Company will place vets in San Antonio jobs

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

PeopleScout has just announced it has been selected by Walmart as a recruitment partner to help hire 100,000 veterans over the next five years, including veterans for San Antonio jobs. The RPO provider will place veterans in jobs all over the United States, including Chicago.

The multi-year Walmart engagement calls for PeopleScout to provide end-to-end recruitment and career counseling services and is the largest ever RPO engagement focused on veteran hiring.

PeopleScout and Walmart are partnering to launch a talent exchange to match vets with job opportunities that most closely fit their background and interests. The exchange will enable veterans to be considered for career opportunities at Walmart and with dozens of leading companies interested in hiring veterans.

Veteran hiring efforts are core to our mission at PeopleScout and we are honored to partner with Walmart on this highly important initiative,” said Patrick Beharelle, CEO of SeatonCorp. “Our view is that the private sector has a special obligation to find a role for those who served and a unique opportunity to benefit from the skills acquired through military service. In our own offices, as part of our partnership with Walmart, the PeopleScout delivery team will be comprised almost entirely of U.S. Military Veterans.”

PeopleScout, a provider of recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) services, currently places more U.S. Military veterans in full-time employment than any recruitment firm in the world.
