A Powerful Partnership

Press Release from Workforce Opportunity Services

Workforce Opportunity Services (WOS)—the leading non-profit organization connecting individuals from underserved populations with transformative career opportunities—announces its partnership with PeopleProductive, an innovative corporation with a culture solution that makes a difference.
