NBC News cites IVMF, JPMC, VCTP in article on 2013 Work Life Legacy Military Awards

IVMF and founding partner JPMorgan Chase & Co. were featured in an NBCNews.com article on winners of the Families and Work Institute’s Work Life Legacy Military Awards for 2013. The recognition cites JPMC as a company that has gone the extra mile to help vets as they return to the civilian workplace. JPMC has a dedicated military recruiting team and internal military training program that has created more than 5,300 jobs for veterans in just two years. Maureen Casey, managing director of JPMC military and veterans affairs, said, “We think it’s important not only because it’s good for our business, but we truly believe that we owe this generation of service members the opportunity for success, and jobs is one of them.” In addition, JPMC was cited for launching the 100,000 Jobs Mission two years ago with a goal to hire 100,000 vets by 2020 (to date there have been almost 65,000 new hires), co-founding the IVMF and creation of the Veterans Career Transition Program, no-cost training which helps vets learn marketable skills to help them land  jobs in the private sector. Additional 2013 winners include Cornell University (a member of the IVMF’s EBV national consortium), Merck and Verizon Communications.
