Eurpac hires veterans, retirees, and military dependents.
Our company doesn’t do this out of some sense of obligation, or pressure, or gratitude. We are grateful for the service of those who risk their lives for this country, and their families. But, we run a business, not a charity. And that business runs better when we hire members of the military community.
We’ve learned over time that military-affiliated employees are more responsible, more reliable, and show better problem solving than the average employee. These people have already done things that were much more challenging than working for us. They’ve already been taught to overcome obstacles and think for themselves – we just have to train them on our product.
Eurpac is responsible for moving hundreds of millions of dollars in quality grocery and retail products around the world, and ensuring it gets to the customer on time and ready to purchase. We routinely deal with perishable and time-sensitive products, and our clients count on us to be the experts on getting their products to the shelf. Hiring members of the military community gives us the institutional skill set to make this possible, and properly service the brands we represent.
Last month, we took part in the American Logistics Association’s pledge to collectively hire 25,000 veterans and their family members. This was a pledge that was easy for us to make. Hiring veterans is not only the right thing to, but it’s also what we do. Our business depends on it.
