Our opportunity to make a difference

Being good corporate citizens has always been a core part of the way we do business, but we can't be complacent — we are always looking for ways to improve, from ensuring ethical business practices across the Group to promoting a diverse and inclusive global workforce, both within our business as well as to the thousands of clients and candidates with whom we work.

Our responsibility as an employer

We understand the impact we have on the professional and personal lives of the thousands of people we employ worldwide. That's why we remain committed to being a responsible employer, looking out for the welfare and happiness of our employees, as well as powering them to fulfil their own unique potential.

The safety and security of personal data has never been more important.

Doing our part to build a diverse global workforce

An inclusive workforce is a strong workforce. When people feel free to be their authentic selves at work, their ability to create and innovate is unhindered. In turn, their unique perspectives and experiences open up new ways for businesses to grow and achieve more.

At the Robert Walters Group, we recognise the power of diversity and the role it can play in enabling each of our clients, candidates and colleagues to fulfil their unique potential.
