Staffing company donates $480 to Food Pantry of Waukesha County

Express Employment Professionals in Brookfield, Wis. has donated $480 to the FOOD Pantry of Waukesha County.

Express Employment Professionals offers a full range of employment solutions including evaluation hire, temporary staffing, professional search and human resources. With over 550 offices in four countries, Express is committed to the vision of helping as many people as possible find good jobs by helping as many clients as possible find good people.
