We are committed to hiring and retaining military veterans, veterans with disabilities, and active military personnel. We support our uniformed services team members who return to work after active duty with a variety of jobs, confidential resources, educational information, and career guidance.
Sixty percent of our veteran team members have been with the company for five or more years.
In 2014, the company hired more than 1,100 veteran team members.
As of December 31, 2014, Wells Fargo has more than 7,600 self-identified veteran team members, including over 170 active military service members on leave. And Wells Fargo’s commitment to veterans doesn’t end once a job offer is made. The company strives to create a culture of caring that supports veteran team members throughout their careers.
Wells Fargo is committed to providing recruiters, hiring managers, and interviewers with the tools and knowledge needed to successfully recruit, hire, and retain veterans. As a result, the company offers many online and virtual training courses. In 2014, the company successfully launched the Enterprise Value of a Veteran training.
TEAM MEMBER NETWORK
The Veterans’ Team Member Network’s mission is to support and educate members of our Wells Fargo community who share an interest in veteran matters. The group networks with team members and the community through outreach efforts to promote greater veteran awareness and share opportunities that enhance the professional growth and development of its membership.
REEMPLOYMENT AND JOB SEARCH ASSISTANCE
When team members take extended leave to fulfill military-related service, Wells Fargo offers reemployment following their return from military service consistent with the provisions of USERRA. If a team member needs to relocate due to their spouse’s military duties, the company will provide dedicated resources to help them find a comparable position in the company.
Each year, the company contacts all self-identified veteran team members to share information about Wells Fargo’s career development process, tools, and resources. The company is dedicated to helping veteran team members grow and advance their careers based on their individual goals and aspirations.
