Service King Eclipses Veterans Hiring Milestone
May 25, 2017—Service King announced it has officially eclipsed another milestone by surpassing 250 successful hires through its ongoing veterans initiative, Mission 2 Hire.
Mission 2 Hire is Service King’s official veterans outreach campaign actively recruiting and hiring U.S. Armed Forces veterans, military spouses and active duty personnel. The initiative continues to outpace its original goal of 500 hires in five years after launching in May 2015. Service King is currently more than six months ahead of schedule to meeting its goal and now officially beyond the halfway mark of completing its mission.
“Mission 2 Hire continues to be a remarkably rewarding experience for the entire Service King family,” said Jeff McFadden, Service King president. “Armed Forces veterans and military families have sacrificed so much to safeguard our freedoms and liberties. It’s our mission to combat the staggering unemployment rate facing veterans as they return home from combat. We’re committed to prioritizing that effort through Service King’s Mission 2 Hire.”
The initiative kicked off at a time when more than 500,000 U.S. Armed Forces veterans were facing unemployment across the U.S., according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
