Pitney Bowes Establishes Hiring Website Dedicated to Military Veterans
STAMFORD, Conn. -- November 16, 2012
Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI) announced today that it has set up a special
website targeted at military veterans and their families so that they can more
easily find work at the company.
The website, located at www.pb.com/careers, allows military veterans to map
their training and skills to a roster of actual job openings listed on the
Pitney Bowes site. Simply selecting one’s military job title on the site will
call up every Pitney Bowes job opening with a skills requirement similar to
that of the selected military title, according to the company.
The new website supports Pitney Bowes’s commitment to the 100,000 Jobs
Mission, a joint effort of more than seventy companies to provide meaningful
career opportunities to the huge number of veterans who are returning from
deployment or from lengthy military service. The 100,000 Jobs Mission
estimates that more than 28,000 veterans have already been hired by member
companies so far, including nearly 200 at Pitney Bowes.
Johnna Torsone, executive vice president and chief human resources officer at
Pitney Bowes said: "Our company is proud to support veteran employment efforts
and, whenever we have the opportunity, to increase the number of our employees
who are veterans, military spouses or active duty servicemen and women
transitioning to civilian life. It is not just our way of saying thank you; it
is a recognition that these men and women bring leadership, skills, training
and teamwork that can directly benefit our company."
