The Adecco Group US Foundation held their inaugural “Suit and Salute” event in Washington, DC on Military Spouse Appreciation Day in 2019. We knew magic would happen when we brought together two perfectly matched partners: Dress for Success™ and the Adecco Group Military Alliance network. This partnership empowers women veterans and military spouses.

We worked with area military installations to invite spouses to a career development workshop tailored to their unique employment needs.  Dress for Success™ stepped in and provided attendees with professional clothing to kickstart their job search, and shared tips on projecting a polished image.  Adecco Group colleagues volunteered their time and expertise to conduct mock interviews and help attendees fine-tune their resumes to suit their professional goals. It also proved a natural networking environment—some attendees even secured job offers before the event concluded.  

This initiative keeps growing.  In 2022, we have six “Suit and Salute” events on deck across the U.S. to assist women veterans and military spouses. Adecco Group and Dress for Success™ volunteers will lead various workshops to help participants with “Building Your Brand.” All participants will leave the event with a polished resume; professional attire; access to upskilling courses offered through the Adecco Group US Foundation’s Aspire Academy; and connections to a vast network of recruiters across the Adecco Group family of brands.

Our upcoming March event in Tampa, FL brings together our partners Dress for Success™ and Wounded Warrior Project™.  Together, we are stronger and will make a lasting impact on the lives of women who have selflessly served in defense of our country.
