Since joining the 100,000 Jobs Mission coalition in 2012, Enterprise Holdings has added more than 4,000 military veterans to its staff. In 2014 alone, Enterprise has hired 1,000 military veterans, says the company.
The 100,000 Jobs Mission brings together companies committed to hiring U.S. military veterans and military spouses. The organization consists of 165 companies, including Enterprise, and has hired more than 161,000 U.S. military veterans since its launch in 2011.
Today, Enterprise’s support of the military focuses on recruitment and hiring, local operations and community relations, says the company. It has updated its careers and recruitment website to provide information about employment opportunities for transitioning military personnel, veterans, members of the National Guard and Reserve and military families.
Additionally, Enterprise created an online internal resource group for employees with military experience, where they are able to share experiences and network across the company.
“At Enterprise, we are always looking for smart, talented, ambitious individuals to join our ranks,” said Pam Webster, Enterprise Holdings’ assistant vice president of talent acquisition. “Military veterans have had a lot of success within our company, and we will continue to recruit and hire even more former service members in the years ahead.”
