Hiring our Heroes

Hiring Our Heroes, a program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, launched in March 2011 as a nationwide initiative to help veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses find meaningful employment opportunities. Working with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s vast network of state and local chambers and strategic partners from the public, private, and non-profit sectors, our goal is to create a movement across America in hundreds of communities where veterans and military families return every day.

History

Time Flies: The FedEx Timeline

It’s not every day that a new industry takes modern form, but that’s what happened when FedEx Chairman and CEO Frederick W. Smith founded Federal Express. The company’s “hub and spoke” system enabled efficient overnight express service, and FedEx was the first to pioneer tracking and tracing capability so customers would know where their shipments were. Over more than four decades, FedEx has built a portfolio of innovative solutions that connect customers to more than 220 countries and territories. That’s 99 percent of the world’s global GDP. Imagine the possibilities.

2015

U.S. Chamber of Commerce welcomes Hiring Our Heroes to the Veteran Employment Advisory Council (VEAC).

By joining the VEAC Chairman’s Circle, FedEx continues to grow its commitment to America’s military families by connecting military members and spouses to meaningful job opportunities.
