Schwab recognizes that unemployment among Veterans is a national issue; whether it is current service members transitioning from Active Duty, other Veterans, or members of the Guard and Reserve who carry a greater burden now than perhaps at any time in the nation’s history. In light of this, there is perhaps no area where Schwab has placed more emphasis in recent years than Veteran employment.
Charles Schwab has joined a number of leading U.S. companies in the 100,000 Jobs Mission with a goal of hiring 100,000 transitional service members and military veterans by 2020. Our nation’s military and veterans represent the best this country has to offer. We owe our nation’s veterans more than our gratitude...we owe them the opportunity to lead successful lives following their service.
Charles Schwab actively lists its career opportunities on H2H, an Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD)–owned and operated program, funded through the Yellow Ribbon Reintegration program. It provides a link between civilian organizations looking to hire veterans and Job-seeking reserve component Service members.
Charles Schwab is pleased to have signed a statement of support with the ESGR, who has served our country for more than 40 years fostering a culture where all employers support and value the employment and military service of members of the National Guard and Reserve in the United States. As an employer, Schwab has previously been recognized with the Above and Beyond Award, and has been a Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award semi-finalist in both 2011 and 2013.
Charles Schwab is proud to have active commitments with Joining Forces, a national initiative to engage all sectors of society to give our service members and their families the opportunities and support they have earned. In particular, with the input of military families, Joining Forces identified three priority areas for national initiatives: employment, education, and wellness.
