Perks of Working at Dawson

Volunteer Match

We believe that helping others goes beyond placing our candidates in great careers. That’s why Dawson associates are encouraged to get involved in the community with our Volunteer Match program. For every 20 hours spent volunteering off the clock, employees earn an extra PTO day before any paid holiday.

Career Path/Corporate Training

The Dawson Training Program is committed is providing ongoing training and employee development support to the colleagues of Dawson.  Dawson invests in training its recruiters for industry-coveted Certified Staffing Professional (CSP) or Technical Services Certified (TSC) designations by the American Staffing Association.  Dawson is committed to continuing education on best practices, software systems, processes, and employment laws. In addition, partnerships with Central Ohio Professional Education Coalition (COPEC) and United HealthCare provide monthly “Lunch and Learn” topics like networking, social media recruitment, healthy eating, and maintaining work/life balance, among others.

Dawson Wellness

To perform your best, you have to live well. That’s why we encourage employee wellness through a variety of programs:

  • Free fruit and other healthy snacks for our employees
  • A state-of-the art fitness center with a variety of workout equipment
  • Tax-free, affordable fitness classes – from professionally certified trainers – offered during the workday
  • Free guest speakers on health and wellness topics, accompanied by a free nutritious lunch

Quarterly Employee Events

Work hard, play hard. That’s our motto – and that’s why once a quarter, we shut down our office early to do the latter. Events include an annual Putt-Putt competition where employee teams decorate golf holes, and play against each other, our annual “Field Day,” and the “Dawscars” – our awards ceremony honoring our teammates, and having good-hearted fun at each others’ expense too.

Client Outings

We understand that building a great business means building great relationships with our clients and associates. Throughout the year, we host multiple client events, including:

  • Ohio State football tailgate parties
  • Blue Jackets games, concerts, and other sporting events chartered by the Dawson bus
  • Food truck roll-ins, happy hours, and other professional networking events at Dawson
  • A hospitality house on the 5th hole at the Memorial Tournament
