Hilton Worldwide Participates in Inaugural Blackstone Veterans Hiring Summit

MCLEAN, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

This week, human resources executives from Hilton Worldwide are
attending Blackstone’s inaugural Veterans Hiring Summit to support the
hiring of American veterans across the alternative asset management
firm’s portfolio companies.

In support of the White House’s “Joining Forces” initiative, in April
Blackstone committed to hire 50,000 American veterans across its
portfolio of 78 companies over the next five years. The summit was
designed to help hiring executives within Blackstone’s portfolio
companies learn how to attract and hire veterans and to help the U.S.
Military and veterans organizations learn how they can help facilitate
this recruitment initiative.

As part of this commitment, Hilton Worldwide pledged to hire 10,000
veterans in the next five years. This goal was included in last
month’s announcement
of Hilton Worldwide’s Operation: Opportunity,
a major initiative to provide extensive support to American military
veterans and their families.

In addition to human resources executives from Blackstone’s 78 portfolio
companies, the summit is featuring Curtis L. Coy, Deputy Under Secretary
for Economic Opportunity at the Department of Veterans Affairs; Terry
Gerton, Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Veterans Employment and
Training Service (VETS) at the Department of Labor; Col. Rich Morales,
Executive Director of Joining Forces at the Office of the First Lady;
and Col. Robert Yost, Director of the U.S. Army’s Transition Strategic
Outreach Office.

The summit is covering a wide range of topics related to the veteran
hiring initiative, including the strengths of the veteran applicant
pool, coordination with local VA offices, and the role of mentorship in
ensuring a positive transition to civilian life for those who have
served our nation.
