2011 Corporate Philanthropy

Since 1948, Robert Half International has helped job seekers find fulfilling employment and companies locate highly skilled workers. Our leading by example philanthropy program is focused on education and workforce development, two areas in which our expertise can make a difference in people’s lives at every stage of their careers.

We are proud of our relationship with Dress for Success Worldwide, a nonprofit organization that provides disadvantaged women with professional attire, career-development tools and a network of support. Robert Half is the industry-exclusive sponsor of Dress for Success.

“The support we have received from Robert Half International is immeasurable. This is a company that understands the importance of providing careerdevelopment services, and, in doing so, our women have the tools needed to succeed,” said Joi Gordon, CEO of Dress for Success Worldwide.

For nearly a decade, Robert Half has worked with Dress for Success on an annual suit drive to benefit low-income job seekers. For two weeks each year, employees in our offices across north America encourage their clients, candidates and each other to donate interview-appropriate clothes and accessories to job seekers looking to re-enter the workforce. More than 170,000 items have been distributed to Dress for Success and other organizations since the start of the suit drive.

“Since 1997, Dress for Success has helped women build the confidence and skills they need for success,” said Reesa Staten, senior vice president of corporate communications. “We value the opportunity to be part of their mission to empower women to support themselves by finding meaningful new careers.”
