We salute the 1,100 brave teammates who took the oath to selflessly serve our Country. We are grateful for your service and sacrifice.
Coca-Cola Consolidated is proud to support our military service members and their families. In alignment with this commitment, we’re pleased to announce a new partnership with Hiring Our Heroes allowing for deeper relationships with the military community across our territory.
“Coke Consolidated has a long-standing commitment to support and employ members of the military community,” said Christine Motherwell, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at Coca-Cola Consolidated. “Building on this commitment, we took steps in 2023 to create a team dedicated to establishing and growing our first ever veteran and military spouse recruitment and retention initiative. This partnership with Hiring Our Heroes will help us welcome even more service members, veterans, and military spouses as Coke Consolidated teammates.”
This partnership with Hiring our Heroes will enable our Talent Acquisition team and Coca-Cola Consolidated teammates to meet and interact with transitioning service member, veteran, and military spouse job seekers at hiring events across our territory and on military bases.
We will also take part in Skillbridge internship programs through Hiring Our Heroes. The Department of Defense Skillbridge program lets transitioning military members acquire civilian work experience through an internship with employers in the final six months of service.
“Earlier this year, we launched a Veterans Resource Group (VRG) to connect military-affiliated teammates, like myself, and allies from across the company offering opportunities to become more engaged and developed personally and professionally,” said Steve Funderburke, Vice President of Manufacturing and Executive Sponsor of the VRG at Coke Consolidated. “We are excited to support our Military Initiatives team and participate in events and engagement opportunities available through the Hiring our Heroes partnership.”
