If clothes make the man or the woman, then the elegant store on South Temple is making a lot of people feel like they can take on the world — and a new career. Starting Jan. 1, Stringham and his family — which includes brother Brandon, CFO, and dad Bart, chairman — have been giving away a suit for every one they sell. Their philanthropic effort is called “Suited for Good”.   For every suit the store sells, another one is given to someone who is struggling to find a job. The recipients get a suit, a shirt, a tie and shoes, plus a custom fitting.

Stringham told NBC’s Joe Fryer of NBC Nightly News that for a person looking for a job, wearing a nice suit is “a chance to shine and to not be worried about what people think about them. But rather (they can) be able to put their best foot forward and have confidence that who they are is good enough for what they want to do. It’s not about the suit. It’s about the man inside.”

So far this year, the store has given away 41 suits, and 20 more people have booked appointments to get their own.

Why You Need Emotional Intelligence at Work

According to a recent survey by RH, Int., nearly all human resource managers (95%) and workers (99%) say it’s important for employees to have a high emotional quotient, or EQ, because it helps them manage their own emotions and understand and react to the emotions of others, according to a survey of more than 600 H.R. managers and more than 800 employees by OfficeTeam. More than one in five employees (21%) believe EQ is more valuable in the workplace than intelligence quotient. Nearly two-thirds (65%) say the two are equally important. Most workers (92%) think they have strong emotional intelligence; fewer (74%) believe their bosses do.

The Philadelphia Dance Center had students invite their fathers to participate in classes last week, including a “Daddy-Daughter” ballet class. The center posted the heartwarming video on their Facebook page where the world can see these devoted dads attempt to gracefully pirouette through the air.

Employee of the Week

Frank H.

Frank is our Employee of the Week and we can’t thank him enough for going beyond the call of duty in working with one of our clients. It seems that a 2-day job has become much more than a short-term job with additional duties and also much longer than the original order.  We’re very happy that Frank continues on this assignment and he is happy also that there is more of a variety than at the beginning. Congrats Frank! Enjoy the gift card.
