About the program

Carex Gives Back

A great career match is a win for both our partners and our candidates—and a win for us, too! In 2022, we established the Carex Gives Back program as a way to extend these wins to the communities in which we all work and live.

At the beginning of the year, we select 4 non-profit organizations making a significant impact in our community. Then, we set aside $100 of our profit for every placement we make to be donated. It’s our partners’ support that makes this possible—and we’re just getting started!
