1. Robert Half puts its employees first
I have been honored to work for a company for 26 years that puts its employees first. Robert Half has given me the best of both worlds, where I have been able to have a career and raise my two sons. The company has afforded me flexibility over all these years and always supported me when I needed it the most. The sky’s the limit at Robert Half.
Jill Brodbeck, branch director
2. Robert Half offers limitless opportunities for women
Robert Half is a great place for women to work because of the opportunities the company provides. In my case, that’s been the opportunity to move from a data entry job to a senior manager job, to be an amazing mom to my two children and show them what hard work and dedication can achieve, and to be a wife to my husband of 13 years and support him during his military career and in his desire to become a teacher.
Opportunity — women can make it whatever they want it to be, and Robert Half is there to support us. We have the opportunity to develop, learn and grow with a phenomenal company.
Kara Balluck, district operations senior manager
I have been with Robert Half for 25 years, and the career opportunities have been limitless. I have had some amazing mentors along the way who were strong advocates for me in my career based on work performance and results. These influencers have helped open doors and assist me in continued career growth.

3. Robert Half provides a rewarding career and family balance
I joined Robert Half because it was a global leader in its industry. Two decades later, Robert Half still lives up to its reputation of being innovative in the talent solutions strategies it provides to our clients. And I remain at Robert Half because it has provided the perfect balance between offering a rewarding career and allotting the flexibility to prioritize family.

4. Robert Half is a great place for women who want growth
Robert Half has been a great place to work because it has provided me with professional and personal growth. I have been mentored by several great women (and men) over the years. And this career mentorship provided the growth development needed to go from an entry-level role within the organization to a district director role.

5. Robert Half provides inclusion, support and a positive company culture
Robert Half is one of the best places for women to work because the company has cultivated an inclusive culture where women can excel.

And through our Supplier Inclusion program, Robert Half supports professional organizations like the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) that promote and certify women-owned businesses.
