Goodwill Industries Receives National Recognition for Outstanding Career Placement and Services

0

Goodwill Industries of the Valleys has been designated by Goodwill Industries International as a 2019 Center of Excellence for Career Navigation. The Roanoke Goodwill has shown tremendous success in addressing its local community’s need of sustaining employment opportunities for individuals with disadvantages. Over the past five years, Goodwill placed more than 8,500 individuals into employment, increased average wage of career opportunities for individuals participating in programs by almost $4, and has seen a nearly 90% employment retention rate at one year post-placement.

The Goodwill Center of Excellence Award for Career Navigation celebrates a local Goodwill organization with demonstrated success of providing career navigation and financial wellness, placing persons served and employed in careers, and collaborating with community partners and/or employers to create locally relevant career opportunities for populations who are underrepresented. Launched in 2001 with the generous support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Center of Excellence Awards recognize local Goodwill organizations with exceptional family strengthening practices. The award was recently presented at Goodwill’s annual spring conference in Ft. Worth, Texas.
