Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) February 2, 2008
In 2008, Clovis' higher purpose, "to touch 1,000 lives," has been placed above all other goals and initiatives, said managing partner Greg Diamond. "The lives of the individuals we place into jobs are greatly improved," said Diamond at the company's annual kick-off meeting, "and their personal goals, as well as the goals of their loved ones, become more attainable as a result."
One major way Clovis is reaching out to the community this year is through a strategic partnership that will help place military spouses back into the workforce. As levels of unemployment for spouses of actively deployed and injured military personnel are at an all time high, Clovis has stepped in to help. Contributions will include providing professional advice on resume writing and career direction, tips on office attire and practice scenarios to help candidates improve upon their interview techniques.
Clovis Cares, a 100% employee volunteer group, has been created, and charity events and drives are already underway. Clothing and household items have been collected for the homeless in recent months, and associates are continually coming up with new ways to give back.
As a result of these efforts, Clovis is pleased to join the highly esteemed group of organizations that hold the "My Business Cares" Seal. Greater DC Cares states on their website that the Seal "acknowledges socially responsible businesses in the Washington region and the impact they have in making our communities great places to live and work!"
With all of the activity in the first month of the 2008, Clovis is sure to surpass its goal of "1,000 lives" touched this year.
Founded in early 2000, Clovis (http://www.clovisgroup.com) looked at the way recruiters and staffing firms operated and declared that they would do it better. Instead of making their business only about how to best recruit, they decided to focus on the two most important groups in the process, clients and candidates. Years later, Clovis continues to recruit "A-level" talent for some of the best companies in the world.
