First Lady Michelle Obama Recognizes DialAmerica's Military Hiring Initiative

DialAmerica Commits to Increasing Number of Military-Affiliated Employees
to Make Up 20 Percent of its Workforce by 2014

MAHWAH, N.J. – April 20, 2012

As part of her Joining Forces initiative, a national hiring effort intended to deliver thousands of job opportunities to service members and their families, First Lady Michelle Obama recognized DialAmerica among a select group of "forward-looking businesses" that have pledged to create more than 15,000 jobs for military families across the country.

"We're working hard on their behalf because we're proud of them," said Obama during a teleconference announcing the initiative on April 4. "Having an opportunity to have a decent job is one of the most important ways we can support these families."

As the cornerstone of its talent acquisition strategy, DialAmerica, through its partnerships with Jobs4America and the Military Spouse Employment Partnership, is increasing the number of its military-affiliated employees to make up 20 percent of its workforce by 2014.

"Military-affiliated employees embody team spirit, loyalty, dependability and leadership; traits that are highly valued by the business community," said Art Conway, CEO of DialAmerica. "By hiring them, DialAmerica has ensured that we will gain highly qualified and motivated employees that are prepared for the 21st century workplace."

With one in every four military spouses unemployed, they face unique challenges when pursuing a career, with time constraints and frequent relocation issues topping the list of obstacles. DialAmerica provides help and support to military families through flexible, family-friendly scheduling; maintenance of service accrual records; seamless transfers from one contact center to another in the event of relocation; as well as extensive training and immense growth opportunities.

DialAmerica has 23 contact centers located across the U.S. in close proximity to active military bases, including Charleston, S.C., El Paso, Texas, Jacksonville, Fla., Omaha, Neb. and San Diego, Calif.
