Media release: Randstad recognised at ACES Awards and HR Vendors of the Year 2016
Randstad is proud to recognised as a leading recruitment firm by industry leaders - with its recent wins at the Asia Corporate Excellence & Sustainability Awards and the Human Resources Vendors of the Year Awards.



The three prestigious awards include:

Asia Corporate Excellence & Sustainability Awards
  • Industry Champion of the Year - Randstad
  • Eminent Leaders in Asia - Michael Smith
Human Resources Vendors of the Year
  • Best Recruitment Firm (senior management roles over US$10k per month) – Silver
The awards come after sustained growth for Randstad in Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia under Managing Director Michael Smith’s leadership. This growth came from increasing efficiency from consultants in terms of gross profit per consultant, and not just additional headcount in the business - often a quick way of increasing revenue.

The Asia Corporate Excellence & Sustainability (ACES) Awards, organised by MORS Group, awards leading organisations and leaders operating in the Asian region who revolutionise leadership and sustainability. Nominated organisations each undergo a management process audit to contest in one of seven categories of Awards which measures organisations against others on a similar playing field. The ACES Awards, now in its third year, saw over 180 nominations this year with representatives from 44 corporations from around Asia attending the awards ceremony.

Randstad was awarded the Industry Champion of the Year award, given to organisations who are leaders in the respective industry by maintaining a competitive edge, setting industry trends and having the ability to evolve with the dynamic changes of the industry they serve.

The Eminent Leaders in Asia award is presented to exemplary individuals leading high performances businesses. Individuals cannot be nominated for this award and are instead hand-picked by the judges. Managing Director for Randstad South/Southeast Asia Michael Smith was given this prestigious recognition alongside Aireen Omar, Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia Berhad.

The HR Vendors of the Year Awards, organised by the Human Resources magazine, is one of the largest awards recognising the HR industry in Asia. The awards, judged by senior HR leaders, recognises organisations that set the benchmark for the HR industry in Singapore, and across Asia. Randstad Singapore was awarded the Silver trophy for Best Recruitment Firm for Roles over $10k, highlighting its capabilities and expertise in the recruitment of senior professional talent in the workforce.

Michael Smith, Managing Director for Randstad Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia noted, “We’re all incredibly proud of the recognition given to us by the ACES and Vendors of the Year awards. We’ve set ambitious goals for our business across all three countries and continue to push ourselves to achieve service excellence for both our clients and candidates.
