Making A Difference For Our Heroes
Veteran hiring efforts are core to our mission at PeopleScout. Having placed more U.S. Military veterans in full-time employment than any other recruitment firm in the world, PeopleScout serves as a prime example of veteran advocacy.
PeopleScout has created a unique system called the Veteran Talent Exchange (VTE) whereby veterans seeking employment will experience broader opportunities to be placed into an ideal full time position. The VTE serves over 5,000 veteran candidates and connects them to its many respected partners. G.I. Jobs magazine has recognized PeopleScout as a 2015 Military Friendly® Employer, and PeopleScout is proud to have facilitated the largest ever RPO engagement focused on veterans through a partnership with Walmart. Additionally, PeopleScout has demonstrated its commitment through its collaboration with the US Chamber of Commerce and the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve. PeopleScout is a longtime proponent of military employment and has helped numerous clients establish formal veteran hiring programs.
