Supporting Veterans with OpportunityThroughout Prudential's long history we have had a deep appreciation for the service and sacrifices of members of the military and Veterans. As a company, we understand the value Veterans bring to the workforce, including practiced leadership skills, commitment, discipline, ability to perform under extremely stressful situations, and a solid work ethic.
Prudential's support for the military and Veterans dates back to
the founding of the company more than 135 years ago and
remains strong today.
In the spirit of Prudential's longstanding commitment to U.S. Veterans, active service members and Veterans already in our employ, Prudential has established several programs that provide access to quality education, job training, and employment opportunities. Prudential also seeks to advocate for Veterans among our corporate peers.
Prudential is committed to engaging our employees and hiring managers with insight and education about the challenges Veterans face and the value Veterans can bring to the workplace. The Prudential Military Veterans Network (VETnet), a Business Resource Group composed of Prudential employees, provides a vehicle for communication and for sharing common issues and offers an important channel of communication between Prudential and the Veterans' community at large.
VETalent, a partnership with Workforce Opportunities Services a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization and a local university, prepares Veterans for new careers through a work-study program leading to a certification. We are actively engaged in efforts to expand this highly effective program. By collaborating with other Fortune 500 companies to share best practices and promote adoption of successful education and training models, we aspire to assure a better outcome for Veterans.
We are committed to supporting veterans service organizations through philanthropic grants, through employee volunteerism, and by matching qualifying contributions made by our employees. These programs align with our long-standing commitment to improving the communities where we live and work.
