By Robert Half on October 11, 2022 at 2:00pm

At Robert Half, making sure our employees feel valued, are compensated fairly and can advance in their careers are all vital measures to create a positive and productive work environment at our company. Others are taking notice of our efforts, too: Forbes has once again named Robert Half one of the World’s Best Employers. This is Forbes’ most prestigious global employer accolade.

The annual list is based on an independent survey of nearly 150,000 employees in 57 countries. Respondents rate their employers in various areas, including image, trust, gender equality, corporate social responsibility, corporate culture and benefits.

“We are proud of our efforts to foster a culture where our employees around the world feel engaged, supported and valued,” said M. Keith Waddell, president and CEO of Robert Half. “Our enterprise values of integrity, inclusion, innovation and commitment to success are at the foundation of everything we do at Robert Half. Our employees — and their commitment to living these core values every day — are what make us a great place to work.”

A strong focus on creating a world-class employee experience

Our reputation as an ethical employer dates back more than 70 years, when Bob and Maxine Half founded the company. In the 1960s, Bob Half helped lead the fight against discriminatory employment practices. Since then, we’ve been setting the standard for employee satisfaction in several key areas:

Gender equality

In July, Forbes named Robert Half as one of the Best Employers for Women for the fourth consecutive year.

Through the Global Women’s Employee Network (GWEN) and other initiatives, we’re committed to amplifying women’s voices while creating community and growth opportunities for them at every level.

Diversity, equity and inclusion

Everyone is welcome at Robert Half. We believe that hiring underrepresented workers with different perspectives makes us stronger as a business and an employer.

In April, Robert Half was named one of Forbes’ Best Employers for Diversity for the fourth consecutive year. Companies selected for the list are recognized for inclusion efforts related to age, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation equality and general diversity, as well as feedback from an independent survey.

Ethics matter. A recent Robert Half survey found that 71% of employees would leave a company whose values didn’t align with their own. Our commitment to environmental, social and governance best practices empowers our professionals to be change-makers and advocates for the communities we serve.
