Masco Hosts Veterans Panel with Hire Heroes USA
Masco is proud of its continuing partnership with Hire Heroes USA, a national nonprofit which provides free job search assistance to thousands of U.S. military members, veterans and their spouses.
In October, Masco hosted a company-wide discussion with Hire Heroes USA aimed at gaining a deeper understanding of the military organization, training, cultural barriers and what it’s like transitioning from the service to the civilian workforce.
After an introduction by Jon Sullivan, Executive Vice President & Chief Financial Officer at Behr Paint Company, two employees from the Masco family of companies, Jeffrey Rooney (Production Superintendent at Behr Paint Company) and Seth Muck (Help Desk Technician at Kichler Lighting), shared their personal stories around deciding to join the military, the personal and professional growth they experienced during duty, and the challenges they faced when transitioning to the civilian workforce. Team members from Hire Heroes USA facilitated an insightful discussion, offering research and best practices for onboarding a veteran to the corporate workplace.
Thanks to Jeffrey and Seth for sharing their experiences with the Masco community!
