When President Obama and the CBI both call for consolidation, it's time to take notice.

A few weeks ago, US President Barack Obama asked the US Congress for the authority to consolidate trade and business related parts of the federal government to untangle what he called a bureaucratic maze. He said he wanted to merge six departments and agencies into one, in a move that would effectively eliminate the Commerce Department. “With this authority, we would help businesses grow, save businesses time and save taxpayer dollars,” he said.

And, addressing Chancellor George Osborne, CBI director-general John Cridland said ‘fiscal consolidation is vital in a more challenging growth environment.’

Working with local government and not-for-profit sectors through Randstad’s specialist business divisions has given us unique capabilities underpinned by an ability to deliver cost, quality and process efficiencies. As our customers have consolidated, so have we. Our public sector business levels now mirror the working population in this sector, and our model reflects the demographics of society. Inspired to -imagine what we can do together” we developed the ‘Master Vendor ‘ solution to offer our public sector customers with a -one-stop” solution providing access candidates across all job roles (including teachers, social workers, carers, clerical, financial, site maintenance, HR and executive roles).

As Randstad developed that deep understanding of the public sector and its focus in supporting service users, this ability now allows us to deliver across all skillsets. Randstad’s industry leading -Gold standard compliance” model ensures effective safeguarding, process and legal compliance on a proactive 24/7/365 basis, with an OJEU (UK procurement legislation) compliant contract. We are expert in managing the impacts of Agency Workers Regulations (AWR) and we have access to government funding for those with learning disabilities and offer programmes to support service users to fulfill their potential in workplaces.

Randstad’s specialist business divisions combine to provide the local government and not for profit sectors with unique service capabilities underpinned by an ability to deliver cost, quality and process efficiencies across our clients’ organisations, delivering a wide range of temporary, contract and permanent recruitment services to local authorities, universities, schools, charities and other not-for-profit organisations, with new customers added every month. Randstad is leading the field in Social Care and Education support in the UK and has a proven track record in delivering total cost of labour reductions allowing redistribution of funds to other key services.
