FREE "Outsource To Detroit" t-shirt with $10 donation to Goodwill of Greater Detroit

Support Jobs in Detroit with this Limited Edition T-shirt

GalaxE.Solutions, Inc., reinforcing its vision of Downtown Detroit as a healthcare IT hub and an alternative to work going offshore, has issued a limited edition, Robert Stanzler-created “Outsource to Detroit” t-shirt in conjunction with Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit. 
The shirts are free with a donation to Goodwill, the only organization in Southeast Michigan solely dedicated to helping Metro Detroiters overcome employment challenges and earn jobs.  The initiative and its message symbolizes Detroit’s continued rebirth.
Arriving at 1001 Woodward Avenue in Campus Martius in April 2010, GalaxE.Solutions is hiring 500 skilled IT workers in downtown Detroit
To date, more than 100 have been hired with immediate openings for 200 additional professionals – well ahead of original estimates and a sign that the “Outsource to Detroit” model is a successful and growing with companies nationwide. Chairman and CEO Tim Bryan also is speaking around the country as well as working closely with state and municipal leaders to promote the merits of Detroit for business and opportunities for employment for young professionals.
“Detroit, is an iconic city with a tremendous history of engineering and technological innovation and hard working professionals with outstanding skills,” said Bryan. “Add in existing infrastructure, geography, and other economic and political considerations and, for perhaps the first time ever, high-level health care-focused IT work can be done in the Motor City at a cost differential of offshore locations of only 5-10 percent.”
