infoUSAs Pioneering Employment Effort Has Hired More Than One Thousand Workers Since 2001 While Providing Essential Training and Support Services

OMAHA, Neb.--()--infoUSAs innovative participation in the Clinton Administrations Welfare to Work Partnership is highlighted in former President Bill Clintons new book, Giving How Each of Us Can Change the World. Since 2001, infoUSA has hired more than one thousand welfare recipients and disabled individuals through its employment programs, providing them with career opportunities that many had not had access to before.

Giving is focused on innovative efforts by companies, organizations and individuals to overcome problems and challenges in society. In the book, President Clinton discusses infoUSAs commitment to the Welfare to Work Partnership and speaks to the success this effort has made possible for the programs participants. The book describes infoUSA as a company that has made a concerted effort to hire people who were on welfare, as well as people who are disabled or who have to support themselves after getting out of unsafe domestic situations.

I am deeply honored by President Clintons recognition of infoUSAs hiring programs, said Vinod Gupta, Chairman and CEO of infoUSA. America has truly been a land of opportunity for me, an immigrant who came to this country with practically nothing and was able to build a company that today employs approximately five thousand people. I am proud of infoUSAs commitment to providing opportunities to our fellow citizens, helping them achieve financial independence and vocational success whether they are working their way off welfare or overcoming a disability. We are dedicated to continuing this program and helping Americans work toward their dreams.

Along with full-time job opportunities, infoUSA provides a range of support services that are instrumental in helping its employees succeed in the workplace, including:

  • Transportation assistance for employees without cars and coordination with lending institutions to help employees purchase their own cars
  • Coordination with government child-care resources
  • Services for employees dealing with domestic abuse
  • Flexible work hours
  • Support for higher-education
  • Training for hearing-impaired employees through a partnership with the Iowa School of the Deaf
