We are particularly proud of our involvement with a charity called Dress for Success.
Dress for Success provides disadvantaged women with professional attire and career development tools to help women thrive in work and in their life. Since 1997, Dress for Success has assisted over 700,000 women around the world.
Peoplebank has assisted dress for success since 2013 by:
- Face-to-face career and job guidance to Dress for Success participants, onsite at Marrickville
- Clothes and accessories drive
- Awareness sessions for our employees
Here is a sample of the positive comments we have received from some of the ladies that have been involved in the mock interviews:
“I felt so good after having the chance to practise an interview, and it was so uplifting.”
“I thought I’d forgotten how to do this, but it all came back, I can’t believe how good that was.”
Workplace Giving Program
Peoplebank has initiated a workplace giving program providing staff with the opportunity to make regular and one-off donations, from their pre-tax salary, to the charity of their choice. This means staff don’t have to retain donation receipts or wait until tax time to claim the deductions.
The program was initiated to help boost the meaning of work. Through the program, we are helping staff share a sense that by working at Peoplebank, they are actively helping to make the world a better place.
A word from one of the charities that has benefited from our workplace giving program
“We are extremely grateful for your support and generosity. It will make such a difference to Pete's daily living and will be used towards the purchase of a Standing Frame for exercise and muscle toning which cannot be done from his wheelchair” - Silver Linings Foundation.
