DynCorp International (DI) hired nearly 4,100 veterans last year, more than 50 percent of all new hires for 2012. DI is committed to veterans, repeatedly being recognized as an organization that values the experience and dedication veterans bring to its business as employees, business partners and suppliers.
“The experience veterans bring to DynCorp International is highly valued,” said Bob Lehman, senior vice president of Human Resources at DynCorp International. “Not only do they bring unique strengths to our business because they know and understand our customers, but they also share the core values DI embraces on and off the job.”
Veterans play a key role in DI’s global operations supporting U.S. national security and foreign policy objectives, delivering support solutions for defense, diplomacy and international development in more than 35 countries around the world. Their military experience is instrumental in working with DI’s vast array of programs in Aviation, Air Operations, Contingency Operations, International Development, Intelligence Training and Solutions, Operations and Maintenance, Security Services, and Training and Mentoring.
DI, along with many other organizations in the U.S., pledged to hire 4,000 veterans as part of the White House’s Joining Forces initiative. Joining Forces is a comprehensive national initiative to mobilize all sectors of society to give U.S. service members and their families the opportunities and support they have earned.
To aid in fulfilling their pledge, DI launched a comprehensive military and veteran outreach program. Recruiters from Worldwide Recruiting & Staffing Services LLC (WRSS), a wholly owned subsidiary of DynCorp International, worked closely with military base transition offices, presenting at employer panels as well as providing career opportunity information directly to members planning to retire from service. WRSS recruiters also partnered with several commercial organizations that specialize in providing career assistance to veterans, increased their presence at job fairs targeting veterans and publicizing open opportunities more directly to veterans.
