For many years, employees at Robert Half have supported numerous charities across Australia and around the world, through both individual efforts and team activities. To demonstrate how integral community service is to Robert Half, we offer every employee two days of paid leave each year to volunteer for a nominated charity.
To support Australia’s first and oldest charity organisation, three staff members of Robert Half cycled 500km in just over five days from Launceston to Hobart to raise awareness and money for The Benevolent Society. In total, the team raised nearly $6,500 in donations for this incredible cause.
For the second year in a row, staff from Robert Half’s Asia Pacific region shaved their heads to support the fight against children’s cancer at an event hosted in Hong Kong. In total, Robert Half donated USD$35,000 to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation towards research efforts.
With the prevalence of homelessness in Australia reaching astounding numbers, the Robert Half Melbourne branch volunteered to join the Melbourne City Mission “Sleep at the G” event where over 1,000 Melbourne locals slept at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, with nothing but a sleeping bag to experience what life is like for many Australians today. Additionally, they raised $1,500 to support Melbourne City Mission’s ongoing efforts.
Make a Wish is a global charity that grants wishes to critically ill children. Robert Half has organised global events across 19 countries to help raise money for this incredible institution.
Staff from Robert Half’s Auckland office collected public donations in support of Daffodil Day. Each year on the last Friday of August, over 9,000 volunteers nationwide in New Zealand collect donations for the Cancer Society with funds going towards providing free support services, information and cancer research.
Robert Half has partnered with EcoMatcher, a Certified B corporation, to purchase and plant 1,000 trees in Bektel, Indonesia. Through this program, the team have had a direct impact on the local community and the environment, including supplying local farmers with work, supporting the local biodiversity, and sequestering over 15,000 kgs of carbon to reduce Robert Half’s carbon footprint.
