Disney Announces the Heroes Work Here Initiative to Hire Military Veterans

On March 12, 2012 Disney President and CEO Bob Iger announced that the company will be proactively looking to hire, train and support returning veterans.

The company’s new initiative, called Heroes Work Here, will provide at least 1,000 career opportunities to returning veterans over the next three years. Disney is looking to support military veterans and help civilians transition back into civilian life. The jobs will span all segments of The Walt Disney Company worldwide and will range from internships to leadership positions.

Disney will also launch a national public awareness campaign to encourage job opportunities for veterans, as well as hosting career fairs and participating in events showcasing job opportunities for returning military veterans.

According to the Heroes Work Here website:

“The Walt Disney Company is proud to present our Veterans’ Initative, ‘Heroes Work Here.’ At Disney we recognize the hard work, dedicate and loyalty it takes to serve your country honorably, no matter what point and time in your life it may be. Our veterans and their families have given so much to us, and we want to continue to give back.”
