Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont was proud to unveil on Thursday our new GoodWork Staffing location in Rock Hill, S.C., located at 566 N. Anderson Road. The ceremonial ribbon cutting marked the fourth location for our award-winning nonprofit staffing division that supports Goodwill’s mission of changing lives through the power of work. Attendees included Goodwill executives and members of the York County Regional Chamber of Commerce, including Chamber President Rob Youngblood, who delivered remarks at the event. Goodwill’s mission is more than getting people a job, it’s about helping to secure family sustaining employment so that individuals can build a foundation for the future. This vision comes to life as GoodWork Staffing carefully matches clients seeking meaningful employment with careers in the fields of light industrial, administrative, clerical, customer service and management. GoodWork Staffing offers a variety of services for business clients including temporary, temp-to-hire, direct hire, outsourcing, executive recruiting, on-site management and payroll services. Proceeds from the revenue generated by GoodWork Staffing fund Goodwill’s job training and employment services free of charge for individuals in the community. “We are so proud of the current relationships we’ve built throughout this community by having a retail presence here and delighted to deepen our relationships in York County with the location of this new enterprise,” said Robin Carson, Senior Vice President of Employment Services at Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont. “With the opening of this new location in Rock Hill, GoodWork Staffing projects to place 500,000 paid hours of work in 2015.”
As the business continues to grow and expand, GoodWork Staffing recently won a recognition award from Goodwill Industries International in the category of Business Services/Contracts Excellence: Growing the Business/Total Growth, and was recently ranked by the Charlotte Business Journal as the 15th largest temporary staffing company in Charlotte. “We are excited to be able to serve the York County community and look forward to developing partnerships with local businesses and industries,” said Carol Ashby, Director of GoodWork Staffing. “Working together, we will begin alleviating the challenges faced by so many individuals in poverty as they find new opportunities for employment.” GoodWork Staffing in Rock Hill is located at 566 N.
