On Veterans Day, we celebrate and honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to sacrifice for us all.
As a veteran, I fully comprehend the challenges of translating active duty skills to a civilian job. At TWC, we focus on attracting and hiring great talent, which includes the talented veteran population. Currently, 8.2 percent of our workforce self-identifies as veterans—higher than the national average of veterans within the job force.
Each year, on November 11th, our country comes together to recognize the commitment the men and women of our armed forces make to protect our freedom and uphold the liberties we have been afforded. Whirlpool Corporation joins millions of Americans as we celebrate the service and the sacrifice of our nation’s veterans.
