Wardrobe for Opportunity


By Connie White, Senior Recruiter

Dressing for Success is very important in the workplace

Recently one of our Employees needed some help with Business attire for one of our Clients.  I reached out to get information and contacted Mahogany at WFO (Wardrobe for Opportunity) to see if she could help in anyway.  The response from Mahogany was so quick and professional that when I spoke with the employee she was ready to go meet her right away.  This employee had been through some struggles in her life and I felt that by helping her out with this immediate need it would also really help her long term .

We always want our Clients to have the best impression of Community Staffing and who we represent. We also want our employees to be confident and comfortable with their own presentation. In this case, because our client was so impressed with the effort that our employee made, they agreed to allow her a half day off work to go and be fitted by one of WFO’s many volunteers to make sure she is a Dress for Success employee!


Some pointers for review:

The way you present yourself has a big factor on your success and prosperity.
