SAN JOSE, CALIF., NOVEMBER 18, 2021 — Randstad RiseSmart today announced that it has been named a “Leader” in Everest Group’s inaugural “Outplacement and Career Transition Services PEAK Matrix® Assessment 2022.” In addition to being named a Leader — which recognizes a provider’s ability to successfully deliver outplacement and career transition services – Randstad RiseSmart achieved the highest rating in the Vision and Capability Category.

“We are thrilled to be recognized as a Leader in Everest Group’s very first outplacement and career transition services assessment and are proud to receive high positioning both in terms of our ability to deliver outstanding services and provide a meaningful market impact for both our clients and participants,” said Dan Davenport, CEO of Randstad RiseSmart. “We believe this designation is also reflected in our Net Promoter Score of 86, which is the highest in our industry, and is indicative of our ongoing track record of delivering innovative solutions to organizations that make a meaningful difference in the lives and careers of their employees.
