Melville, New York-based Canon Solutions America, a wholly owned subsidiary and the sales arm of Tokyo-based Canon Global, recently hosted its first Veterans Outreach Open House. 

The event, which took place at Canon Solutions America’s Park Avenue, New York office, offered veterans the opportunity to learn from executives and speak directly to human resources representatives about potential employment with the company. The event was held in conjunction with Wounded Warrior Project, a veterans service organization.

Joining Wounded Warrior Project at the event were several other leading organizations supporting veteran employment and assisting in the recruitment process. Each of those organizations sent representatives to help support the open house event and provide valued experience to helping veterans find rewarding careers after serving our country.

“Unemployment and underemployment are big challenges for today’s generation of veterans,” says Cammie Coker, employment specialist for Wounded Warrior Project. “Canon Solutions America has shown its commitment to helping solve this problem by bringing veterans in and connecting them with career prospects. I am proud to be a part of the first open house event, and am looking forward to working closely with Canon Solutions America on future opportunities.”

Attendees to the event were given a tour of the company’s showroom and introduced to the wide scope of industries which the company serves. Following the tour each veteran was able to meet one-on-one with Canon Solutions America HR.

The company already employs about 300 veterans.

“These veterans have earned the opportunity to meet and hear from some of Canon Solutions America’s top leaders as they prepare for a new path and a new career,” says Anthony Cannon II, a veteran himself and human resources talent acquisition specialist with Canon Solutions America. “It was an honor and privilege to spend the day with our valued veteran guests and be a part of their journey to finding a successful career post-service. We are fully committed to providing veterans opportunities like our open house event that can help shape and form a new career path.”

Canon Solutions America says it plans to expand its inaugural open house event to other locations across the country in the coming months.
