The partnership offers regular and Reserve soldiers job interviews and potential employment after completing their service in the Army. XPO and the Army will hold a signing ceremony for this commitment on November 15th.
"With more than 2,000 veterans and active service members on our team, XPO is a proud, military-friendly workplace," said Mario Harik, CEO of XPO. "We place exceptional value on the outstanding skill set and dedication that military-trained employees bring to our company, and we are honored to be joining forces with the PaYS program to expand our commitment to creating post-service opportunities for our nation’s soldiers.”
The PaYS program helps soldiers prepare for post-military careers, connecting them with employers who value the skills, discipline and work ethic that their military service brings to a business.
“We would like to extend a heartfelt welcome to XPO as a new PaYS partner. The US Army is a reliable recruitment source for businesses with an endless pool of qualified talent, and we’re pleased that XPO is committed to helping soldiers find employment after military service,” said Antonio Johnson, PaYS Program Manager.
