At The Lee Group, we embrace the idea that we are purpose driven to change people’s lives. While our recruiters and staffing consultants do this every day as part of their jobs, we also aim to be ambassadors in the communities we serve.

In recognition of The Lee Group’s 50th anniversary, we’re sharing 50 (and then some) random acts of kindness that we encourage all of our team members, partners, friends and neighbors to consider to make the community around us a better place to live.

Some only take a moment. Others require a larger time investment. All can positively impact somebody else’s day.
