A round of ap­plause, please, for Hil­ton Ho­tels and Re­sorts — which plans to hire 20,000 mil­i­tary vet­er­ans, their spouses, de­pen­dents and care­givers in the next three years. The global hos­pi­tal­ity giant — which op­er­ates 4,900 prop­er­ties around the globe — al­ready has made 10,000 mil­i­tary hires in the U.S. since 2013, ex­ceed­ing its ini­tial goal to reach that num­ber two years ahead of sched­ule.

“Mil­i­tary vet­er­ans and their fam­i­lies have made in­cred­i­ble sac­ri­fices for our coun­try, and we are strongly com­mit­ted to en­sur­ing they have great jobs when they re­turn home from ser­vice. We’ve al­ways felt strongly about this is­sue since our founder Con­rad Hil­ton him­self was a mil­i­tary vet­eran, and we are very proud of our vet­eran team mem­bers who have contributed so much to our com­pany,” says pres­i­dent and CEO Christo­pher J. Nas­setta.

Hil­ton’s chief hu­man re­sources of­fi­cer, Matt Schuyler, praises vets for their lead­er­ship, in­tegrity and team­work, ad­vis­ing prospec­tive em­ploy­ees that the com­pany “will do ev­ery­thing it can to sup­port you in mak­ing a smooth tran­si­tion to the civil­ian work­force.”
