Bayer and VETTED join forces
“We are extremely proud to partner with VETTED on this exciting new initiative that helps veterans gain the confidence they need to thrive in the business world,” said Raymond F. Kerins, Jr., Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs for Bayer. “These men and women have proudly served their country, and it is now our collective responsibility to help them take the leadership, teamwork and problem-solving skills they learned on the battlefield and translate it to the private sector.”
Kerins serves as executive sponsor of the Bayer Resource for Armed Forces Veteran/Family and Friends (BRAVE), the company’s employee resource group dedicated to providing resources to new and existing veteran employees, their family members and supporters and allies. BRAVE offers solutions to the many issues facing Bayer colleagues who are veterans or members of families who are veterans.
“Hiring veterans is not only good business; it’s the right thing to do,” Kerins said. “Partnering with VETTED furthers our mission of advocating on behalf of veterans both inside and outside our company.”
