From the Chairman and CEO
From our core, Robert Half is a people business.
We help companies find experienced professionals to meet critical business needs, and we provide skilled workers with rewarding career opportunities. We also foster a work environment where our employees are empowered to bring businesses and people together by making great job matches. It follows then that our corporate citizenship activities also are focused on the people whose lives we touch every day.
As a business that helps people find jobs, Robert Half has a stake in building tomorrow’s workforce. That is why we have a natural interest in programs that support education and workforce development, and many of our corporate giving and volunteer programs are focused in these areas.
When disaster strikes, the impact on local communities is often devastating. We contribute annually to the American Red Cross, which provides much needed support in times of crisis around the world, and to the Canadian Red Cross. Each year, Robert Half’s gifts are designed to provide resources where and when funds are needed most.
This citizenship report also details our company’s efforts to minimize our environmental impact. These activities range from grassroots programs sponsored by our employees to more formal, repeatable business practices designed to promote sustainability.

Our social responsibility programs are not stand-alone initiatives for Robert Half. They serve as the framework for how we do business. In fact, we recently expanded our mission statement to better communicate our long-held commitment to our clients, job candidates, employees and the communities in which we live and work.
Our mission statement also reflects the results of our most recent employee survey. Our employees continue to let us know where we can enhance our citizenship programs and business practices.
We are excited about the ways these ideas will shape our company’s future.
Sincerely,

Harold M. Messmer, Jr.
Chairman and CEO
