About Workpocket

Workpocket started out as a free printed resource for HR departments, used to by Randstad to get their foot in the door of new companies.

But it stopped working - no one wanted the book, and Randstad didn’t know what to do about their flagging client numbers. So we overhauled the concept, taking the best parts from their extensive research and curating relevant articles from their book. Then we created an interactive, digital work-world where HR employees and anyone else in a company might learn about various workplace issues.
