Richardson, Texas–based Service King Collision Repair Centers recently announced a milestone in its Mission 2 Hire initiative with the recent addition and hiring of its 500th U.S. Armed Forces veteran. The company had set a short-term goal in May 2015 of hiring 500 U.S. Armed Forces veterans and family members within five years.
Through the Mission 2 Hire campaign, Service King has partnered with the U.S. Department of Labor, Vetted Heroes and the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) as a joint-partnership between leading U.S. businesses that actively connect employers to various programs to support hiring veterans and military spouses across the country.
“Hiring 500 Veterans in less than five years is an important milestone, but this is just the beginning for us. Our Mission 2 Hire will continue to focus on expanding our team with veterans and their families. Our ability to do so will continue to be a measure for our future success,” says chief human resources officer Sean Huurman. “Hiring those who have served perfectly aligns with our culture and family values. We will continue to strengthen our own team with our Veterans and their families.”
