Commitment to hiring veterans with disabilities, assisting them in maintaining jobs
ResCare, Inc., the country’s largest private human services company, has joined Hero Health Hire, a coalition of companies and other entities in the health care industry united with the goal of employing wounded veterans. Launched in Washington, D.C., in 2011, Hero Health Hire includes health care companies, associations and hospitals that collectively employ hundreds of thousands of people. Each member commits to helping veterans with disabilities find and retain jobs in health care.
“ResCare continues its focus on recruiting and hiring veterans of our military services by joining Hero Health Hire,” said Ralph G. Gronefeld, Jr., ResCare President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our commitment to hiring wounded veterans isn’t a charitable endeavor; it’s a deliberate plan to add effective, experienced, dedicated leaders to our company at all levels. We know our veterans are strengthened and enriched by their service, and it only makes sense to put them in a position to apply their skills and positive attitude in helping the people we serve.”
Hero Health Hire unites the health care industry with government agencies and the military to understand and eliminate the barriers to employment facing veterans with disabilities. The organization also develops ways to support veterans in their transition from military to civilian life. Since its inception, Hero Health Hire has recruited additional industry partners representing nearly one million employees with worksites in every U.S. state.
The health care industry is considered the fastest growing industry in our economy, requiring talented individuals to help meet multi-generational health care needs. The industry is also uniquely positioned to understand and support the needs of our nation’s wounded warriors who return home to face physical and mental health challenges.
