Joining Forces Celebrates Five Years of Helping Veterans

On December 12, 2011, Orion International proudly announced its participation in Joining Forces, the White House initiative led by President and Mrs. Obama, and Vice President and Dr. Biden. Five years later Joining Forces is still going strong, with the First Lady and Dr. Biden celebrating the anniversary by announcing the program’s latest milestones on May 5 at The White House. During the last five years more than 1.2 million veterans and spouses have been hired or trained, and more than 110,000 new hiring commitments and nearly 60,000 new training commitments.

Among the 40 companies that have committed to hiring veterans under the initiative is Siemens, an Orion Featured employer. Over the last 20 years, Orion has placed nearly 1500 veterans into rewarding careers at Siemens. Today, the Orion-Siemens program continues to grow and expand as we help to support their pledge to hire 200-500 veterans or military spouses over the next five years.

As part of our ongoing commitment to Joining Forces, Orion will continue to provide consultative training programs to educate companies on creating and implementing a Military Recruiting Strategy, increasing their ability to hire and retain Veterans. We are also facilitating the direct participation of our client companies wishing to pledge their support to the initiative.
