ATLANTA, March 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Randstad US, one of the largest HR services and staffing companies in the United States, announced today it has changed the name of its Randstad Pharma business to Randstad Life Sciences. The name change was made to more accurately reflect the broader nature of the company's candidate and client base beyond the pharmaceutical industry alone to attest to its expertise across the life sciences sector. That capability extends to clinical research, medical devices, biotech, food nutrition sciences, consumer products and chemicals.

Randstad US Group President Traci L. Fiatte said, "We have been matching professionals with career opportunities at the world's leading life science and biopharma companies for more than 20 years, yet our name did not reflect the wider scope of the industry expertise we offer. In fact, we have made a significant commitment to raising awareness of job opportunities across the full spectrum of STEM skills, so our decision to rename our business unit to reflect this broader focus is right in line with that objective."

Randstad Life Sciences provides staffing and other human resources services, using an operating model that relies on the expertise of recruiters who have themselves worked in the industry sectors they support. That higher level of knowledge leads to better vetting of candidate skills and experience. The result has been better matches of job candidate to job, as evidenced by high candidate and client retention rates.
