CHINO, CA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2012) - Alorica (www.alorica.com), a leading provider of customer management outsourcing solutions, announced today that it has joined forces with the 100,000 Jobs Mission; a coalition of major corporations committed to hiring 100,000 transitioning service members and military veterans by 2020. Alorica currently provides over 250 jobs to veterans working throughout the United States and has had a specific focus on hiring veterans for the last two years.
"We are honored to be part of the 100,000 jobs coalition -- a very important effort for our nation. We take great pride in hiring veterans into our organization," said Andy Lee, Alorica's Chairman and CEO, "and joining the coalition is a symbol of our commitment to helping veterans mainstream into society after serving. Our existing veteran employees take their military training and discipline and apply it to their daily duties and operate with integrity, quality and operational excellence. They receive many commendations from our clients and their customers."
"We are proud to welcome Alorica to the 100,000 Jobs Mission," said Tom Higgins, head of military and veteran affairs and operational control for JPMorgan Chase, a founding member of the 100,000 Jobs Mission. "Alorica's leaders recognize the tremendous value military veterans bring to their organization, and their commitment serves as an example for other businesses."
Alorica will also hire veterans for its AloriCares division which was specifically established in 2010 to support the hiring of disabled veterans to take customer calls from the convenience of their home. AloriCares was created in partnership with a major telecommunications client and allows veterans to telecommute from dedicated workspaces within their homes, earn a good wage and regain their independence. Employees are provided with a computer and other necessary tools to succeed.
"As a current Army Reservist involved in veteran employment, I know the importance of providing our veterans with a good stable working environment after their deployment," said Glenn Lesniak, Vice President of AloriCares and Major General, US Army Reserve. "Our AloriCares division is the only one of its kind in the customer management industry where we staff our virtual, work-at-home contact centers entirely with disabled veterans. We are excited to be part of the 100,000 jobs coalition," added Lesniak.
