Randstad as a company have recently teamed up with a Charity called BEAT to deliver self-esteem workshops to KS3 pupils. Working with life coaches and teachers the workshops are designed at raising self-esteem and promoting respect amongst peers and a number of schools locally have benefited from these charitable sessions.  Competitions are organised across our local authorities to design cards and posters for various events and celebrations and at Christmas we donate Selection boxes to groups of disadvantaged young people.

We have presented at local head teacher cluster meetings and schools to keep them informed of changes such as AWR, Pensions & Pay and conditions. We have recently held a seminar in Leeds for schools and businesses throughout Yorkshire aimed at building a high performance culture within teams featuring a special guest, Susie Wolff, the female Development Driver for the Williams F1 team.  We are always open to new ideas and offer to support and help our schools in any way we can.
