TUKWILA, Wash., Jan. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Representatives of the U.S. Army Recruiting Command and Genoa, a QoL Healthcare Company (Genoa) signed an agreement to provide priority-hiring status to qualified Soldiers participating in the Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program.
Michael Walters, SVP Human Resources signed the agreement with John Figueroa, CEO during a ceremony at the Seattle Army Recruiting Headquarters in Washington.
"Genoa is excited to partner with the Army PaYS program as a way to recruit servicemen and women to work for Genoa. As an Army Veteran myself, I know that the Army produces high quality, dedicated and professional individuals who will exemplify Genoa's commitment to high ethical values and providing compassionate care. I am proud to collaborate with the Army on this important initiative." John Figueroa, CEO, Genoa, a QoL Healthcare Company.
PaYS is a strategic partnership program between the Army and a cross section of U.S. corporations and public sector agencies. PaYS was developed to help the Army attract, train and deploy talented young people who want to serve their country, but also want to help secure their future success once their Army service is complete.
Under terms of the agreement between United States Army Recruiting Command and Genoa, enlistees interested in gaining specific job training and qualifications will receive that training while in the U.S. Army. As part of the enlistment process, recruits sign a statement of intent to work for Genoa upon completion of their term of service or completion of their military training. As they near the end of their enlistments, the Soldiers will have the opportunity to interview with Genoa for a specific job at a specific location.
"Genoa is fortunate to be a high growth organization. We hired over 900 new team members in 2016 in positions ranging from Pharmacists, Technicians, Drivers and Administrative roles. We are excited to partner with the Army PaYS program to develop relationships with the excellent men and women of our military to help them transition to the private sector after their service to our country is complete." Michael Walters, SVP of Human Resources, Genoa, a QOL Healthcare Company.
Genoa jobs are available in the Army's PaYS database. For more information, interested applicants may visit their local recruiter or log on to www.armypays.com.
The Army has more than 600 partner corporations and public sector agencies across the nation, including Amazon, Washington State Patrol, and Pierce County Sheriff Department.
Genoa is the most experienced pharmacy provider specializing in serving the behavioral health community. Genoa is improving consumer care and saving centers time and money throughout the country, making a positive impact in the centers they work with and in the lives of the consumers they serve. Genoa offers a unique on-site pharmacy setting based on the needs of the center they are located in and strives to be the provider of choice to both their center partners and their consumers.
Consumers benefit from the interaction they have with the pharmacist; the organization eliminates inefficiencies by directing pharmacy functions back into the pharmacy and has more control over how medications are handled.
Although Genoa is a nationwide company, they have retained the feel of the hometown pharmacy and the services that go along with it. Being on-site allows their pharmacists and technicians to work closely with prescribers, nurses, and caseworkers, to provide the best possible care for each individual consumer. While they specialize in behavioral health, they have the capacity to fill all medications. They are able to bill Medicaid and Medicare, as well as private insurances. In addition, Genoa also offers several packaging options that can be tailored to fit the needs of the consumers, including specially designed adherence packaging.
