Sears Holdings Hosts Inaugural "Invite A Veteran To Work Day" At Headquarters, 1,800 Sears And Kmart Stores

In addition, this is also a time in which Sears Holdings will recognize the hard work of many of the company's military spouses. In many cases, they have been left to manage their career and family while a loved one is serving in the military. The company recognizes that military spouses also support our armed forces and have made a commitment to them through the Military Spouse Employment Program and Joining Forces.

Commitment to VeteransSears Holdings actively demonstrates its support of America's military through its actions, initiatives, and relentless effort to become the employer of choice for veterans. In 2012, Sears Holdings hired 3,500 military veterans and are on pace to exceed that number this year. Sears currently employs more than 30,000 U.S. veterans, with more than 1,500 still serving in the National Guard and reserves. Additionally, thousands of veteran spouses work for Sears Holdings.

The company created the Heroes at Home sm initiative in partnership with Rebuilding Together, the nation's largest all volunteer home rehabilitation organization, to meet the urgent need to assist military families facing hardship. This spring, more than 75 military family homes were rebuilt, including a cluster of homes in Red Hook, N.Y. that Sears and Rebuilding Together committed to rebuild last fall in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Thanks to donations by Shop Your Way rewards members, customers and associates, the program has raised more than $17 million over the past six years, funding more than 1,300 home rebuilds for America's military heroes. For more information about Heroes at Home, visit sears.com/heroesathome.

Sears has been recognized as one of the country's leading military employers. The company's leading recruitment programs place veterans in jobs within the organization as well as accommodations for their spouses who have relocated to be closer to them. The company also offers a military pay differential to its full-time associates who are reservists and serving on active duty, allowing each to continue participating in life insurance, medical and dental programs. Sears will also hold a comparable position for deployed employees for up to five years.
