The nonprofit social enterprise is awarded Best of the Best by U.S. Veterans Magazine.

Roseville, Calif. — For a third consecutive year, PRIDE Industries has been named one of the nation’s Best of the Best Top Veteran-Friendly Companies by U.S. Veterans Magazine (USVM). The distinction publicly recognizes those entities that go above and beyond in their support of our nation’s former military personnel. With an eye on veteran employment, the publication’s annual review evaluates the nation’s employers, initiatives, government agencies, and educational institutions.

“We strive to encourage companies to open up employment, business and supplier opportunities within the federal government and corporate America for veterans, transitioning service members, service-disabled veterans, spouses and veteran business owners,” said Mona Lisa Faris, President and Publisher at U.S. Veterans Magazine.

PRIDE Industries recognizes that the experience veterans gain serving our country makes them valuable employees. The company currently employs hundreds of veterans in all areas of the organization and has provided support and services to thousands more in the form of job coaching, vocational instruction, and employment placement assistance.

“PRIDE Industries offers U.S. veterans a welcoming and supportive environment as they work to reach their career goals,” said Tim Young, Vice President, Talent Management at PRIDE Industries. “We are honored by this recognition and remain ever vigilant in our resolve to network with community partners to recruit military veterans.”

Resources for veterans include PRIDE Industries’ one-of-a-kind I AM ABLE employment helpline [(844) 426-2253], a Veteran Employee Resource Group (ERG), and a Military Skills Translator tool that helps veterans match their skills and talent to a civilian career. In addition, PRIDE Industries can help veterans access paid internships as well as mentoring and training programs. And to help other companies increase their hiring of diverse candidates, including military veterans, the company provides recruiting services.

“We appreciate all the men and women who bravely served our country,” said Young. “It is our honor to provide our veteran heroes, active-duty spouses, the guard and reserve soldiers, and their families with employment opportunities. Thank you to U.S. Veterans Magazine and to all of our veteran referral partners.”
