Covid - A message from the CEO

Working hard for you: a message from the CEO of Robert Half

First and foremost, I hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.

These are trying and uncertain times. Most of you are likely reading this from home instead of your office. You may not have seen coworkers or customers — or even family or friends — face-to-face in some time. While it’s essential that we adopt new ways of interacting to protect the health of our communities, doing so can bring moments of unease and isolation.

I want you to know that your colleagues at Robert Half are here to help.

We’re working safely and remotely — at full speed

Our primary focus remains the health and safety of our employees and the temporary professionals on assignment with our clients.

All of our employees have the unconditional option to work from home for as long as this public health crisis persists. Those working in an office are maintaining the social distance recommended by health authorities.

Regardless of where our teams are located or how they are working today, Robert Half is 100% operational, and we continue to serve our customers with the same integrity and passion as we did before this crisis.

Our commitment to you

No doubt this pandemic has presented new challenges for your company. We can help. Our team is committed to saying yes to customers. We can leverage leading-edge technology and remote solutions to help you maintain essential operations. For example:

  • We offer access to remote workers for critical operations from highly skilled professionals worldwide.
  • We’ve enabled secure virtual desktops through Amazon WorkSpaces so remote staff can use their personal devices to access client applications and data.
  • We’re making it easy for temporary professionals currently on assignment to perform their work remotely, if necessary.
  • We can assist your teams in transitioning to remote working arrangements.
  • We can meet with you virtually through video conferencing and video interviews.

We’re here when you need us

Robert Half has helped companies find skilled talent since 1948. We have navigated uncertain times before and helped countless clients do the same. In fact, I like to think that Robert Half is built for tough times, thanks to our decades of experience, our tenured leadership and the drive of our local staffing experts. Long story short: We’ll be here today, tomorrow and any time you need us.
