Nonprofit for Women's Job Placement is Voted the Best Company to Work For

Among the 45 companies chosen in Atlanta, Georgia, Every Woman Works Inc., has been voted as one of the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in 2012.

2013-01-04
ATLANTA, GA, January 04, 2013 (Press-News.org) A company that finds jobs is ironically the best company to work for. Every Year, Atlanta highlights the best companies in the metro area, and this time, Every Woman Works is one of them.

Among the 45 companies chosen locally, Every Woman Works Inc., has been voted as one of the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in 2012. Each year, the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For competition identifies and honors organizations that display a commitment to excellence in their human resource practices and employee enrichment. Organizations are assessed based on categories such as communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition, retention and more.

One of Georgia's most effective job readiness programs, Every Woman Works is a therapeutic, supportive environment for women who are homeless, recovering from alcohol or drug dependency, in transition from the penal system, reliant upon welfare benefits, and so forth. Some of its major supporters include Kimberly Clark, GE Women's Network, SunTrust, and the Ludacris Foundation. The non-profit organization also takes donations from individuals and small businesses who want to sponsor a woman's 4 to 6-week training called Busy Empowering and Employing Students (BEES). The cost of the BEES training is about $2,000 per client, but the reward has been that 90 percent have obtained employment, some for the first time in their lives. Up to 75 percent have retained employment for a minimum of six months.

Achieving this kind of success takes great resources and a competent, dedicated staff. In fact, several former EWW students, including Frances Browning, office manager; and Vera Moore, receptionist also known as the "director of first impressions," work in the Sandy Springs office. Many of the employees have been with the eight-year-old organization for more than five years because they find the work so rewarding. "Not only am I here to be a blessing, but I also receive a tremendous amount of blessings from working here," says Wychella Williams, operations and program manager.

The program is centered on developing new skills, such as computer training and even literacy. However, the greatest strength of the training program is the spiritual component, according to most of the women who have graduated. "Many times when women come here, their esteem is low. They don't believe in themselves, so it's in the Hour of Empowerment that we are able to break down those walls and barriers that are in place because people told them that they would never be anything," says Williams.

As the co-owner of Keller Williams Realty southeast region, Kay Evans, could have spent her time focused solely on her own business. Evans, however, decided in 2011 that Every Woman Works is something she "had to become a part of." Now as board chair of the organization, she says she is willing to invest her time and resources to help the program rebuild lives. Evan loves her work with the organization and says, "It's the most inspiring environment I have been a part of."

7 Reasons Not to Raise Taxes

2013-01-04
There are a lot of debates in Washington, DC about how to get our fiscal crisis under control. Democrats propose raising taxes as a solution to this problem. However, many economists believe that raising taxes during a time of high unemployment and in a bad economy can hurt our country. According to the accounting firm Ernst & Young, Obama's tax increase on business owners would not spur any job growth but instead kill 710,000 jobs. "There is ample proof that the Democratic approach to eliminating debt by raising taxes can ruin any chance of a healthy economic ...
