UnitedHealth Group is joining the 100,000 Jobs Mission, a coalition of

major U.S. corporations that share the goal of hiring 100,000

transitioning service members and military veterans by 2020.

As a part of this commitment, UnitedHealth Group will actively recruit

military service members and veterans through targeted outreach and

hiring and recruitment events.

“Our nation’s veterans have many characteristics highly valued by

UnitedHealth Group. They are motivated and highly skilled individuals

with a strong work ethic,” said Rich Hughes, senior vice president,

Talent Acquisition, Development and Mobility. “The 100,000 Jobs Mission

gives us another channel to recruit talented employees, and we are

grateful for the opportunity to support our military veterans who have

bravely served our country.”

Joining the 100,000 Jobs Mission is one of many ways UnitedHealth Group

supports veterans and their families. UnitedHealth Group partners with a

variety of organizations to help source military and veteran candidates

such as the Military

Spouse Employment Partnership, RecruitMilitary and the Wounded

Warrior Project. UnitedHealthcare, a UnitedHealth Group company, is the

presenting sponsor of Ride

2 Recovery, an organization supporting physical and psychological

rehabilitation programs for injured veterans, featuring cycling as the

core activity.

To date, 41 corporations have joined the 100,000 Jobs Mission and

collectively hired more than 12,000 veterans.
