'Kareforce' at Work

Recently, one of our valued Finance and Accounting consultants on assignment with Charles Schwab tragically lost her home to the lightning storms that passed through Central Florida. Liliana Rodriguez, a working mother of two, was left stranded and homeless as their house burned to the ground. This devastating disaster forced her family to move into a family member's spare bedroom until they figure out what to do next.

When we brought this to the attention of Ray Morganti, VP of Sales Operations at Kforce, he immediately went to the board of Fezzywig (Kforce's Charity Foundation). The Fezzywig board promptly voted YES in favor of assisting Liliana and her family. Because of this, we were able to surprise Liliana at work and give her a helping hand. Liliana and her family were presented with an $800 gift certificate to Wal-Mart, and a trip to Tampa to visit a special warehouse where she can get whatever she needs to start over again (furniture, appliances, and the like).

Tears of joy flowed all over the room as Liliana's co-workers and managers looked on. What an emotional moment!

This is just one of the stories we like to share with our partners and friends about how we work hard to really care for our consultants everyday.
