Thursday, January 30, 2014

As a member of the 100,000 Jobs Mission coalition that was launched in March 2011, Securitas Security Services USA is proud to announce that it has added 6,706 veterans to its employee base in the year 2013.

This is also an important milestone for the 100,000 Jobs Mission since it has surpassed its original goal by collectively hiring 117,439 veterans and has now pledged to hire 200,000 veterans by 2020.

"For Securitas Security Services USA, this initiative is important since we provide security services to all types of businesses and organizations across America. We value the veterans' experience in many areas, specifically in their dedication to a mission, leadership abilities and strong commitment to service," commented Rocco L. DeFelice, Executive Vice President.

Securitas USA partners with veterans' employment advocacy groups across the country, uses employment websites to recruit veterans, attends job fairs specifically targeted to veterans and encourages employee referrals. In November, 2013 Securitas USA earned the Military Friendly Employer designation from G.I. Jobs magazine that recognizes companies with strong military recruitment programs and meaningful job opportunities for service members.
