Because we recognize and value the incredible sacrifices made by the members of our military, we’re proud to honor their service with a variety of ongoing programs and recruiting efforts focused on helping veterans return to a successful and meaningful civilian life. Office Depot OfficeMax is a member of the Veteran Jobs Mission, a coalition of companies committed to hiring 100,000 veterans by 2020. Having already dramatically exceeded that goal, the Veteran Jobs Mission has now increased its commitment to hire a total of 1,000,000 veterans.
In addition, we have a standing alliance with the U.S. Army Partnership for Youth Success Program, which connects out-going Army soldiers with Office Depot OfficeMax and other companies to interview for employment positions following military service.
There are many opportunities within our $11 billion, multi-channel corporation for veterans to utilize their skills and experience – from eCommerce and IT to supply chain logistics and delivery.
