Enterprise Holdings has hired more than 6,000 military veterans and reservists since joining the ranks of the 100,000 Jobs Mission coalition in 2012.
Founded in 2011 by 11 companies, the 100,000 Jobs Mission coalition has helped place more than 240,000 veterans in careers. It brings together private companies that recognize the value military veterans bring to the workplace and are committed to helping former service members make the transition from military to civilian careers, according to the coalition.
Enterprise Holdings is one of more than 190 companies associated with the 100,000 Jobs Mission.
“Much like the military, Enterprise rewards and recognizes individuals for their performance and commitment to teamwork,” said Pam Webster, assistant vice president of talent acquisition at Enterprise Holdings. “The dedication, work ethic and team spirit our former service members bring to the workplace make them natural leaders at Enterprise, and we look forward to hiring even more veterans as a member of the 100,000 Jobs Mission coalition.”
Enterprise Holdings’ commitment to the military goes back nearly six decades. The company is named after the USS Enterprise, one of the aircraft carriers Jack Taylor (Enterprise’s founder) served on as a U.S. Navy pilot during World War II.
Today, veterans and reservists comprise nearly 10% percent of Enterprise Holdings’ total U.S. work force, according to the company.
