U.S. Bank Surpasses Veteran Hiring Goal

U.S. Bank has surpassed its goal of hiring 1,000 military veterans since January 1, 2012, in time to mark the Veterans Day holiday. So far, U.S. Bank has added 1,114 veterans to its roster since Jan. 1, 2012, and now employs approximately 2,000 veterans nationwide.

“I am extremely proud of the success of our hiring program and of the efforts of everyone who helped recruit veterans,” said Richard Davis, chairman, president and chief executive officer of U.S. Bancorp, parent company of U.S. Bank. “Every veteran we hire brings a strong work ethic and wealth of skills to his or her job. U.S. Bank is a better company because of our veterans, including employees who serve in the National Guard and Reserve. It’s an honor to have them on board, and we thank them for their service to our country and for protecting our freedom.”

U.S. Bank achieved its hiring goals through an aggressive campaign supported by executive leadership and hiring managers across the company. In addition, U.S. Bank has implemented several recruiting and training programs specifically for veterans through its Proud to Serve program ( http://proudtoserve.usbank.com). In 2011, U.S. Bank launched a Military Leader Development Program. In 2012, it enhanced its HR policies, including offering newly hired veterans extra paid time off to participate in re-integration activities or attend to service-related medical issues. U.S. Bank’s industry leading military leave policies exceed state and federal standards.

U.S. Bank has created a variety of financial education products specifically for customers serving in the military and their families. In addition, U.S. Bank continues to offer customers special support through the U.S. Bank Military Service Center (1-800-934-9555), a dedicated customer service line for military members and their families staffed with bankers familiar with the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act.

U.S. Bank has been recognized for its hiring efforts and for being military friendly. Accolades include being named a 2013 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award winner, and Military Times magazine naming the bank to its “Best of Vets: Employers” list in 2013, the fourth year on the list. In addition, G.I. Jobs magazine named U.S. Bank to its “Top 100-Military Friendly Employers” list for 2012 and 2013, and U.S. Veterans Magazine named the bank to its list of “Top 100 Veteran-Friendly Companies” in 2012 and 2013.
