  • Support from Your Local
    Express Employment Professionals Office

    We are proud to be a fully-franchised staffing firm, meaning that your local office may be owned by your neighbor down the street

    Your local Express Employment Professionals office doesn’t consider community involvement a sales gimmick or a public relations ploy. They see it as a way to be a good neighbor, and as a way to have a positive impact on their community.

    Please contact your local Express Employment Professionals office to find out what programs they support. While budget limitations make it impossible to support every worthy cause, your local Express office is interested in learning about the work of your organization.

    Your local Express office can be found using the “Locations” tab provided at the top of the page.

    Support from Express Headquarters

    Express believes in giving back to the communities that have helped make us successful. As a company that was founded, and continues to be headquartered, in the great state of Oklahoma, giving from our corporate headquarters is concentrated on Oklahoma-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. We recognize there are many worthy causes performing important work in our community. Unfortunately, we are unable to support every good cause and have elected to make our greatest impact focused on those organizations which benefit children, education, medical research, the community and the arts.

    Considerations for giving include:

    • Is this a recognized / approved 501(c)(3) organization?
    • Does the organization benefit children, health or education?
    • Does it service and provide for the betterment of the community / state?
    • Does this organization align with the values and cultures of Express?
