The winner of the Randstad Award in each country is based on how attractive the selected company is as a potential employer to the respondents. To determine this, we ask one simple question: “Would you like to work for this company?”

The companies are also evaluated on 16 factors that have been derived from our 13 years' experience with the Randstad Award. These factors determine the perception of the employer brand.

The 16 factors are (in no specific order):

  • Financial health
