Sysco to Be Featured on Military Makeover: Operation Career; Marie Robinson Shares
HOUSTON, TX - Lights, camera, action! Sysco recently made a television appearance on Military Makeover: Operation Career, which aired on Lifetime Television on July 22 and July 28. The show features military veterans that have transitioned to civilian life while shining a light on companies like the distributor that offer employment opportunities.
“At Sysco, we know that investing in veterans is simply good business,” said Marie Robinson, Executive Vice President, Chief Supply Chain Officer, and a Desert Storm and Desert Shield United States Army Veteran. “Military organizations have strong cultures and shared values, emphasize teamwork, build trust among members, and understand the importance of people and relationships to mission success. These qualities, along with the fundamental skill sets the military instills in its members—honor, courage, discipline, and service to others—make veterans uniquely strong job candidates not just at Sysco but in every type of business.”
Montel Williams hosts the program, according to a release, and the episode features Robinson in addition to transportation supervisors Tim Jackson, a U.S. Army veteran from the company’s Central Illinois site, and Eric Young, a U.S. Marine Corp Veteran from the Ventura, California, site.
Sysco has dedicated resources focused on military recruiting and experts that match veterans’ skills and experience with the right company opportunities. The company also partners with military recruiting organizations RecruitMilitary and Orion that support veterans transitioning into civilian careers.
The distributor’s Veterans Outreach Associate Resource Group (ARG) also creates and supports programs to recruit, retain, and develop U.S. military veteran talent from a broad range of backgrounds.
