Randstad announces its new “live chat” technology tool, which is now available on its official website. This is an online service that allows visitors to instantly communicate with Randstad recruiters via instant messaging.

The chat appears as a “live chat” box in the browser window opened by any device and the visitor has the opportunity to exchange written messages with one of Randstad recruiters in real time, by typing their message into the chat box. In case the visitor wants to communicate with Randstad recruiters via the “live chat” tool outside of business hours, they can simply type and send their message and they will receive a reply from Randstad the next business day.

Randstad’s goal is to offer a positive, personal and seamless digital experience through this online tool, by providing people looking for a job or people interested in our HR services & solutions with instant support and service.

As part of its “tech & touch” strategy, Randstad launches new technology tools, playing an important role in the digital transformation process. As a team, we put humans first, invest in new technologies and adopt digital HR solutions and flexible recruitment tools in order to serve our candidates and our clients with the best possible way. We thus achieve the best possible connection between them and try to deliver a true human experience.

According to Jacques van den Broek, CEO Randstad: "We know that technology can support us all in our daily lives and we are already working hard to make technology work for us. But from our long history we know above all that the human connection is the most important part of our business. With our in-depth understanding of the world of work and our passion for people we help people and businesses to move forward. It is our personal approach, supported by state-of-the-art technology, that truly sets us apart in the global world of work."
