Making A Difference For Our Heroes

Our commitment to veteran hiring is personal. We understand the challenges veterans face as they transition to the civilian workforce because we employ them at every level of our company. We use that drive to help our clients achieve their veteran hiring goals. Through custom tailored recruitment solutions that leverage our suite of veteran hiring services, we help our clients hire thousands of veterans each year. At PeopleScout, we salute our veterans, and we hire them.

The full-service process starts with training and education for everyone involved in the hiring process and provides the highest levels of veteran candidate care from the first contact through a job offer.

You can learn more about what it takes to set up a veteran hiring program in our ebook “Best Practices for Hiring Veterans.”

U.S. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE CORPORATE PARTNERSHIP

TrueBlue is proud to announce its support of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Hiring Our Heroes (HOH) initiative. As a Friend of HOH, we continue to connect service members, veterans and military spouses with career opportunities available within our organization as well as our clients.

PeopleScout has long been a partner of Hiring our Heroes in its mission to help veterans, transitioning service members and military spouses find meaningful employment opportunities. Our parent company, TrueBlue, was a founding member of the national advisory circle on the Veteran Employment Advisory Council, which was created in 2011. The VEAC is committed to hiring veterans and military spouses, establishing best practices for veteran employment, reporting measures like job opportunities, interviews and placements, providing mentors to military members transitioning into the civilian workforce and working with other businesses to do the same.

TrueBlue was also on the Wounded Veteran and Caregiver Employment Advisory Council, which focuses on the employment needs of wounded veterans and veteran caregivers. The council focuses on finding flexible work schedules or remote-work opportunities to support veterans’ and caregivers’ integration back into civilian employment. Many veterans face permanent injuries, including post-traumatic stress (PTS), physical disabilities and traumatic brain injuries that make the transition to traditional employment difficult.
