DRG Hosts Service to Civilian Program
DRG hosted a group of veterans on Oct. 26 at the company’s first Service to Civilian event, which focused on job readiness, life after service, interview prep, dress for success and more.
DRG corporate recruiters and representatives from the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission and OU WorkSooner were on hand to provide one-on-one advice and additional guidance. In addition, participants were encouraged to peruse and take home gently worn dress for success clothing options.
“Veterans sacrifice so much for our country. It is important we give back to them,” said Lacy Blanton, director of Professional Services and Recruiting for DRG. “One way we can do that is to support them and supply them with the best information to help them further their career.”
Supporting the warfighter is important to Oklahoma City-based DRG, a leading global training service contractor specializing in the aerospace defense industry. Nearly 60% of DRG’s more than 850 employees are veterans.
The program was held at the Oklahoma Fidelity Bank Club in the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.
“The feedback has been very positive,” Blanton said. “I expect the next one to be even better!”
DRG plans to have two Service to Civilian events a year.
