CINCINNATI -- April 23, 2013
Convergys Corporation (NYSE: CVG), the global provider of customer management,
today announced that last year it hired 2,655 U.S. military veterans and
military spouses as part of its participation in last year’s 10,000 Jobs
Sponsored by Milicruit, the Military Officers Association of America and the
Direct Employers Association, the Jobs Challenge set out to generate 10,000
new, high-quality employment opportunities for veterans and military spouses.
The program was successful, with a total of 10,059 veterans and military
spouses starting new jobs, Milicruit said. More than twenty-six percent of the
individuals hired via the program were hired by Convergys.
Convergys President and CEO Andrea Ayers said, “Convergys is a company built
on the strength of our people. We are proud of our current and former service
members, as well as the many military families who work with us today.” She
continued, “We were thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Milicruit
last year and honored that more than 2,500 veterans and military spouses chose
to join Convergys. Our company is enhanced by their exceptional work ethic and
commitment to providing our clients and their customers with exemplary
“As part of the 10,000 Jobs Challenge we asked companies to step up and make a
difference for veterans and military spouses and that’s exactly what Convergys
did,” said Milicruit founder Kevin O’Brien. “Convergys delivered for the jobs
challenge and we know veterans and military spouses will deliver for them.”
Convergys offers site based and work-at-home employment opportunities, both of
which can be a great fit for veterans, active military personnel who are
making the transition from service to civilian life, and military spouses who
need a portable career option that can transfer from base to base.
Convergys continues to focus on hiring veterans and military spouses through
participation in monthly virtual career fairs with Veteran Recruiting Services
and The Military Spouse Employment Partnership– two organizations which pair
national employers with qualified, military-affiliated job seekers.
