With great success comes great responsibility and being an ethical corporate citizen is important to Robert Half. We recognise the importance of serving our communities and Robert Half supports both a variety of local and international programmes which provide employees an opportunity to lend a hand.
In Australia, we support the Starlight Children’s Foundation, which brightens the lives of seriously ill and hospitalised children and their families. Each year, our employees volunteer by selling merchandise on Starlight Day. In addition, we hold events with our clients and candidates to raise further funds for this worthwhile cause.
August 2010 saw four members of the Robert Half leadership team embark on The National Three Peaks Challenge, which involved climbing the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales within 24 hours. Our Asia Pacific managing director, David Jones, was part of this team and after successful completion of the challenge, a combined total of just under $10,000 was raised for our nominated charities including UNICEF, Motor Neurone Disease Association, World Cancer Research Fund UK, SOS Children’s Villages and the American Cancer Society.
