Dominique Hermans - CEO Randstad Northern Europe


Dominique Hermans, Randstad's Chief Executive for Northern Europe and member of the executive leadership team, grew in 22 years with the company as the largest global talent organization. She started her career in engineering and quickly found the mix of technical and human needs to fit. Hermans joined Randstad in 2001, moving from regional to national manager, where she would later become CEO of Randstad Group Netherlands in 2021. Today she leads 13 European countries for Randstad. Hermans remains committed to making the workplace better for everyone and serves as a thought leader for inclusion and fairness.

The world of work is constantly changing. Today, people think about work and career differently than previous generations. As a result, the need for equitable and specialized work solutions has increased enormously. It’s Randstad's global ambition to be the partner for talent. We realize that work is important in a person's life. Randstad has been bringing together talents and organizations worldwide for 60 years. Not only once, but throughout their whole working life, as a true partner for their career. This started in 1960, when Randstad founder Frits Goldschmeding brought his very first temporary employee to her new job on the back of a bicycle, so that she could find her new workplace and arrive on time. From this attitude we allow employees and organizations to flourish. Because that is important to us: bringing out the best in all parties.

Helping people find a suitable job and help companies achieve their goals through their workforce, now and in the future, is Dominique’s everydays passion. From her engineering background she strongly believes in the role of technology in that journey. From her being a thought leader for inclusion and equity she sees the value of a human centric approach. The combination of both, makes her thrive.
