Apria honors vets with ribbon campaign

Thursday, November 10, 2016

LAKE FOREST, Calif. - Apria Healthcare is encouraging its employees to participate in November’s “Yellow Ribbon Campaign” by placing a yellow ribbon, a symbol of remembrance and awareness, outside their cubicle, homes and facilities to show their support for service members. Apria has a long history of helping veterans transition back into the workforce through company-wide and nationwide initiatives. In 2016, the provider initiated a Facebook “friending” campaign and created Veteran Connect, an internal platform for Apria veterans and employees to network and share experiences with one another. It also joined the Department of Defense Military Spouse Employment Partnership, an employment and career program that connects military spouses with employers and was awarded the Patriot Award from the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Committee (ESGR), for supporting veterans who have served in the National Guard or Reserve.
