Around the mid-to-late 1980s, the company altered its focus from relatively undifferentiated temporary light and clerical staffing to temporary workers at high skill levels. Robert Half International achieved this via a new professional staffing division method. It is operational in over 150 locations in the United States and even launched a campaign to re-purchase many separate franchises. The company went public in 1980 and expanded its operations in Europe in 1993 by including speciality groups that focus on legal, technology, and creative service personnel. In 1991, it acquired The Affiliates, later renamed to Robert Half Legal, which provided temporary and permanent legal administrative, permanent paralegal, and other legal support personnel. The company became the primary information provider for government agencies and other entities requiring data and employment trends.
Other than staffing, the company also provides other services like independent risk consulting and Information Technology consulting. The company in 2003 was able to buy back the last of a few independent franchises. Robert Half ranked at 482 in the Fortune 500 list of World’s Most Admired Companies and is 16,000 employees strong. It ranked at 411 in the 2016 list of America’s Best Employers. Robert Half International Inc. shares are traded at the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “RHI.”;
