GE launches veteran hiring initiative
General Electric has announced that it will hire 5,000 veterans over the next five years, partnering with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to provide training for the veterans in 50 cities.
The Chamber of Commerce will sponsor 400 jobs fairs for veterans in 2012 as part of the “Hiring our Heroes” initiative. Additionally, GE will offer extra hiring training and services at 50 of those jobs fairs. The company will also renew its Statement of Support with the Employer Support of the National Guard and Military Reserve, which renews GE’s commitment to support employee reservists when they are called to active duty. Together these efforts will help ensure veterans and reservists have the utmost support as they assimilate into the civilian work force.
GE employs more than 10,000 veterans and has about 100 U.S. employee reservists currently serving overseas and has been named as a top military recruiter by G.I. Jobs Magazine.
The veterans hiring initiative is part of an overall program announced by GE that addresses skills training and workforce preparedness, advanced manufacturing, and affordable healthcare delivery.
“American business can compete and win anywhere,” said GE chairman and CEO Jeff Immelt. “There are companies and communities all across the country that are leading the way. We know that renewing American manufacturing works; affordable health care works; high-skill training works; investing in people works; supporting customers works; accessing global markets works. We should have the confidence to act and to restore American competitiveness.”
