In doing so, we will achieve the speed and scalability that sets us apart from all other providers.”
“We are grateful for the sacrifices that our nation’s veterans have made in support of our freedom around the world,” said Carey Smith, president and chief operating officer of Parsons. “Partnering with Workforce Opportunity Services increases our internal efficiency, while ensuring that our men and women returning from combat have more opportunities to be successful.”
Parsons currently employees 1,076 U.S. military veterans around the country. Their service, leadership and commitment has been invaluable to Parsons’ corporate goal of supporting global security and building a better world.
“The Workforce program has allowed us to quickly grow our support and digital offerings, providing improvement across many IT disciplines. At the same time, WOS gives us a great opportunity to give back to those who have served in the military protecting our country,” said Stu Kippelman, Parsons chief information officer. “The additional support and training that the candidates receive from the WOS program allows these candidates to build on the skills they learned in the military and transition them to the civilian workforce.
Staff that work at WOS facilities receive healthcare coverage, as well as college education tuition aimed at building their overall career trajectory.
Since its inception, WOS has provided organizations with outsourced technical and product support, allowing them to take advantage of the ever-growing alternative workforce while offering the highest quality of outsourced employment.
