Corporate Social Responsibility, Americas, Talent, Service Provider News

A partnership between Aramark and nonprofit veterans’ organization American Corporate Partners (ACP) aims to bolster recruitment of former U.S. armed forces personnel.


ACP helps returning veterans and active duty spouses with the transition to their post-military careers by providing one-on-one mentoring, networking and online career advice. 


Chairman and founder, Sidney E. Goodfriend, comments: "All of us at ACP are delighted that Aramark is joining our program.


"Thousands of men and women who have served our country are coming home and facing a tough economic climate. Our ACP program assists them to find new careers in the private sector. We sincerely thank our Aramark partners who are offering their time and guidance to assist them."


Aramark's Chief Diversity and Sustainability Officer, Ash Hanson, adds: "This Veterans Day, we honor and re-affirm our gratitude to all our veterans, active duty servicemen and women, and their families for all they have given for their country. We recognize the unique skillset and experience veterans bring to our organization, and we’re proud to partner with ACP to help these extraordinary men and women develop long-term careers with Aramark."


In addition to the collaboration with ACP, Aramark is already involved in several other year-round veteran recruitment initiatives, including a partnerships with and Direct Employers to posts all open Aramark positions, a corporate subscription to the  SeekOut sourcing platform which notifies the company of qualified veteran job candidates, and a partnership with RecruitMilitary which helps connect veterans with potential employers.


SALUTE, the company's employee resource group for military veterans and their family members, is also hosting a virtual panel discussion for veterans within the company after Aramark previously provided grants to Team Red, White and Blue and Wreaths Across America on behalf of SALUTE to allow 100 wreaths to be laid on National Wreaths Across America Day which takes place on 19 December 2020.
