Employees of Robert Half International are giving the business suits off their backs to help others find jobs.
The Menlo Park, Calif.-based staffing company invited its own employees and those of nearby businesses to donate “interview appropriate” clothing and accessories to disadvantaged job-seekers through its “Dress for Success” program.
The 19,000 suits, separates, shoes, scarves and accessories the company collected last year will be distributed to thousands of job candidates who otherwise might not have been able to make good first impressions.
The company started the annual drive in 2002 and has collected 170,000 pieces of clothing.
