Convergys Recognized at White House Ceremony Honoring Organizations That Have Supported U.S. Military Veterans and Military Spouses11:37 EDT Tuesday, April 30, 2013
WASHINGTON (Business Wire) -- Convergys Corporation (NYSE: CVG), a global leader in customer management, will be recognized today at a White House ceremony honoring organizations that have delivered significant support to U.S. military veterans and military spouses.
Hosted by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden, the ceremony recognizes organizations that have exemplified the goals of Joining Forces, the comprehensive national initiative to mobilize all sectors of society to give service members and their families the opportunities and support they have earned.
In the case of Convergys, those opportunities came in the form of jobs. In 2012 Convergys hired 2,655 U.S. military veterans and military spouses.
Today's White House ceremony will be attended by Convergys' Lori Anne Davis, Director, North America Agent Recruiting and Sandra Stanley, Operations Manager. Sandra is from Jacksonville, North Carolina. She is a veteran who served in the United States Marine Corps and has worked at Convergys since 2012.
Convergys President and CEO Andrea Ayers said, “Convergys is honored to be recognized by the White House and we are grateful for the sacrifices made by the current and former service members, and their families, who are a part of our team. Convergys is stronger as a result of the work ethic and exemplary customer service that members of the military and their spouses so consistently provide.”
Convergys, which earlier this month was named a winner in CivilianJobs.com's 2013 Most Valuable Employers for Military® ranking,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.
Our company 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.
