NEW YORK, Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- G.I. Jobs has named Deloitte to its 2017 list of "Military Friendly Employers," a designation that acknowledges Deloitte's commitment to hiring military-experienced job seekers and veterans and supporting them during their civilian careers.
"Deloitte strongly believes in the contributions that experienced armed forces personnel bring to the workforce, which is why we continue to not only invest in hiring and retaining military members, veterans and their spouses, but also support them through a variety of programs, pro-bono work and sponsorships," said Mark Goulart, federal government services principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP. "We are truly honored to be recognized for our efforts as a Military Friendly Employer."
Deloitte is committed to supporting transitioning veterans through its focuses on employment, physical health and recovery. As part of these efforts, Deloitte's Career Opportunity Redefinition and Exploration (CORE) Leadership Program helps transitioning armed forces members and veterans translate their skills, knowledge and experiences into a business environment to identify the next step in their careers.
