Military personnel know about hard work and dedication. They understand the importance of leadership and accountability. And at UPS, we value those qualities--that's why we hire an average of 5,000 United States veterans each year.
We work closely with a number of veteran, disability, and Wounded Warrior organizations to promote career opportunities with UPS, including:
Our signed Statement of Support for the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR)--along with our two-time recognition as the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award--highlight our commitment to the ESGR mission and our work to help servicemen and women gain and maintain employment.
We also assist and partner with the U.S. military in other ways, providing practical experience and making business ownership easier.
A commitment to our communities is a priority at UPS, and we dedicate time and money to support those efforts.
UPS is the first company to win full FAA Certification for a drone airline.
Eight percent of our workforce--more than 25,000 men and women--are U.S. veterans, and approximately 2,000 employees are on military leave on any given day.
As part of First Lady Michelle Obama's Joining Forces initiative, we've pledged to hire another 25,000 veterans by 2018.
We promote job opportunities on more than 12 veteran-related sites as well as hosting a veterans section on upsjobs.com.
