The U.S. Chamber of Commerce recently announced that APi Group Inc. is the winner of the 5th Annual Hiring Our Heroes Don Weber Wounded Veteran and Military Caregiver Employment Award. This award is presented for demonstrated leadership in addressing the unique challenges and demands for wounded warriors, spouses, and caregivers in their search for meaningful employment.

The winners were chosen in six categories and APi Group Inc., as well as, Corporation of America (HCA), Starbucks, Prudential Financial, Camo2Commerce, and Keith Nattrass from General Motors received top honors.

The Hiring Our Heroes Awards Committee selected winners based on criteria such as innovative recruiting and retention strategies, military community engagement and leadership, as well as an ongoing commitment to hire veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses.

"APi Group has been a true leader in the movement to hire and support our nation's wounded veterans and those who care for them," said Eric Eversole, a vice president at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and president of Hiring Our Heroes. "APi Group understands the value in hiring the men and women who have served our country and has dedicated extraordinary efforts toward improving the lives of America's wounded veterans and caregivers."

Hiring Our Heroes is a nationwide initiative to help veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses find meaningful employment. Working with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's vast network of state and local chambers and other strategic partners from the public, private and nonprofit sectors, Hiring Our Heroes has helped hundreds of thousands of veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment through more than 950 job fairs in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia, and on military installations overseas; a suite of free online career-based resources; and the Hiring 500,000 Heroes campaign.
