Frontier Communications Joins the 100,000 Jobs Mission in Pledge to Increase Hiring of Veterans
STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Communications Corporation (NASDAQ: FTR) has joined the ranks of the 100,000
Jobs Mission, a coalition of major corporations committed to hiring
100,000 transitioning service members and military veterans by 2020.
According to Maggie Wilderotter, Chairman and CEO of Frontier, the
Mission complements the company's strong efforts to help service members
and other veterans lead successful lives after their military service.
"Being part of the coalition will raise the visibility of the many
career opportunities available at Frontier, especially in areas such as
information technology, customer service and technical operations.
Hiring veterans is not only the right thing to do, but a great thing to
do for our business. Our nation's military reservists and veterans have
the skills every workplace needs."
"Joining the 100,000 Jobs Mission builds upon Frontier's ongoing
commitment to military veterans," Mrs. Wilderotter added. "Since
Veterans Day in 2010, the company has worked with the Employer
Partnership of the Armed Forces to boost career opportunities
for members of the military reserve and veterans. Being part of the
mission will help Frontier do more. Our military men and women were
there for us; it's our turn to be here for them."
"We are delighted that Frontier has joined the mission," said Nate
Herman, Executive Director for Military and Veteran Affairs for JPMorgan
Chase, a founding member of the 100,000 Job Mission Coalition. "They
share the coalition's focus on the entire continuum of veteran
employment — recruiting, hiring, training, assimilation and retention.
Our collective aim is not only to help veterans find jobs, but also to
help them develop the skills they need for success in their first roles
and throughout their civilian careers."
