Levi's & Goodwill pilot Retail Job Shadow Program

Apr '08
Employees at the Levi's Store in San Francisco's Union Square will host 10 Goodwill store managers on May 1 to give them a first-hand look at traditional retail operations. The Goodwill managers run a six-month job training program for roughly 30 Goodwill clients. The pilot job shadow program aims to help them learn Levi's best practices, which they in turn can share with their trainees.

"Hundreds of thousands of people across America want to work but need Goodwill's help to find and keep a job," says Jim Gibbons, President and CEO of Goodwill Industries International. "The job shadow day at Levi's Store offers a window into the operations of a very successful retail institution, which will help our trainers build the foundation for our clients' success."

The job shadow day is part of Levi's annual "501 Day" volunteer efforts. During the day, the Goodwill managers will learn about Levi's 150-year history and the company's values and vision. They will rotate through positions in the store, including greeter, floor sales person and stocker.

"Social responsibility and supporting local communities are corporate values that have been woven deeply into the fabric of Levi Strauss & Co. since the company was founded more than 150 years ago," says Mark Breitbard, President of Levi Brand Retail. "Partnering with Goodwill Industries to help their clients gain knowledge and confidence as they launch their careers is a compelling way to engage our employees in this tradition."
