Randstad Argentina is currently running a program in the shantytown Barrio 31, located in the center of Buenos Aires. Randstad has interviewed potential candidates from this neighbourhood since late July 2018, getting to know them and also providing tips and training to help them find a job. The candidates were selected on the grounds of having previously undergone three training modules with the City Government's employment office.

So far, considerable talent has been found among the 142 candidates and a match was found for 34 positions. Randstad Argentina will continue with this project in 2019, as it has proven to be a great success case for social inclusion.
