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
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 is 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.
VETERAN TALENT EXCHANGE (VTE)
On Veterans Day 2013, PeopleScout launched its Veteran Talent Exchange program to connect veterans with employment opportunities at a variety of employer partners. This program broadens opportunities for veteran candidates who are actively seeking employment. The VTE serves over 5,000 veteran candidates and connects them to its many respected partners.
In 2013, PeopleScout began its partnership with Walmart to help them achieve their goal to offer a job to every veteran honorably discharged from the military since Memorial Day 2013. This goal represents the largest ever RPO engagement focused on veterans.
PeopleScout partners with PsychArmor as part of its ongoing to commitment to training and education regarding veteran hiring issues. PeopleScout uses PsychArmor training materials internally and with clients to build effective veteran hiring programs that are sensitive to the needs of veteran candidates.
