Robert Half Recognized for Leadership in Inclusion and Diversity Initiatives

MENLO PARK, Calif., Feb. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Global staffing firm Robert Half announced today it was recognized by Bloomberg and the Human Rights Campaign Foundation for its inclusion and diversity programs and efforts.  

  • Robert Half, including its consulting subsidiary Protiviti, was one of 380 companies selected for the 2021 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI), which recognizes commitment to gender equality in the workplace and the community. This is Robert Half's third consecutive year on the index. The Bloomberg GEI acknowledges public companies that are dedicated to transparency in gender reporting. The framework is based on five areas of focus: female leadership and talent, gender pay parity, inclusive organizational culture, sexual harassment policies, and pro-female branding. 
  • For the fifth consecutive year, Robert Half, including Protiviti, was named by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation as one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality. Robert Half earned a perfect score on the Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmark of U.S. businesses for LGBTQ equality in the workplace. The CEI rates companies in four categories: workforce protections, inclusive benefits, supporting an inclusive culture and corporate social responsibility, and responsible citizenship. Employers that earn a 100% score are recognized as a best place to work for LGBTQ employees.

"Our strong core values reflect our unwavering commitment to fairness, integrity and equal opportunity," said M. Keith Waddell, President and CEO of Robert Half. "At Robert Half, we will continue to advance equality and inclusion across our company and in the communities we serve."
