Since the launch of the Vets@Work program in 2011, KKR has deepened our relationships with existing participants by developing a series of tools and resources for our participating portfolio companies, including expert third-party advisors, and opportunities for our portfolio companies to share best practices with each other through facilitated semiannual group discussions and webinars.
The Vets@Work initiative highlights the extensive range of talents and leadership abilities veterans can bring to private sector employers. The initiative formalizes and strengthens KKR’s efforts to promote veteran-focused career development and support retention practices at our U.S.-based private equity portfolio companies, which as of December 31, 2015 employed more than 400,000 people across a range of industries. Since 2011, KKR’s participating Vets@Work companies have hired nearly 48,300 veterans and military spouses.
