Community support and CSR

At Robert Half, we are committed to community service. We believe that with great success comes great responsibility, and being an ethical corporate citizen is one of the ways we can provide community support in our local areas.

We recognise the importance of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and engaging with state and national causes to encourage a culture of community support. As part of this, Robert Half are patrons to a variety of CSR and community service programs which provide employees an opportunity to lend a hand.

Our offices in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Mount Waverley and Perth regularly participate in fundraising activities to support the local community. Recent examples of this include:
