About Robert Half

Robert Half was founded in 1948 and is the world's largest recruitment specialist. We have been around for more than 70 years and have seen a lot of changes in that time, including many in our own organization. We are always looking for new perspectives to broaden our thinking and reshape our future.

A constant throughout our history has been our aim to help people get a job that satisfies them, and in which they can make the most of their skills and interests. That also applies to the people we recruit for our own teams. We know the difference it makes when our employees feel valued, are fairly compensated, and can make progress in their careers.

What makes us so special?

There are many reasons to consider working at Robert Half. Below you can read a few:


1. Great Place to Work

After being acclaimed by Forbes on several occasions as one of the World's Best Employers – and we are the only talent solutions company to receive this award in the Business Services and Supplies category – we have also been named as the Best Workplace in Belgium/selected as one of Belgium's Best Workplaces in the medium-sized companies category (250 to 499 employees) by the Great Place to Work Institute.

We've worked hard to achieve these accolades. Based on an extensive survey and in-depth audits, the Great Place to Work® Institute, in collaboration with Vlerick Management School, presents annual awards to companies that go the extra mile for their employees. The two define “great places to work” as companies where employees have faith in the people they work with and for, are proud of what they do, and enjoy both their job and their interaction with their colleagues.


2. Career opportunities

At Robert Half, there are no limits to where hard work and talent can take you. We strive to help all employees within our company find their professional path and develop their skills and expertise through innovative projects and an engaging, supportive and inclusive work environment. We give our employees the tools they need to succeed. With cutting-edge technology, world-class training, and skills development – including our thousands of online courses, videos, and books on a diverse range of topics – our employees can continue to learn here, throughout their careers.

It is therefore no surprise that many of Robert Half's employees have been with us for a considerable length of time. Our senior leadership consists of colleagues who have built careers within the organization, often in multiple locations around the world.


3. Work happy, work healthy

With this motto, we focus on the happiness and well-being of our employees – because they are the most important factor in us continuing to excel as a business. We take care of our employees in various ways: we allow you to find a balance between your professional and personal life by offering flexible and hybrid work, and we give you 24/7 access to psychological counselling, legal assistance and much more through an innovative platform.

Are you interested in a foreign adventure? Whether you live in Brussels, London, San Francisco or Tokyo, Robert Half probably has an office in the location of your choice. With over 300 offices in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia, Robert Half impacts the careers of professionals and companies around the world. Many of our employees also move within our company, and we are more than happy to help them relocate to a different city or country to take on their next big opportunity.


4. Stability and innovation

Robert Half has been around for a while, but that doesn't mean we're a company that's stuck in the past. We are proud of who we are and what we have achieved, but we are still constantly searching for new and different perspectives.

Our teams are innovative and always ready to take on new challenges in today's rapidly evolving business world – and that makes us one of the best talent solutions providers out there. Don't just take our word for it: Robert Half has been on Fortune's list of the “World's Most Admired Companies” every year since 1998. We are always looking for new colleagues who bring in creative and innovative ideas. We believe this is paramount for our own growth and development as a company.


5. Proper remuneration and recognition

At Robert Half, you will be rewarded for your work. As part of our Salary Guide, we conduct annual research into the current salary levels on the market. This gives us a clear idea of what competitive pay means. That would make it odd if we didn’t pay our own employees fairly. We recognize what you are worth and offer you a compensation and benefits package that is unique in the sector. This includes a Flex Income Plan, with your own budget to diversify and tailor existing benefits, a competitive basic salary, and various additional insurance policies.

In order to express our appreciation for our employees' hard work, we have developed various recognition programs in which you can participate. Winners can join us on a trip to Monaco or Las Vegas and get the chance to attend unique conferences along with colleagues from all over the world. But performance is also rewarded through a generous bonus plan.


6. Diversity, equity and inclusion

Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) are words that we do not take lightly at Robert Half. Our founder, Bob Half, campaigned from the outset for equal employment by lobbying against discriminatory recruitment policies that were common in the temporary employment sector at the time. 70 years later, we have built strong programmes to promote DEI in the workplace, and ethics is at the heart of everything we do.

We strive for a company culture in which everyone can connect and grow. As a global business, we recognize the importance of a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences being represented throughout the organization. This includes people of different ethnicities, races, religions, genders, sexual orientations, physical abilities, ages, educational backgrounds, and social classes.

Our DEI programs are built around the interests and priorities of our employees. Recent examples include our Employee Network Groups, which are internal discussion groups that arise organically around a common goal, interest, or background.


7. For the greater good

Whether you are in the talent solutions team or corporate team, your work can really contribute to changing lives. We offer job seekers opportunities they might not find on their own, allowing them to grow their careers, and at the same time we help companies find the talent they need to achieve their objectives.

Another way we change lives as a company is by making it easy for our employees to donate to causes that are close to their hearts. In addition to company-wide charity events, we offer volunteering opportunities so that our employees are involved in a way that suits them.

Through these efforts, we help our colleagues to bring about positive changes in the community, and support goals that really mean something to them. We firmly believe that these initiatives give our employees even more reasons to feel proud of working at Robert Half.
