Herman Nijns, the CEO of Randstad Group Belgium & Luxembourg, will take on an additional role at Randstad Group in Europe as of May 1. As Regional Managing Director, he will now be responsible for the Nordics, i.e. the Scandinavian countries Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, where Randstad is also present.
Herman Nijns started his career in 1988 at Interlabor Interim, part of Randstad, and has worked through all management levels within the organisation. He is a board member in several sector associations in Belgium and was president of Federgon, the Belgian federation of private employment agencies and HR service providers, from 2017 to 2020. Last February, he was elected as the new European president of World Employment Confederation, the voice of the private employment sector at the European level that represents both national federations and HR service providers from across Europe.
“Herman Nijns has a long track record in our organisation. He joined the company 33 years ago as a consultant, started his first managerial position in 1990, and has led Randstad Group BeLux very successfully since 2005. In recent years, Randstad Group has become a clear market leader and a broad HR service provider. Herman has also played a vital role in various international initiatives. In addition to his role as CEO of Randstad Group BeLux, he will now also add regional responsibilities in the Nordics to his portfolio,” says Jacques van den Broek, CEO of Randstad Holding.
Every day, Randstad plays a crucial role in matching talent and supporting business growth. After all these years, this broad social role still motivates me enormously and I am therefore honoured to be able to take on additional responsibilities in Scandinavia alongside my role as CEO of Randstad Group BeLux as of 1 May. I am very grateful that I can still learn new things and take on wider responsibilities within the company where I started as a consultant 33 years ago. This is only possible thanks to my strong Belgian team members who are an incredible support to me, because I know very well that as a leader, you are only as strong as your team. I am therefore also looking forward to working with my Scandinavian colleagues, from whom I will be able to learn a lot and with whom I will be able to help develop the ‘Randstad = work’ strategy in Northern Europe.
