HOUSTON, Dec. 13, 2017 — KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) announced today that its “Camo to KBR: Veterans Recruitment and Training Program” has received a prestigious Workforce Development Award from the Construction Users Roundtable (CURT), a national organization comprised of leaders in the construction industry.
According to CURT, the award recognizes companies for “extraordinary, exemplary and innovative recruitment, training and education programs, which encourage people to pursue careers in construction.”
Camo to KBR is a comprehensive initiative to hire, train, develop and transition military service members into the next generation of craft professionals and create leaders for KBR and the overall construction industry. The initiative is one approach to address craft workforce shortage issues and develop strong military talent into future supervisors and leaders in our industry.
Camo to KBR is comprised of several initiatives including on-site project recruitment and training of veterans, partnerships with veterans organizations like NextOp in Houston, and partnering with the National Center for Construction Education & Research (NCCER) on their military credentialing reciprocity program. KBR also collaborated with Ft. Polk base command, Soldier For Life, and Central Louisiana Technical College to create a pipefitting training program for active duty soldiers who are transitioning to civilian life.
“KBR is proud to help soldiers build on the foundation of their military training and provide a vehicle for veterans to translate their skills into the craft professions as they transition to civilian life,” said Farhan Mujib, KBR President, Engineering & Construction Americas. “Our veterans represent an extraordinary pool of talent and discipline that the craft industry needs.”
“KBR has a long history of supporting our armed forces in the field and at home and it is our honor to continue that legacy,” Mujib said.
