Q: What if a candidate isn’t set up to work remotely?

Virtual workspaces are a managed Desktop as a Service (DaaS) solution that allows remote staff to access web-based systems. The interface is identical to Window 10 and will provide candidates with the access they need. Contact us today or submit a hiring request form.

Q: What happens with a candidate’s virtual workspaces desktop and loaner laptop once their assignment ends?

When a candidate’s assignment ends, please promptly notify your local Robert Half recruitment consultant. We’ll immediately ensure that their virtual workspaces desktop and all its components are erased. If the candidate has a Robert Half-issued device, we’ll remotely deactivate their access to all files and folders they’ve saved on OneDrive. We’ll also provide the candidate with instructions for returning the loaner laptop to our office.
