(STL.News) – Global staffing firm Robert Half has been selected as an honoree for the East Bay Leadership Council’s 9th annual Philanthropy Awards, which recognizes companies, individuals and service organizations that bring an increased focus to the economic health and overall quality of life within Alameda and Contra Costa Counties.
Robert Half encourages employees to take a hands-on role in their communities. During the company’s annual Week of Service, 700 Corporate Services employees in the Bay Area supported 22 local nonprofits, logging 1,700 volunteer hours renovating playgrounds, packing meals and medical supplies, cleaning up outdoor spaces, and more. This fall, more than 250 employees raised over $25,000 by participating in the American Heart Association Heart Walks in San Ramon and Danville, Calif. Other examples of community outreach include annual back-to-school and holiday drives, an employee-driven local grants program, and the organization’s signature Suit Drive to benefit Dress for Success and other nonprofits.
“Robert Half is committed to community outreach and philanthropy programs that positively impact the places we live and work,” said Reesa Staten, senior vice president of Corporate Communications for Robert Half. “We’re honored to be recognized by the East Bay Leadership Council and proud of our teams in the local area and beyond who remain dedicated to our global mission to serve.”
