Two of the biggest employers in our area are joining
forces with the U-S Army.
Logistics Health Incorporated and Gundersen Health
Systems just became the first companies in Wisconsin
to get involved with the Army's 'PAYS program.'
Under the program.
soldiers preparing to leave the army are matched with
jobs at partner companies based on skill-sets, training,
and where they'd like to live once they leave the
Servicemembers are guaranteed interviews.
and L-H-I and Gundersen get access to a pool of highly
skilled, highly trained men and women.
Folks in the service learn teamwork, which is really
important in providing our care as well, they learn
leadership skills which help us have a better workfroce.
To be honest with you, we believe in being dedicated
to something bigger than ourselves.
I believe, for every American, you owe it to those
servicemembers coming back into the business community,
who protected your freedoms, to give them an opportunity
to succeed when they come out.
To me, that's what this allows us to do.
It really benefits community, it benefits corporations,
it benefits the Army.
In all three levels, this is really about taking care
of the soldier.
The soldier has a way to easily transition into a
community he wants to be a part of and into a corporation
that gladly wants him.
There are more than 550 companies nationwide involved
in the PAYS program.
