ISS Partners with Genesys Works to Provide Student Internships

Facilities manager ISS North America has entered into a partnership with Genesys Works, a national workforce development program that connects students from underserved communities to paid internships. In addition, ISS Group chief commercial officer and Americas region CEO Dan Ryan has joined Genesys Works’ board of directors.

The Genesys Works program empowers high school students through skills training, meaningful work experiences and impactful relationships. The organization’s goal – to expand access to career pathways for youth from underserved communities while simultaneously building a more equitable, diverse and inclusive workforce – is a natural fit with the ISS diversity and inclusion vision. The program will help ISS recruit trained interns for nine- to 12-month assignments in North America business units and support functions.

“I am thrilled to join the board of Genesys Works,” says Ryan. “The areas they currently serve, such as the San Francisco Bay Area, Washington, D.C., Houston, Chicago, Minneapolis–St. Paul and New York City, are important markets for ISS so we are excited to add Genesys Works interns to our talent pipeline. We welcome the opportunity to develop future leaders and bring new energy to fulfilling our purpose of connecting people and places to make the world work better.”
