Armata said that the hiring initiative will not focus on any specific positions or expertise, but will be "across the board" in terms of the job skills being sought.
The "Salute" program is just the latest initiative for the Connecticut-based business with a long record of demonstrated social responsibility. WMG has been recognized for a variety of environmental and conservation friendly policies and programs, including the recent expansion of its 250,000 square foot deep-green corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility.
During the recession of 2008, WMG was able to avoid layoffs of up to 20 percent of its workforce by re-purposing employees into construction and other projects, an effort detailed in the best-selling business book "Conscious Capitalism" by John Mackey.
"We pride ourselves in doing things right in business," Armata said. "And that includes showing our support of those who have served on the front lines to make sure that we are all able to continue pursuing the American Dream. Now it is their turn to pursue that dream."
As part of the program's launch, WMG is honoring its veteran employees this Veterans Day with a special luncheon, hosted by Armata and other executives.
