HR Plus and AlliedBarton Security Services Highlight Their Commitment to Hiring Military Veterans With New Presentation and Web Page

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Apr 24, 2012) - HR Plus, www.hrplus.com, a provider of comprehensive solutions for employment and background screening services, and AlliedBarton Security Services, www.alliedbarton.com, the industry's premier provider of highly trained security personnel, showcase their commitment to hiring military veterans with two new initiatives which encourage human resource professionals to hire our nation's heroes.

HR Plus' new military hiring web page, www.hrplus.com/Resources/MilitaryHiring.aspx, serves as a resource for military hiring information including resources from veteran's organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Project and the Employer Partnership of the Armed Forces.

"We encourage employers to become true partners with our nation's military organizations to maximize their ability to recruit military personnel, their spouses and care givers, and support those who have sacrificed so much to protect our freedom," said Bill Tate, President, HR Plus. "These groups are dedicated to putting our nation's military personnel to work, and can help employers and veterans alike."

HR Plus is a division of AlliedBarton, and both organizations see value in spreading the important message of military hiring.

Jerold Ramos, Manager of Talent Acquisition for AlliedBarton, will be a featured presenter during the HRO Today Forum in Washington D.C. at the Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center. Ramos will present "Help our Heroes, Hire a Vet" on Tuesday, May 1, 2012, at 4:45 p.m. with Erin Thede, Director, Employer Partnership Office, for the Office of the Chief Army Reserve, and Brian Nichols, Manager of Warriors to Work, Capital Region for the Wounded Warrior Project.

The HRO Today Forum will convene a series of consequential conversations with specific case studies, workshops, and outcomes. The Forum will also include "big picture" topics that cover HR leadership, executive management and operations.

"More than 13% of Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans are currently unemployed," said Ramos. "At this forum, we will encourage human resource leaders to work with veteran's organizations to maximize their recruitment from this extremely qualified talent pool."

AlliedBarton, AlliedBarton.com/MilitaryFriendly, is committed to hiring veterans and reservists across the country. AlliedBarton partners with military assistance groups, and works with state and community organizations to connect with quality candidates.
