PARSIPPANY, N.J. – June 29, 2015 – In an effort to recruit highly qualified military talent that are ready to go to work after fulfilling their obligations and service to the nation, Sun Chemical has partnered with Orion International to implement a “Military Talent Program.”
Sun Chemical implemented this program as a way to give back to those that stood as the last line of defense for the country and as a way to find highly qualified job candidates.
Sun Chemical formed the partnership with Orion International to help with the recruiting process. Orion will handle the brand marketing for Sun Chemical’s “Military Talent Program” by attending and planning military job fairs, transition classes and base visits, and creating a customized microsite built specifically for Sun Chemical to drive traffic and create an additional pool of candidates interested in a career with Sun Chemical.
The partnership became official after the two organizations started working together on a contingency basis beginning in 2014 and had impactful results.
“The printing industry is a mature industry and we found ourselves in a place where we needed to recruit and develop the next generation of talent for Sun Chemical. We wondered if Orion’s network with the military could be the pipeline to help us build a bench,” said Jarred Carter, Vice President of Sales and Customer Technical Service, North American Inks, Sun Chemical. “As we started attending Orion events, we found the kind of people we have been looking for to meet our present and future business needs—people with strong work ethic, discipline, and core foundational competencies. We’ve had twenty placements at Sun Chemical through this partnership this past year and they have brought great ideas that have energized our team while also making a strong impression on our customers.”
Military candidates that are hired will likely fill roles as either in-plant managers or in business management. For those interested in learning more about Sun Chemical’s Military Talent Program, visit www.orioninternational.com/sunchemical.
