Our Mission

Support longtime, recent, and soon-to-be veterans as they navigate the modern workforce, adjust to civilian life, and grow as professionals, all through a network of like-minded veterans and supporters dedicated to helping their peers achieve success.

About Pride In Service

An Employee Resource Group at Pride Global, Pride In Service seeks to provide a platform for recent or soon-to-be veterans looking for help landing a job as they start their post-service career—and support for longtime veterans and their families through a community that empowers them to flourish in the civilian sector.

We understand the qualities that make veterans the world’s best employees and business leaders, from experience leading diverse teams in achieving goals to the kind of efficiency, resilience, and integrity that can only be forged in the world’s toughest workplace. Using that understanding, Pride In Service identifies job opportunities that match veterans’ skillsets and provides access to training opportunities, skill-building workshops, career development, and social events—all through our deep network of internal resources and partners.

A Message From Our CEO:

Dear Veterans,

I wanted to take this moment to say thank you for your service to our country. Your choice to serve and the sacrifices you’ve made along the way give the citizens of this great nation the ability to live their lives in freedom. Your strength, fortitude, and heroism inspire us all, and we believe they’re skills that will serve you extremely well in the civilian workforce.

At Pride Global, we’ve already seen the value veterans bring to our team, and our client partners are actively searching for talent like you. But we can do more than simply connect you with job opportunities with these clients—we want your talent, too.

Through our employee resource group, Pride in Service, we help support veterans with career advice and peer mentoring to ensure a smooth transition to the civilian world. And as our expert recruiters have shown through long-lasting partnerships with the world’s biggest companies, we understand exactly how to match people with roles that allow their careers to take off.

We look forward to welcoming you as a part of the Pride Family!

Leo Russell
Founder & CEO — Pride Global
