US Bank excells veteran hiring goal
US Bank has surpassed its military hiring goal for 2012, in time to mark the Veterans Day holiday. US Bank now employs more than 2,300 veterans nationwide, and continues in its efforts to recruit veterans. US Bank is firmly committed to employing and supporting veterans, active-duty service members and their families, said Richard Davis, chairman, president and chief executive officer of U.S. Bancorp, parent company of U.S. Bank. “Veterans bring valuable leadership skills to their organization, with experience and perspective that strengthens our company. We honor them and all who serve on Veterans Day and every day, for their commitment to our country and protection of our freedom.” In addition, this is the second consecutive year that U.S. Bank has been recognized by G.I. Jobs as a Top 100 Military Friendly Employer, which highlights companies for the strength of their military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service and policies toward providing exemplary benefits for employees serving in the National Guard and Reserve.
Also, U.S. Veterans Magazine listed U.S. Bank on its 2012 Best of the Best: Top 100 Companies Recruiting Veterans. The survey results are published in the November 2012 special Veterans Day edition.
