Staffing Industry Analysts, the global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions, annually recognizes a diverse group of influential European staffing leaders - individuals who are elevating the ecosystem and taking it forward – in its Staffing 100 Europe list. The list is not a ranking but rather a way to celebrate a set of individuals whose accomplishments, dedication and drive are making a difference to work today, and to what work will look like in the future. The list, now it in its seventh year, is based on the impact and influence individuals have had on the workforce solutions ecosystem over the past twelve months.
“The 2020 Staffing 100 Europe leaders stand out in an unprecedented year, going above and beyond in navigating the ‘new normal’ as the world faces a global pandemic and a climate of intense uncertainty,” stated SIA. “We congratulate this year’s honourees as they continue to lead theirs teams in a significantly changed world, staying ahead of the trends, meeting the disruption head on, and doing so with courage, compassion, creativity and commitment.”
Rob Zandbergen is Managing Corporate Executive Officer at Recruit Holdings Co., Ltd. and the head of Recruit group’s global staffing business unit, RGF Staffing. With annual revenue of approximately 12 billion US dollars, RGF Staffing is one of the world’s leading HR service providers, headquartered in the Netherlands.
‘A recognition for RGF Staffing’
Rob: “I’m very proud of my nomination on the SIA Staffing 100 Europe list. I don't consider this a personal nomination, but a recognition of the work that the entire RGF Staffing family does each and every day to accomplish our mission. 2020 was a challenging year for everyone, with unprecedented obstacles. Thanks to our tireless efforts, we have been able to continue to provide new opportunities for our employees and our customers.”
Creating greater value
Previously, Rob was CEO and CFO of the publicly listed USG People. He has been active in the staffing sector since early 2003. Under his leadership, the staffing business of Recruit and the activities of USG People were successfully combined in a global business unit as part of the Recruit group network. Rob: “I am passionate about further developing our industry and growing the position of RGF Staffing in the current times in which people and technology can create even greater value.”
