Holland commits to hiring 500 veterans

Holland, a subsidiary of YRC Worldwide specializing in next-day delivery, has partnered with Hiring Our Heroes and FASTPORT in a commitment to hire 500 veterans.

“America is at a turning point with an estimated one million veterans returning home in the next five years,” said Scott Ware, president of Holland. “Our business is expanding and job opportunities abound. Holland is proud to welcome home our veterans with great career prospects.”

FASTPORT provides selection, qualification and hiring process technology.

“The Holland core values of integrity, respect, excellence and hard work personify the values and work ethic of our veterans,” added Ware. “Veterans fit in well with the Holland culture, and we are proud to partner with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes and FASTPORT to help find great talent.”

Hiring Our Heroes launched in March 2011 as a nationwide initiative to help veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment.

“We are thrilled Holland has increased their commitment to hire more veterans,” said Eric Eversole, vice president at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and executive director of Hiring Our Heroes. “The trucking industry is a great fit for veterans. We look forward to working together to help Holland find and employ more talented veterans and transitioning service men and women.”
