ANDOVER, Mass. – Philips North America today announced support for Joining Forces, a comprehensive U.S. initiative to give service members and their families the career opportunities and resources they have earned. Philips North America will expand its military recruitment efforts and local volunteer programs to include organizations supporting military families and honoring service member contributions.
Philips’ support for Joining Forces illustrates the company’s commitment to recruiting the expertise of our nation’s heroes. Philips understands the distinct experience and leadership inherent to military personnel, and intends to leverage the valuable skills learned through military service to help fill a variety of essential roles for the growing company within the disciplines of IT, field service engineering, sales & marketing, software engineering, clinical education, and quality and regulatory. Service personnel seeking employment opportunities will be able to find Philips career fairs and open positions on the Joining Forces Web site and Veteran’s Job Bank.
“Philips sees Joining Forces as an ideal way to bolster our military recruiting efforts with the initiative’s broad reach, robust services and focused commitment on addressing top issues for military families,” said Greg Sebasky, Chairman for Philips North America. “Joining Forces is not only helping our nation’s heroes and their families, but it is helping to make a stronger country by connecting leading companies like Philips with a highly qualified workforce who shares our commitment to innovation and improving people’s lives.”
“Philips North America is doing exactly what we hoped leaders in the private sector would do when the First Lady and Dr Biden launched Joining Forces last year – reaching out to veterans and military families with meaning and impact, “said Captain Brad Cooper, Executive Director of Joining Forces.
