Social Responsibility

Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Journey



At Protiviti, we are driven by our core values of integrity, inclusion, and innovation. We believe that we succeed through teamwork, diversity, and respect for each other. Our diverse solution offerings require a diverse set of high-performing professionals from a variety of backgrounds. We use a team-based approach which fosters an environment that is inclusive, collaborative, and even family-like. It is essential to our business and to our success that everyone feels included on our team. Everyone’s ideas and contributions will be considered in our problem- solving work, to ensure that they are empowered.

We believe embracing diversity, equity, and inclusion are the right and responsible things to do, and we also know they are vital to our success. Broadening our capabilities by tapping into diverse backgrounds and experiences is how we can best serve our clients. As a global organization, we need a global team of professionals, each bringing unique perspectives to provide for our clients. 

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Initiatives

Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion initiatives are designed to attract, develop, and retain the most talented professionals in the market. We seek to recruit and retain a diverse employee population including people of different race, gender, age, sexual orientation, or any other dimension of diversity. Each of us has a different experience to contribute to our company and to our clients. It is the breadth of these experiences, and how they all work together, that makes us succeed. 

Our Inclusion Champions Network is a diverse spectrum of individuals from different offices, bringing together employees from across solutions and career levels to design and implement diversity programming. Serving as change agents, these individuals connect people on a local level to the bigger strategy – through events, educational programming, and Employee Network Groups.

Employee Network Groups

Employee Network Groups are local, grass-roots groups that organize both in-person and online to focus on promoting diversity initiatives within the company. While the activities in these groups are driven by employees, they are supported by leadership and provide our employees an “Opportunity to Have an Impact” as promised in our People Promises.

Supplier Inclusion

Protiviti, a wholly owned subsidiary of Robert Half International, believes in building a diverse base of employees, clients, job candidates and suppliers that strengthens our position as a market leader. We are committed to developing successful relationships with minority-, woman-, veteran- and disabled veteran-owned businesses to meet the needs of our customers.

A diverse business enterprise refers to a business that is at least 51 percent owned by a member of a minority group, including African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, veterans and disabled veterans. A woman-owned business refers to a business that is at least 51 percent owned by a woman or women.

Lowering Financial Barriers to Opportunity | Diverse Supplier Grant Initiative

Protiviti is proud to partner with JPMorgan Chase in the Diverse Supplier Grant Initiative. This program is aimed at providing diverse-owned businesses, with an emphasis on Black, Hispanic, and Latino-owned businesses, access to growth capital they need to more effectively compete and secure corporate contracts from companies like ours, JPMorgan Chase, and the Fortune 500.

Meeting minimum requirements for doing business with large corporations can often be cost-prohibitive for diverse-owned small businesses. This program is being funded by a combination of contributions from JPMorgan Chase as well as other corporations like ours with an interest in fostering the success of diverse suppliers.

Through this initiative we aim to lower common financial barriers diverse businesses experience when seeking opportunities with large corporations. Our collective goal is to deliver a multi-year grant program that is agile and scalable to meet the rising demand for emerging Black and Hispanic businesses in corporate supply chains. JPMorgan Chase, as the sponsor of this initiative, partnered with the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) and certified 501(c)(3), to administer the initiative end-to-end.
