July 25th is National Hire a Veteran Day, which encourages employers to hire servicemembers transitioning to civilian life. With approximately 270,000 military personnel leaving active duty a year, employers can rely on this experienced, diverse pool of talent to lead their workforce into the new world of work.
At the Adecco Group we celebrate veterans every day—not only for their commitment to our country, but for their work ethic, teamwork and drive. Veterans are resourceful, reliable, and highly capable employees. They know their jobs require much more than what’s written on any job description.
Through the Adecco Group Military Alliance Program, we partner with military installations and military affiliate groups to recruit and hire veterans, military spouses, transitioning servicemen and women, and those injured during military service. We offer them resume assistance, interview preparation, online skills training, and a connection to our vast network of clients.
We’re proud to be recognized as a Military Friendly Employer with a 19-year commitment to hiring military families. We appreciate the unique values and benefits veterans bring to the workplace, and we get to honor their past service by investing in their future careers.
If there’s a veteran in your life preparing to leave the military or you’re a veteran looking for your next career, let us help you. Contact us today at adeccomilitaryalliance @adeccona.com.
Our message to employers: Whether you’re just starting to build a military recruitment program or continuing to grow an existing one, we salute your efforts to hire veterans and we stand with you.
