Veterans return from overseas hoping for better circumstances and new prospects; however, they often find that the road to opportunity isn’t always paved.
Active duty and retired military service members are used to seeing their fair share of struggles. Veterans return from overseas expecting better circumstances and a new chance at life; however, they often find that the road to opportunity isn’t always paved. It’s an unfortunate reality, but disabled military veterans have historically had trouble finding long-term employment after their tours are complete.
Business process outsourcing firm Alorica recently recognized this trend and decided to help combat unemployment for these individuals. Known as AloriCares, the initiative is dedicated to providing veterans and active duty spouses the opportunity to build a career—not just an initial job prospect after their tour duties are complete. Alorica dedicates time, energy and corporate resources to building a sustainable program that not only recruit veterans, service disabled veterans and military spouses, but also empowers them to grow professionally and enables them to provide for their families on a consistent basis.
