The programme allows LafargeHolcim employees to work alongside Army recruiters and ROTC programmes to mentor future soldiers and professionals. PaYS partners guarantee job interviews and possible employment to future soldiers and ROTC cadets after their time in the Army.

“LafargeHolcim is grateful for our veterans’ service and proud to join this programme,” said Denise Devereaux, Vice President, Organisation and Human Resources for LafargeHolcim in the US. “Our talented workforce is made stronger with our veteran employees. A workforce recruiting pathway focused on military veterans is a natural fit for our business due to the skills and values that align with LafargeHolcim, including teamwork, performance, accountability, and a focus on health and safety.”

The organisation also works with individuals on resume improvements, interview advice, and building strong qualifications. While serving, soldiers learn technical skills that can be translated to many industries, including within the building materials industry.The PaYS programme supports the Army’s mission to recruit high quality men and women, while offering an opportunity to prepare for their future after service.

"I want to personally thank the LafargeHolcim company for partnering with the US Army and the PaYS programme,” said Lt. Col. Derek R. Keller, US Army. “This partnership will contribute to helping take care of today's heroes, the American Soldier, after they serve this great country of ours."

In 2018, LafargeHolcim will launch a Buddy-to-Buddy programme for newly hired veterans, as well as a Manager’s Guide to help build and sustain a veteran-informed culture.
