Melbourne’s Gooroo seals global deal with Randstad

Melbourne-based strategic workforce planning and analytics platform vendor Gooroo has signed a three-year deal with global HR services and recruiting company Randstad, following a three-month pilot programme by Ranstad of Gooroo’s Mindspace technology.

Under the deal, Randstad will use Gooroo’s Mindspace technology across its consulting divisions to help its customers make better business decisions based on an improved understanding of the way people think and their contribution to the organisation.

The deal also sees Randstad approved to resell Gooroo licences to customers, further increasing Gooroo’s footprint and distribution.

Frank Ribuot, chief executive of Randstad (ANZ, South-East Asia & India), says, “Gooroo has demonstrated to us that their technology is at the leading edge. We are excited about bringing this capability to our customers as they prepare themselves for the future of work. We are very much looking forward to working with the Gooroo team to push our innovation agenda and help us deliver market-leading services that will grow our business and that of our clients.”

Gooroo’s Mindspace technology models the way that brain, mind, and consciousness are integrated, to map an individual’s likely decision-making patterns in specific settings and environments, and it  can be used to understand the capabilities needed to develop in children and existing workforces to prepare them for the roles of the future.

Malcolm Peak, national director HR Consulting at Randstad, says, “We’re extremely impressed with the Gooroo platform and although we still have a lot to learn about its potential, we can already see considerable benefit for our customers and our own business. The depth, breadth and accuracy of insight that Gooroo is able to generate (about individuals and teams) in just a few minutes is genuinely surprising and market-leading.”

Greg Muller, founder and chief executive at Gooroo, said the deal with Randstad represents an important strategic step in Gooroo’s commercialisation journey and “considering the scale of the Randstad operations, both locally and globally, we are enthused about where this will take Gooroo”.
