Learn how you can help support our vets
November 11 is Veteran’s Day, and you can help AT&T support America’s more than 400 million veterans by spreading the word about the 2017 #ThankOurHeroes campaign. Along with honoring the service of American armed services vets online at att.com/thankourheroes, AT&T is donating $500,000 this month to local organizations that support veterans, active-duty military and their families across the country.
As part of this year’s campaign, AT&T is inviting Americans to upload photos and videos to social with #ThankOurHeroes and watch and share exclusive video content, including the “Kids Say it Best” series and messages of appreciation from cast members of the AT&T original program, Rogue.
AT&T’s commitment to veterans extends beyond Veteran’s Day, too. All year long, vets receive a 15% discount on AT&T services. AT&T also regularly partners with veteran-service organizations such as Carry The Load, USO, Hire Heroes, and Care Coalition throughout the year.
“At the core of every veteran is the act of “service” and, at AT&T, we have a commitment to deliver best-in-class customer service, employee engagement and world class technology. Veterans happen to be a perfect fit,” JoHanna Martinez, AT&T Military Talent Attraction Manager, says. “We’ve been hiring veterans for more than 80 years because we understand the value they bring to our communities, customers and business needs.
To date, more than 14,000 vets are part of the AT&T employee network. They are supported by 49 employee-resource groups and represent 11% of new AT&T hires. Visit the www.att.jobs/military to learn more.
