Veteran’s Day: More than 100 Years of Celebration

The first observed Veterans Day took place on November 11, 1919, on the one-year anniversary of the end of World War I. Originally named “Armistice Day,” Veterans Day became a US national holiday beginning in 1938. Today, November 11th is a day we set aside to recognize all those who have served our country in the various armed services, both in times of war and peace.

As we surpass 100 years of Veterans Day celebrations and continue to honor those who have served, it is important to consider and recognize the valuable contributions our veterans make to the workforce and the companies that hire them.

John Cordova, Vice President of Talent Solutions and a US Army veteran says, “Hiring veterans is a noble endeavor worthy of pursuing. It is also a smart and productive business strategy. Savvy, successful business leaders recognize the value that veterans bring to their organizations. Whether it is the accelerated learning curve veterans display, their ability to learn new skills and concepts quickly, the focus on teamwork within diverse groups, the ability to perform under pressure, or their proven leadership qualities, veterans are valuable contributors to the workforce – a true and significant return on investment.”

As we approach another Veterans Day celebration, lets pause to remember the veterans that have proudly served our country and, the companies that seek out and employ them! Thank you all.a and is expanding to Europe in Q1 of 2021. Its global technology hub and logistics command and control centers are based in Gurugram, India.
