Bringing our Heroes Home to Jobs
U.S. Bank is proud to have surpassed our military hiring goal for 2012 — we hired nearly 600 veterans. U.S. Bank now employs more than 2,300 veterans nationwide, and we are continuing our efforts to recruit veterans through our ambitious veteran hiring campaign, Bankers in Boots.
U.S. Bank is committed to employing and supporting veterans, active-duty service members and their families. Veterans bring valuable training, integrity and leadership skills to the organization, as well as experience and perspective that strengthens our company. In 2012, U.S. Bank was selected by the State of Minnesota to join an Employment Resource Team that travelled to Kuwait to teach job-search skills to National Guard troops.
We support the individual service member and his or her family with a full range of benefits and development programs. Our policies and procedures regarding leave, benefits and pay differential for National Guard members and reservists are some of the most inclusive in our industry, and our military leave policy exceeds state and federal standards.
U.S. Bank saluted for its efforts
Last year marked the second consecutive year that U.S. Bank was recognized by G.I. Jobs magazine as a Top 100 Military Friendly Employer. G.I. Jobs spotlights companies for the strength of their military recruiting efforts and policies to provide exemplary benefits for employees serving in the National Guard and Reserve, along with the flexibility to fulfill their commitment. U.S. Veterans Magazine listed U.S. Bank on its 2012 Best of the Best: Top 100 Companies Recruiting Veterans. And Military Times magazine named U.S. Bank as one of just 39 companies in its Best of Vets annual survey. This was our third year on this list.
Once they are on board, our veteran employees become familiar with our Proud to Serve program, a comprehensive program that focuses on two primary areas: recruiting veterans to work at U.S. Bank and making sure they receive help and resources to support their success and satisfaction at U.S. Bank — including leadership development, recognition, training and the opportunity to engage in community service.
