Walmart has promised to hire any honorably discharged veteran for up to a year after he or she leaves active duty.
Through its Veterans Welcome Home Commitment, the retail giant aims to hire more than 100,000 veterans over five years.
Walmart CEO Bill Simon has said the discount chain is the country’s largest private employer of veterans. In April, he wrote to 50 U.S. CEOs to urge them to commit to hiring more veterans.
He called veterans “quick learners and team players and ... leaders with discipline, training and a passion for service.”
The Walmart Foundation has committed $20 million through 2015 to helping veterans and their families transition from the military into the civilian workforce through programs that provide job training, transition support and education.
