The Reno, NV branch of Express Employment Professionals, which is a national employment agency franchise with offices across various states, has signed up with the Foundation of Hope. This was in keeping with the business' slogan to build success and hope. Their goal is not just to provide people with work, but also to rebuild an entire community.
Michele Davies, from the Express Employment Professionals branch in Reno, says: "A wise man once said that through adversity comes opportunity, and we fully believe in that. Express Employment is not just about growing businesses and careers, it is also about building communities. Each franchise office stands for that, and we have now made a public commitment to the Foundation of Hope and will utilize this to return the Reno community to its glory."
The unemployment rate in Reno currently stands at 5.7%, which is still much higher than what it was before the financial crisis. At its peak in January 2011, the unemployment rate in Reno was 14%, which had a devastating impact on the community as a whole. One of the reasons why the rate has dropped, unfortunately, is not due to the creation of new jobs, but rather due to the fact that many people left the city to try and find employment elsewhere. Express Employment, which was itself born out of an economic recession, aims to turn this tide around through the Foundation of Hope.
The work completed by Express Employment Professionals - Reno, NV have been very positively received by the people in the area. "Great team," says Michele S. "The staff there truly cares about the people whom they work with and the community. I would recommend Express Employment anywhere you go when looking for staffing specialists."
Michele's sentiments described exactly what the company stands for: building the community. As part of their Foundation of Hope initiative, they will be hosting several events throughout 2016. They also intend to sponsor other community initiatives and recommend people and foundations to get in touch if they know of a project or event that is particularly worthy of their support.
