The National Chamber Foundation and Capital One have teamed up to develop Hiring 500,000 Heroes, a multi-year initiative to work with businesses to make commitments to hire 500,000 veterans and military spouses by the end of 2014. As the program’s website attests, “These Americans have years of the best training and possess extraordinary skills. They show up early, leave late, know how to work in teams, how to manage people and materials, and they can adapt to ever-changing environments under demanding pressures.” One of the program’s most successful initiatives is participation in local job fairs. To date, Hiring Our Heroes has hosted more than 560 hiring fairs. On October 2, Roush will be participating in one of the group’s hiring fairs in Ann Arbor, and is actively seeking veterans trained in engineering, machining, mold making, fabrication, composites, and mechanic services. Roush will also be participating in a Veterans’ Job Fair in Southfield on October 8. Additional information and available positions are listed at http://www.roush.com/careers.aspx. “We view this as a win-win opportunity,” said Roush Vice President Steve Sciatto. “We are able to help veterans and transitioning service members find meaningful employment, while Roush benefits from access to an extremely well-trained work force that has exhibited the highest standards of leadership and integrity. The agreement to hire veterans connects to our corporate culture, and we are confident that military veterans will be an asset to any company or organization.” Hiring Our Heroes was launched in March 2011. Working with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s vast network of state and local chambers and other strategic partners from the public, private, and non-profit sectors, the program’s goal is to create a movement across America in hundreds of communities where veterans and military families return every day. Hiring Our Heroes has hosted more than 560 hiring fairs in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. Through March 31, 2013, 20,200 veterans and military spouses had obtained jobs. Online tools have been also been integrated into the employment workshops that are taking place at hundreds of fairs to enhance the Hiring Our Heroes experience.
