Protiviti recognizes that volunteerism is the most direct way our employees can impact their communities. Therefore, we encourage our professionals to determine the civic-involvement opportunities that are most important to them. In addition, we are proud to support employees and their charities of choice through programs such as our matching-gifts program.
Our professionals are devoted to giving back to the communities in which they work and live. Highlights of Protiviti’s community service projects throughout the U.S. include:
