More than 6,000 of the approximately 63,000 U.S.-based Enterprise Holdings employees are military veterans or reservists. Enterprise's support for its military employees includes paying the salary differential for employees on active duty, so they continue to receive full pay throughout the duration of their service. For the remainder of 2013, Enterprise will maintain an active presence at military hiring fairs throughout the country, including upcoming events in Philadelphia, Orlando, Washington, D.C., Atlanta and Boston.
Supporting Military Families
In April, First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden jointly announced that the Joining Forces campaign had exceeded its goal of hiring or training more than 250,000 veterans or military spouses by the end of 2014. Collectively, hiring commitments from companies like Enterprise are expected to provide jobs or training for more than 700,000 veterans or military spouses by 2018.
Enterprise, which serves more than 50 U.S. military bases, has been widely recognized for its ongoing support for veterans. The company is a recipient of the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award, the highest honor given by the U.S. government for support of employees serving in the National Guard and Reserve. Most recently, the company was designated a 2013 Military Friendly Employer® by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs.
In 2012, Enterprise was honored for the second time as a Freedom Award Nominee by the ESGR, and was one of only two Missouri companies to receive the first Extraordinary Employer Support Award from the ESGR for sustained support of employees who serve in the National Guard and Reserve. Enterprise was also recognized in 2012 by the Vice Admiral, Chief of Naval Reserve, for the company's support of Sailors in the Naval Reserve.
