SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- RiseSmart, the leading provider of contemporary talent mobility and outplacement solutions, announced it will rebrand to Randstad RiseSmart to reflect its global expansion and holistic approach to outplacement and talent mobility solutions. The strategic move reinforces the company's globally consistent approach to assisting employees as they navigate their careers within or outside of organizations around the world.

Since 2015, the company has been part of the leading human resources services company, Randstad. Today's rebranding announcement and overbrand endorsement underscores the expansion of its global footprint, wide range of services, a unified platform and a consistent approach to delivering coaching and career services regardless of location. Randstad RiseSmart's offerings, such as career development, outplacement and redeployment, help human capital leaders navigate workforce changes and future-proof their talent.

"The way companies think about and manage talent has fundamentally changed. Our customers are no longer just looking for straightforward HR services, but rather a trusted partner that can work with them to seamlessly identify, manage and move talent where it is needed most," said Rebecca Henderson, CEO of Randstad Global Businesses and executive board member. "The tighter integration of RiseSmart into our broad portfolio of enterprise solutions allows us to drive business success for our customers with the most effective end-to-end talent mobility solutions on the market."

Talent is a core business driver that must be managed effectively in today's changing environment, and CEOs across the globe are placing an increased emphasis on attracting and retaining talent. A study by McKinsey found that companies who have effective talent management programs in place outperform their competitors financially.

"We believe that there is greatness in everyone, that careers never stop evolving and that the most successful organizations are those that unlock the potential of their workforce," said Dan Davenport, president and general manager of Randstad RiseSmart.
