Many companies pay little more than lip service to helping military veterans obtain civilian employment.
But one company is pledging significant revenues and hiring commitments to help the veteran cause.
Continuum, a leading MSP software and services provider based in Boston, MA, is donating eight percent of all new revenue from its expanded Service Desk offerings to the Continuum Veterans Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization established by the company with the expressed mission of supporting the transition of former military personnel to civilian careers.
Roughly 1 million U.S. veterans are returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. How will those U.S. veterans find jobs - especially amid such a weak U.S. job market? Continuum, the MSP software provider, wants to lend a hand. The company is launching a non-profit organization called Continuum Veterans Foundation. Here's the strategy.
Newly formed Foundation will receive a portion of Service Desk revenue from Continuum Managed Services that will be donated to non-profits that focus on helping veterans find jobs
WOBURN, MA - July 31, 2012 - Continuum Veterans Foundation, a newly formed Massachusetts corporation that has applied for 501(c)(3) non-profit organization status, announced today that it will provide financial support to local and national non-profit organizations that are focused on helping veterans find jobs. The Foundation has been established by Continuum Managed Services, LLC, a Massachusetts-based IT services company that is directing a portion of its Service Desk revenue, including the newly expanded 24 x 7 Service Desk and After Hours offering announced by the company today, to the Foundation, which is dedicated to "hiring our heroes." Senators John McCain, John Kerry and Scott Brown have recognized and commended Continuum's commitment to this important cause in an introductory video on the Foundation's website: www.hire-our-heroes.org.
