A History of Giving Back
For over five decades, Godshall Recruiting has been active in the Greenville, South Carolina community and in the surrounding region.
Our commitment to community service began with our founders, Wayne and Jessie Godshall who raised their family and built their business in Greenville and believed passionately in giving back to the community.
Their daughter, Julie Godshall Brown, now runs the business and carries on that legacy. All of us that work at Godshall are very grateful that we not only have the opportunity to assist people every day in finding employment and help companies find the right talent but that we also are encouraged to help others outside of our business.
Company-wide Support for the Community
As a company, we have supported the United Way for 15 years including their annual campaign, the “Be a Book Bunny” campaign and the “Schools Tools” campaign. Additionally, Godshall sponsors a family at Christmas and has participated in The Battle of the Bells.
On an almost weekly basis, we assist area universities, technical schools and high schools with career related presentations and mock interviews for students.
Godshall has also supported the Better Business Bureau for years through almost 20 years of board service, and we are committed to their principals.
Altogether, we spend at least 800 business hours per year giving back to the community.
