Out of the cubicle and onto the soccer field!

The Robert Half Midtown office recently came together to participate in one of New York City’s premier summer sporting events, the 9th Annual America SCORES Cup.  It’s the city’s largest annual corporate soccer tournament, bringing together over 600 employees from 40 top NYC companies to benefit America SCORES New York.

The SCORES Cup is an all-day event full of soccer, networking, team-building and charity. All funds raised by the event support America SCORES programs to enable New York youth from under-resourced communities lead healthy lives, become engaged students, and gain the confidence and character to make a difference in the world.

From team fees alone, America SCORES raised $200,000 for their year-round programs, which will give them a solid platform to continue to add schools in West Harlem and Washington Heights. Robert Half’s donation funded the stipends for one writing coach and one soccer coach for the entire 2015–2016 school year.

“This event was a great way for coworkers to come together,” said Greg Wiercinski, team captain and Client Service Director, Robert Half Management Resources.  “The team developed stronger relationships with each other and are already looking forward to next year!”
