The 3,000 military veterans, National Guard members and reservists who work for Gaithersburg, Md.-based Sodexo have their own club: the year-old HONOR group. HONOR stands for Honoring Our Nation’s finest with Opportunity and Respect.
The networking group within the giant food-services company now has three regional chapters.
The HONOR group offers support, guidance and resources to employees and families connected to the military by offering development opportunities, a forum to recognize and celebrate contributions made by service members and their families to the country and partnerships with community groups that support veterans, reservists and active-duty service members.
The organization also:
- Actively recruits former military personnel for jobs.
- Trains Sodexo recruiters to help vets translate their military experience into skills for civilian employment.
- Hosts a career web site for veterans.
- Annually participates in more than 20 military-focused career fairs.
