BOSTON – Sept. 27, 2016 – Continuum Veterans Foundation, a nonprofit organization providing financial support to charities that focus on helping veterans find jobs in IT, is an Exhibitor Sponsor of Navigate 2016, the third annual user conference of Continuum®, the only channel-exclusive IT management platform company and sole donor to the Foundation. Nearly 700 attendees are coming together on Wednesday, September 28 – Friday, September 30, 2016 at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston. Atlanta-based Hire Heroes USA, the pre-eminent national nonprofit organization providing veteran employment services, is a guest exhibitor of Continuum. The organization recently announced confirming more than 11,000 veterans hired across the country.
“We congratulate Hire Heroes USA for its success in assisting a record number of veterans with free employment services, confirming 11,000 veterans hired in civilian jobs to-date,” said Jeanne Hopkins, Board Director at Continuum Veterans Foundation and Senior Vice President & CMO at Continuum. “Uniquely skilled, our veterans possess commitment, adaptability and loyalty, and because of their service to our country, they deserve great opportunity. We encourage all in attendance at Navigate 2016 – including our MSP partners as well as technology partners – to utilize Hire Heroes USA to help fill vacant IT job openings with qualified veterans.”
Continuum Veterans Foundation has donated more than $200,000 since 2013 to Hire Heroes USA, helping them to provide free employment services, including online assessments, resume writing and career counseling. Continuum Veterans Foundation receives a percentage of corporate profits from Continuum Managed Services and disperses funds to organizations that support veterans and their spouses transitioning from military to civilian life, giving back to those who have served the U.S.
Continuum employees also donate 20 hours a year of paid company time to various veteran causes. Continuum believes it is essential for successful companies to stand for a purpose beyond revenue and to support causes far greater than itself.
At Navigate, on Thursday, September 29, 2016, Francisco A. Ureña, Secretary of Veterans’ Services for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is recognizing Continuum Veterans Foundation with a Governor’s Citation, the celebration of an extraordinary accomplishment.
