CEO of Randstad Global takes part in charity work in Switzerland

Randstad launched the "Randstad With Heart" program in 38 countries in the fall of last year. As part of this project, Jacques van den Broek, CEO of Randstad Global, visited Switzerland to take part in some charity work at the Ocean Youth Sailing Club in Bottighofen, together with colleagues from Randstad Switzerland.

Catamaran building with Ocean Youth Sailing

Ocean Youth Sailing has been working on the construction of a catamaran in Bottighofen for 3 years - the intention is to use the catamaran to offer young people sailing courses in the ocean. The CEO of Randstad Global made the trip from Amsterdam to Bottighofen and spent a day helping out with the construction.

Fitting makeshift windows and laminating seats

In a large tent situated on an old horse pasture, where the catamaran is being built, a total of five Randstad colleagues fitted makeshift wooden windows and laminated the seats for the saloon with glass fiber. "The work that has already been done here is amazing, and I'm thrilled that I was able to make my own contribution to the construction of this catamaran", said an enthusiastic Jacques van den Broek. Head of Construction Lukas Ruppen said of the group's input: "I'm pleased that the makeshift windows are now installed so that we can start painting the outside without everything inside getting covered in paint too".

Randstad With Heart

"Randstad With Heart" is a global program that allows over 38,000 Randstad employees to do eight hours of charity work per year during their normal working hours. The colleagues themselves can choose which charitable organization they want to help support.
