Randstad USA, Celerity, and Cella Host Responsive Enterprise Series Event on Clipper Stad Amsterdam

The event is a continuation of the Responsive Enterprise series, which engages business executives on how to reimagine business and reinforce resiliency in the face of change

ATLANTA, GA – Randstad USA, Celerity, and Cella held an exclusive event aboard the Clipper Stad Amsterdam in Baltimore, Maryland on Thursday, April 14th as part of their ongoing Responsive Enterprise series. The event was attended by business leaders from across the Baltimore area and clients, and featured remarks from keynote speaker Rohit Bhargava, a Wall Street Journal and USA Today best-selling author.

The event’s keynote session followed the theme of “How to Lead the Future with Non-Obvious Thinking: See What Others Miss and Shift Your Perspective.” At the session, Bhargava offered attendees advice on how to recognize opportunities that others miss, how to be more resilient, and how to be a business leader of the future.

The event followed the release of the Responsive Enterprise study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Celerity, the premium advisory services arm of the Randstad Technologies Group dedicated to helping businesses efficiently respond to change.

The Responsive Enterprise study was designed to engage business executives and senior leaders across seven industry sectors on issues related to customer strategy, operational effectiveness, and agility. It showed that building a more responsive enterprise enables brands to deliver better customer and business outcomes, such as share price, market valuation, and customer satisfaction.

“The intention of the Responsive Enterprise series is to help businesses not only keep up with a rapidly changing strategic business landscape, but thrive in the face of these challenges,” said Randstad Technologies Group Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director,Global Professionals, Graig Paglieri. “These events are a great opportunity for business leaders to network and learn from others as they continue to adapt and grow their organizations.”

Attendees were also given the opportunity to explore the Clipper Stad Amsterdam, a historical reconstruction of a mid-19th century clipper ship. The ship serves as a tribute to the Dutch trading spirit and connection to the sea, as well as a symbol of Randstad’s global operations.
