careers and
significantly help shape the future world of work", adds Bax.
