THE challenge

A competitive labor market

Recruitment managers in staffing companies grapple with numerous challenges in today’s labor market. The scarcity of skilled workers, shifting demographics, remote work, and increased labor market mobility necessitate smarter and faster strategies.
To navigate these complexities, having a reliable technology partner with a long-term vision is invaluable.


Long-term collaboration with Textkernel

For years, Randstad Germany has collaborated with Textkernel, forging a powerful alliance to pioneer breakthrough technological solutions and overcome industry challenges together.

This partnership enables Randstad to leverage Textkernel’s cutting-edge technologies, particularly the Automatic Pre Matching (APM) solution, which rapidly searches talent pools, delivering results in less than 0.1 seconds on average. This groundbreaking solution equips Randstad with the ability to place candidates faster, an impressive feat given their extensive database of vacancies and vast workforce demands.


Propelling Randstad recruitment capabilities to new heights

The TK Portal project aimed to enhance Randstad’s APM solution, unifying system landscapes, streamlining recruitment management, and enabling new use cases.

This project was driven by the evolving recruitment landscape, where remote work and increased mobility have expanded opportunities beyond geographical boundaries. Additionally, the digitization of internal databases has led to a data surge, necessitating additional technological support for recruiters to navigate effectively.

THE Result

The outstanding results of the new matching environment speak for themselves:
“The system is being utilized more than ever. We now handle 10,000 search queries per week, resulting in approximately 5,300 successful matches per query. Our top users conduct 751 searches per month, potentially translating into 751 job placements.”
