Hiring Our Heroes (HOH) is a nationwide initiative to help veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses find employment opportunities. A-G is happy to be working in concert with HOH, a program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation. The goal of this extraordinary program is to create a movement across America in hundreds of communities where veterans and military families return every day.
Currently, A-G employs two military spouses who bring immeasurable value to our team as well as a fresh perspective to the work we do for our clients. Here are a few quick, impressive facts about HOH:
- Launched in March 2011 and works with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s vast network of state and local chambers and strategic partners from the public, private, and non-profit sectors.
- More than 31,000 veterans and military spouses have obtained employment opportunities through Hiring Our Heroes events across the country. Job fairs are held across the country and on military installations overseas.
- Over 2,000 companies of all sizes have committed to hire 710,000 veterans and military spouses as part of the Hiring 500,000 Heroes campaign. Of those commitments, to date, there have been more than 505,000 confirmed hires.
Being a service disabled veteran-owned small business, it’s imperative for us, as a company and as individuals, to uphold a commitment to our community. We are pleased to announce our involvement and encourage others to check out the Hiring Our Heroes initiative, too.
