PeopleScout Recognized as Top 10 Military Friendly® Employer
Company’s Veterans Initiatives Honored for being Better for Veterans
Chicago, IL – Dec. 9, 2016– PeopleScout, a global provider of Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) services, announced today that it is a top ten Military Friendly® Employer Award recipient. This is the third consecutive year that PeopleScout has been recognized for its commitment to veteran employment by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse magazines.
PeopleScout has placed more U.S. military veterans in full-time employment than any other recruitment firm in the world. The company’s unique Veteran Talent Exchange (VTE) connects thousands of veteran job seekers with job opportunities with PeopleScout clients and partners.
“All of our Military Friendly® award recipients set the standard for excellence,” said Daniel Nichols, Chief Product Officer of Victory Media and head of Military Friendly® development. “They offer exceptional examples of what it means not just to build a program that meets federal requirements, but one that serves the military and veteran community from classrooms to careers.”
“Although we can never fully repay the debt we owe to veterans and their families for the sacrifices they have made for us, helping our veterans find gainful employment can make a huge difference in their lives,” said PeopleScout President Taryn Owen. “Connecting people and work is what we do best, and we’re proud of being the leader in helping veterans find employment.”
PeopleScout promotes veteran hiring by helping its clients establish recruiting programs to increase veteran hires. The company’s Veteran Career Counselors connect fellow veterans with positions at client firms by helping to translate their military experience and valuable skills into qualifications for civilian careers.
