Q: What do I have to consider when visiting a Robert Half office and what actions have you taken to minimize the potential health and business impacts of COVID-19?
In response to COVID-19, Robert Half has implemented a number of new procedures around social distancing, maximum occupancy, hygiene and cleaning practices.
For anyone entering to the office, they will be asked to observe the following important guidelines:

- Ensuring the 1,5 metre social distancing rules are maintained whilst in all areas of the office, meeting rooms and shared areas.
- Follow the recommended hygiene guidelines (e.g. thorough hand washing).
- If you have been in contact with anyone who have coronavirus, or if you are feeling unwell before your meeting, please do contact us and we’ll arrange a virtual meeting instead.
- As a precaution we do not provide any food or writing materials - so please feel free to bring your own drink, for example.
- If you belong to the group of "particularly vulnerable persons", please let us know in advance.
