During a meeting with President Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, IBM made a massive announcement that benefits veterans across the country.
While IBM CEO was meeting with the two leaders and other various business executives, the company announced that over the next four years they will hire 2,000 U.S. military veterans.
"The men and women who have served in our country's armed forces have unique talents and skill sets that make them a natural fit for some of the technology industry's most exciting fields," Diane Gherson, IBM's Senior VP of Human Resources said in a statement.
The plan to hire 2,000 veterans is part of a larger plan to expand IBM’s workforce through the hiring of 25,000 new workers. According to The Street, IBM also plans to expand its nationwide program to train veterans.
This is incredible news! It is wonderful to see companies reaching out to the men and women that have put their lives on the line to serve and protect our country.
