FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., June 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- SFN Group, Inc. today announced the launch of Bottomless Briefcase, a career blog to support working women everywhere and its latest initiative in support of workforce diversity and inclusion. SFN Group's strong commitment to promoting equal opportunity for all in the workplace has led to several innovative platforms that support the advancement of women at every stage of their career.
The Bottomless Briefcase blog celebrates modern professional women everywhere, and serves to support and encourage working women in all the multi-dimensional challenges of their lives. The company has assembled an impressive and diverse group of bloggers, ranging from high-profile authors, career and workplace experts, to working mothers. Various contributors hail from SFN Group, tapping into the experience and knowledge from sourcing, screening and employing millions of individuals in jobs for more than 65 years.
"We know without question that the depth and diversity of a company's workforce can directly impact its overall performance and success," says Roy Krause, President and CEO of SFN Group, Inc. "It is why we are so deeply committed to promoting inclusion and equality in the workplace in relevant, meaningful ways. Given that working women between the ages of 25 and 44 spend an average 350 minutes online every day, according to Nielsen research, we've launched online platforms to meet the preferences and career needs of this workforce segment.
"Our Bottomless Briefcase blog is a venue to share career strategies, tools, humor and support among working women everywhere," continued Krause. "Based on our own research, we know that many working moms are not satisfied with their career, feel it is more stressful than staying at home, and most agree that achieving work/life balance is most important to their career happiness. Bottomless Briefcase provides a place to lean on other working women, share tips and insight, and share frustrations or a laugh or two."
In addition, SFN Group recently launched Bestsellers, a multi-generational dramedy web series about five modern professional women balancing life, career and book club. Available at http://thebestsellers.tv, YouTube, Twitter, iTunes and Facebook, the web series tells stories of real-life working women and mothers as they navigate life and work. Season one has garnered over 300,000 views.
SFN Group has also been recognized for its diversity and inclusion of female leaders in the executive suite. The company is among the minority of organizations that have two or more women directors on their board of directors.
