Orion pledges its support to Joining Forces, the White House initiative aimed to improve career opportunities to Veterans and their families.
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
Joining Forces is a national initiative to involve all sectors of society to provide improved opportunities to Veterans and their families in the areas of Employment, Education, and Wellness. Through this initiative, President Obama has issued a challenge to the private sector to hire or train 100,000 unemployed Veterans and their spouses.
Orion's commitment to Joining Forces:
- Orion will expand its Career Assistance Services to reach the Veteran Categories most affected by unemployment, as well as Military Spouses.
- Orion and Joining Forces will co- host Military Hiring Events at military installations around the country to match transitioning Service Members with companies seeking to hire Military talent.
- Orion will provide consultative training programs to educate companies on creating and implementing a Military Recruiting Strategy, increasing their ability to hire and retain Veterans.
Orion is proud to have assisted several Joining Forces companies achieve their Military Hiring goals in 2011, and of our direct partnership and involvement since 2012.
