Company hosts ‘Pay it Forward’ hiring drive

The Express Employment Professionals office in Henrico is hosting a "Pay it Forward" hiring drive, with the goal of putting 100 unemployed people to work this holiday season. Through the drive, the company aims to provide at least 100 job-seekers with a minimum of one week's of pay to help them during the holidays.

Express associates are screened and evaluated before being placed in short- and long-term assignments in a variety of administrative, professional and commercial positions.

“Pay it Forward to us means working with local businesses to help find jobs for unemployed workers in our community, so they can earn a paycheck and help support their families this season,” said Lorraine Alexander. “For each participating company that hires an Express employee for at least 1 week, a donation of $10 will be made in their name to the Central Virginia Food Bank. A single $10 donation will provide about 40 meals to those in need.”

Companies and individuals interested in participating in the Pay it Forward Hiring Drive should call Express Employment Professionals at 261-4170. The company serves Henrico, Hanover, Richmond and the Tri-Cities areas with temporary help and direct-hire employees in a variety of fields, including administrative, accounting, general labor, warehouse and manufacturing.
