Allied Universal, a security and facility services company in North America, honors and supports all members of the military daily, not just on Veterans Day this November.

“While many businesses talk the talk about why military veterans are important hires, the physical security sector actually walks the walk,” said Steve Jones, chairman and CEO of Allied Universal. “We honor and appreciate the sacrifices made by our nations’ military and we constantly seek out ways to show that appreciation each and every day.”

According to the Freedonia Report of 2020, the security services sector is rapidly growing, with “global security service revenues forecast to rise 3.6 percent per year to $263 billion in 2024, which provides significant opportunities for veterans to rise through the ranks. The physical security sector offers vast opportunities for advancement especially for the military. Advancing in the physical security sector demands many of the same qualities military veterans are known for including battle-tested real-world experience, trainability, adaptability, dependability and ability to deliver quality work in pressure cooker situations.

“After serving in the military, working in the security industry can become a rewarding second career for military veterans,” said Joshua Skule, a retired U.S. Marine, a former FBI executive assistant director for intelligence and currently senior vice president of Allied Universal Risk Advisory and Consulting Services.

Allied Universal recently received the Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans Gold Medallion Award through for the company’s exemplary efforts to recruit, employ and retain our nation’s veterans.

Over the last five years, Allied Universal has hired more than 44,000 veterans and is constantly seeking veterans to join its team.
