Pivotal Payments partners with Hire Heroes USA to promote employment initiatives for veterans

Alpharetta, Ga., March 30, 2015 – Pivotal Payments, a leading provider of technology-driven global payment processing solutions has entered into a corporate partnership with Hire Heroes USA, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping veterans transform their military service into civilian success by creating job opportunities through personalized employment training and corporate engagement. Pivotal Payments will actively support Hire Heroes through direct donations and as an employment partner.

Pivotal Payments' generous contributions will positively impact U.S. veterans and their spouses as they transition from military service to civilian life. "Hire Heroes USA is absolutely committed to providing free, best-in-class employment transition services to our nation's veterans," said Brian Stann, combat Marine and CEO of Hire Heroes USA. "As a nonprofit organization, we depend on the support of our corporate partners and donors to allow us to continue to serve deserving veterans. We're grateful to the demonstrated commitment of Pivotal Payments—they, like all of our donors, can be assured that their generous contribution to Hire Heroes USA will provide immediate and much-needed employment support to transitioning veterans."

The funds provided by Pivotal Payments will expand Hire Heroes USA's reach, allowing more veterans and their spouses to seek civilian employment through hands-on, personalized services. The majority of Hire Heroes USA's work is completed virtually through online and telephone career coaching comprised of a three-phase process of assessment, training and mentorship that helps clients understand their transferable skills, learn effective job search techniques and create professionally-revised, business resumes. The personalized career coaching approach used by Hire Heroes USA is nationally recognized as a best-in-class model, and has resulted in an average of 42 veterans hired each week, and 1,940 confirmed veterans hired in 2014.

To further their commitment to veteran employment, Pivotal Payments has also joined Hire Heroes USA as an employment partner. By posting jobs on the Hire Heroes USA Job Board, Pivotal Payments demonstrates their support for Hire Heroes USA's vision to drastically decrease the unemployment rate of the men and women who have honorably served this country.

"Pivotal Payments is proud to partner with Hire Heroes to create rewarding work opportunities across the U.S. for the brave men and women of our military," said Philip Fayer, president and chief executive officer of Pivotal Payments. "Our veterans bring motivation, dedication and experience to the civilian workforce and together we can empower them to thrive in fulfilling careers."
