Veteran Hiring Initiative
Working Heroes is a nationwide initiative to help experienced veterans and transitioning service members find rewarding employment opportunities with highly regarded LAUNCH customers. We know the important value veterans bring to a tightening aviation maintenance labor market. That’s why we partner with commercial and government MROs and manufacturers who share our deep commitment to military veterans, to provide an environment that helps them reach their full potential.
Why hire veterans?
With an industry wide shortage of aviation maintenance personnel, transitioning veterans are quality workers, have leadership experience, discipline, a proven work ethic, and are excellent team players. Experienced veterans increase your productivity and enable completion of projects on time. They are a source of future maintenance leadership.
Why partner with LAUNCH?
- LAUNCH has a team of dedicated recruiters who are also veterans. They
speak the same language and can properly qualify and prepare your candidates.
- We've successfully placed over 1000 veteran candidates through Working Heroes.
- LAUNCH has been a Top Ten Military Friendly Employer for four years running.
- In 2019, LAUNCH was officially awarded the Gold HIRE Vets Medallion Award by the US Department of Labor.
How does the program work?
Experienced veterans have become a valuable asset when augmenting an existing workforce. LAUNCH has built an extensive database of military vets with aviation maintenance experience. We have a dedicated military recruiting team that speaks their language, understands their unique skill sets, and knows best where to place them in civilian jobs.
We understand that every customer is different. That’s why we carefully customize each Working Heroes initiative to meet the specific goals and needs of our customer. We’ll take a listen-first approach and work together to determine how experienced veterans can successfully integrate into your existing workforce.
