The AlliedBarton Challenge is just one component of the company’s commitment to supporting and hiring veterans, reservists, their families and caregivers, through their Hire Our HeroesSM program.

“We have hired more than 3,000 veterans in the first seven months of 2013,” said Jerold Ramos Director, Strategic Recruiting/Military Liaison, AlliedBarton, who was honored by the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve with a Certificate of Excellence for his work with the organization. “I’m delighted to relay that approximately 19% of our new hires so far this year are military veterans.”
Ramos was recently appointed to lead the Military Spouse Program Work Group for JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s 100,000 Jobs Mission. Launched in 2011, the 100,000 Jobs Mission, www.100000JobsMission.com, is a coalition of 109 companies committed to hiring at least 100,000 U.S. military veterans by 2020. The coalition's companies have collectively hired 77,612 veterans through the second quarter of 2013.

“I am honored to lead the 100,000 Jobs Mission Military Spouse Program Work Group to help military spouses find employment,” said Ramos. “Hiring veterans, their families, and caregivers is simply the right thing to do. Military families have worked hard to keep the home and hearth intact while the veteran is at service. By employing not just military veterans, but their families as well, we thank them for their service.”
