Quanta has committed to being a veteran-ready company, and we are proud of our ongoing collaborations with the following organizations and initiatives.
Quanta H.E.R.O.E.S. (Hiring, Educating and Retaining our Exceptional Service Men and Women) is a comprehensive initiative to expand our long-standing support for the men and women of the u.s. Armed Forces. We are a veteran-ready company.
In addition to hiring those who have served our military, we’re also committed to ensuring they have the tools they need to effectively transition into a successful civilian career. By joining the energy infrastructure industry, they are continuing to serve their country in a different way — by keeping our lights and heat on and our communications connected. As part of our commitment, we also encourage other companies within our industry to hire America’s heroes.
Quanta companies have partnered with Hiring Our Heroes to further expand our commitment to hiring veterans. The u.s. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes (hoh) initiative launched in March 2011 as a nationwide effort to connect veterans, service members and military spouses with meaningful employment opportunities. Working with the u.s. Chamber of Commerce’s vast network of state and local chambers and strategic partners from the public, private and non-profit sectors, the goal is to create a movement across America in hundreds of communities where veterans and military families return every day.
Quanta has invested in Vector Force Development, a veteran-owned business, that works to transition military veterans to jobs in the utility industry, whether it be in the field or the office. Vector provides solutions across the entire utility industry, including gas distribution, electric, lineworker training, communications, fiber network, program management, safety, quality control, CDL and heavy equipment.
Our partnerships with these organizations help enable hiring, recruiting and retaining military veterans.
