Quarterly Jobs Report: 100,000 Jobs Mission Hires 92,869 Veterans through Third Quarter 2013

The FINANCIAL -- New York - The 100,000 Jobs Mission announced that its members have collectively hired 92,869 U.S. military veterans through the third quarter of 2013.



This private sector initiative was launched in early 2011 by JPMorgan Chase and ten other companies with the goal to collectively hire at least 100,000 veterans by the year 2020. Since then, the coalition has grown to 121 companies that represent almost every sector of the U.S. economy, according to JPMorgan Chase & Co.

"Our coalition has made great progress," said Maureen Casey, Director of Military and Veterans Affairs at JPMorgan Chase. "But the 100,000 Jobs Mission is much more than a number. We are committed to positioning veterans for long-term success and sharing best practices," Casey added.

And the companies did just that at their quarterly meeting last week hosted by Lockheed Martin in Arlington, Va. The meeting focused on bridging the knowledge gap between civilian and military cultures and breaking down barriers to employment. Company representatives also divided into working groups that focused on several important topics including talent sharing among 100,000 Jobs Mission members through its Veteran Talent Exchange, hiring military spouses and launching business resource groups.

"By working together and sharing best practices, the 100,000 Jobs Mission companies are deepening the level of understanding of the challenges veterans face when they enter the civilian workforce. This has been critical in helping veterans understand their own skills and businesses understand the tremendous value military-experienced employees bring to their companies," added Casey.
