- Social Responsibility
At Protiviti, we value the importance of being a good corporate citizen, and as such, we constantly hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards both in the workplace and outside of it. Integrity and responsibility are two of the eight core values under which we operate. We believe in doing the right thing even if it may compromise our short-term profitability. We don’t waver from the truth or crater under pressure. We are willing to be sufficiently creative and flexible, but always operate under a high moral, ethical and legal standard.
Our commitment goes beyond our clients and extends into the communities in which our people live and work. Protiviti employees around the world are making strides in bettering their areas thanks to the efforts of local committees devoted to coordinating philanthropy projects throughout the year. In addition, Protiviti believes in each employee’s potential to effect change in his or her community, and to that end, the company provides several avenues to support employees’ individual efforts, including a matching-gifts programme and grants for employees to contribute to the organizations where they volunteer.
As a wholly owned subsidiary of Robert Half International Inc., we are proud to follow in the footsteps of our parent company’s commitment to corporate citizenship. Robert Half's community relations programme, Leading by Example, focuses on education and workforce development initiatives. The programme is proud to sponsor leading global charities and a variety of scholarships. Robert Half also is a member of Boston College’s Center for Corporate Citizenship.
iCare – Protiviti’s Community Involvement Programme
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. We are proud to support employees and their charities of choice through programmes such as our matching-gifts programme.
I on Hunger – A Global Effort to Feed Hungry People and Improve Lives
Since 2014, we have delivered more than 3 million meals to hungry people around the world through our i on Hunger initiative. This has been accomplished by partnering with leading hunger organisations and bringing together our people and our clients in meal packing and meal delivery efforts globally. We believe that nourishing people’s bodies provides a pathway for people to nourish their minds and enrich their lives by removing the daily insecurity that is created by persistent hunger.

Sustainability and the Protiviti Green Team
As a professional services business, our carbon footprint – with its associated climate change risks – is low when compared to those of most other companies. As we grow, we always have environmental impact as a priority in our decision making, including proximity to public transportation, building recycling programmes and building certifications(such as LEED certification).
In the last few years, we have reduced our paper usage by using more digital materials and have transitioned from standard desktop computers to smaller more efficient laptops. We have increased the use of remanufactured toner cartridges and in the last year this comprised approximately 27% of the total toner used. We continue to donate old pieces of electronic equipment to nonprofit organisations and when equipment reaches its useful life, we work with e-waste companies to recycle component parts, such as copper and metal.
Protiviti’s Green Champions, comprised of employees from around the world, has been instrumental in developing a guidebook available to all employees that highlights unique local office initiatives and simple tips to follow to be more sustainable. This group regularly published internal articles that focus on issues important to the environment and promotes contests to connect our employees across the globe in environmental causes. Their efforts are paying off, and in 2014, Protiviti was one of 18 companies across the U.S. selected as a winner of the prestigious National Best & Brightest Sustainable Companies award given by the National Association for Business Resources.
