Tokyo, Oct 25, 2012 - (JCN Newswire) - Robert Walters PLC (LSE: RWA),
Japan's leading international recruitment consultancy, recently organised
volunteer trips for staff on June 22-23 and September 28-29, 2012 to continue
its relief efforts in Tohoku. The Tohoku region in northern Japan was one of
the hardest hit areas following the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami. Since
March 2011, over 43% of Robert Walters Japan staff have volunteered in the
region during four company-sponsored trips.
In association with the non-profit organisation ReRoots Japan, Robert Walters
volunteers were tasked with clearing debris from the March tsunami
contaminating farmland for local families. Over the course of the relief trips
much of the soil was recovered for use, a task that would have taken over one
year for the families to complete on their own.
Robert Walters is extremely proud that over 43% of our staff in Japan have
volunteered in the Tohoku region with the Group. The high level of involvement
of our staff reinforces Robert Walters' commitment to corporate social
responsibility (CSR). In addition to the Tohoku relief efforts, our support
extends to a number of other charity initiatives including food banks,
corporate sponsorships and local children's homes.
To attend or to find out how your organisation can get involved, please
