MENLO PARK, Calif., March 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Global talent solutions and business consulting firm Robert Half has promoted Susan Haseley to chief environmental, social, governance (ESG) and diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) officer, leading enterprise strategy and programming for Robert Half, including its consulting subsidiary, Protiviti. 

"As our commitment to ESG and DEI continues to deepen, this enterprise-wide leadership position is designed to align and strengthen our efforts globally," said M. Keith Waddell, president and chief executive officer of Robert Half. "Under Susan's leadership, we will continue to focus on initiatives that help us sustain a people-first approach in our workplace and enhance our support of the communities where we live and work." 

Haseley has been with the organization since 2002, joining Protiviti when it was first established. In her most recent role as Protiviti executive vice president, she led ESG and DEI initiatives globally, including the successful launch of the company's 11 employee network groups and the Inclusion Champion Network, which supports diversity programming at the local office level.
