Randstad and Formula 1

This is also true for employees at Randstad, and Williams share Randstad’s core value in “striving for perfection”. Randstad’s ability to attract, coach and retain the best people for its global client base is testament to the fact that we live by this core value.

What happens when unemployed young people build a square-rigger as a job creation programme? The result is a reconstruction of a historical sailing ship from the 19th century and one of the most fascinating clippers in the world.

The hull of the sailing ship was built on the Oranjewerft in 1997 and the rest was finished by the Amsterdam Maritime Museum through an impressive job-creation programme for unemployed young people. The ship was completed in 2000 and has since been used for incentive trips, and trade fairs and congresses in the harbour.

Zermatt Unplugged

Founded in 2007 by Thomas Sterchi and Marco Godat as a singer and songwriter festival, Zermatt Unplugged has increasingly developed into a meeting point for fans of unadulterated sounds. Musicians and bands such as Suzanne Vega, Chris de Burgh, Alanis Morissette, Billy Idol, Lionel Richie, Jason Mraz, Stephan Eicher, OneRepublic or Mando Diao have been inspired by the Unplugged idea, and have performed on the Marquee and Club stages of the festival.

And Randstad is delighted to play since 2012 a significant role in supporting the music festival as co-sponsor and staffing partner.
