The importance of this number is embedded in the company’s short-term goal to hire 500 U.S. Armed Forces veterans and family members within five years.
Launched in May 2015, the Mission 2 Hire pledge provides career opportunities to men and women who have courageously served the nation. Exceeding the organization’s original goal of hiring 500 veterans in five years, Service King reached the 500 number in just three and a half years. The initiative aligns with Service King’s core values and encourages our nation’s veterans to join the Service King family as the organization proudly supports their transition back into civilian life. It is an essential element to the culture of the company and provides a multitude of career opportunities for the country’s heroes and their families.
Through the Mission 2 Hire campaign, Service King has partnered with the U.S. Department of Labor, Vetted Heroes and the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) as a joint partnership between leading U.S. businesses that actively connect employers to various programs to support hiring veterans and military spouses across the country. These partnerships build upon the Mission 2 Hire initiative and continue to bring talent across varying levels of the Service King organization.
“Hiring 500 veterans in less than five years is an important milestone, but this is just the beginning for us. Our Mission 2 Hire will continue to focus on expanding our team with veterans and their families. Our ability to do so will continue to be a measure for our future success,” said Chief Human Resources Officer Sean Huurman. “Hiring those who have served perfectly aligns with our culture and family values. We will continue to strengthen our own team with our veterans and their families.”
