Healthcare is the company heritage and they are proud to be the only security services provider founded by hospitals. HSS offers turnkey security solutions with a full array of value-added services that are innovative, cost-effective and patient-focused for today's most pressing healthcare security issues. As the industry leader, HSS has continued to diversify expertise across Healthcare Security, Aviation/Airport Security, Government Services, Security Systems Integration, Equipment Management & Sales, and Emergency Management Solutions amongst several other niche specialties that create safer environments.

The ceremony commenced with the Soldiers of the Wheat Ridge Recruiting Company presenting the colors. CPT Michael Schreckengost, Commander, Wheat Ridge Recruiting Company introduced LTC William T. Adams, Commander, Denver Recruiting Battalion. LTC Adams gave his remarks and then introduced HSS CEO Mr. Tony York. "Two hundred and forty-one years ago our Army celebrated its birth and in the last century we have cemented ourselves as a citizen volunteer Army, living and working with our communities. Partnership for Youth Success is a perfect example of the relationship our Army has with the cross-section of companies, organizations and agencies in our nation," said Adams.

After remarks by LTC Adams and Mr. York, the partnership agreement was signed to officially recognize HSS as the US Army's 594th PaYS Partner. Mr. York was very enthusiastic about the partnership stating, "When I first learned about the Partnership for Youth Success Program, I was amazed that more companies have not leapt at the opportunity to get involved. Our military men and women are proven leaders with skills and attributes that any company would want. The United States Army and HSS team members share similar traits: duty, respect, honor, integrity and personal courage. These are traits that our customers rely upon to keep their people and workplaces safe."

System Scale, an employee-owned industrial scale calibration and repair company, has signed an agreement with the US Army to be part of the Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program.

"System Scale has long been an organization steeped in military tradition with original founder Larry Polster serving in the US Marines. We're excited to both work as an advocate for the US Army as well as have access to tremendous talent as individuals are finishing service", said Chief Financial Officer Michael Sale.

The PaYS program is designed to allow members of the Army the unique opportunity to simultaneously serve their country and prepare for their future. Individuals may choose to partner with a company during the process, which allows them to learn critical skills, receive mentoring, and likely receive an opportunity at employment with the prospective company.

With a job growth of 20 percent over the past 24 months, System Scale plans on using this partnership to fill a number of roles within the company. Chief Operating Officer Joe Culp added, "As a growing company, we recognize programs like this are critical for strengthening our core values like teamwork, ethics, loyalty and integrity."

System Scale has 12 offices throughout the Midwest and South and has been an employee-owned company since 1995. "The nature of our business requires employees to lead teams independently, have excellent problem-solving skills, and to work on extremely precise equipment. There is no better natural fit for these traits than the Army," added Sale.

About System Scale
Founded in 1979, System Scale has positioned itself in the weights and measures industry as a leader in building trust, developing relationships, and providing advice to its customers. With System Scale being a 100 percent employee-owned company, our team takes great pride in knowing we not only represent ourselves but the company we own.

The US Army Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program would like to recognize and congratulate Amtrak for exceeding their military hiring initiative. Amtrak is a PaYS partner and one reason for joining the PaYS program was to attract, hire, and retain some of the most talented people in today's competitive job market. Amtrak's current President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mr. Joseph H. Boardman, a Vietnam Veteran, recognizes and understands the significance and worth that veterans bring to the workforce when they separate from the military. So much so, in 2013 Amtrak began to actively recruit thousands of veterans who were returning to civilian life. Mr. Boardman wanted veterans to join Amtrak because of their leadership, strong work ethic, and high-tech skills they gain from military service and training. "Their ability to adapt to a dynamic environment, dedication and focus to safety and experience gained while on military duty is valued by Amtrak and directly contributes to meeting our company goals," said Boardman.

In 2013, Amtrak launched a veterans hiring initiative with the goal that 25 percent of all new hires be veterans by 2015. To meet its Mr. Joseph H. Boardman, President and CEO National Railroad Passenger Corporation (Amtrak)goal, Amtrak participated in nearly 100 military hiring events and it partnered with recruiting groups that focused on veteran hiring, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Hiring our Heroes, the Wounded Warrior Project, RecruitMilitary and Army PaYS. Since joining PaYS more than 19 percent of all new Amtrak hires have been veterans. On Thursday, July 7, 2016, Amtrak held a special celebration to commemorate the successful achievement of its Military Hiring Initiative. The celebration was held at the National Guard Association of the United States in Washington, DC. with more than 300 invited guest in attendance. Amtrak's hiring managers and recruiters accepted the challenged and exceeded the standards of the challenge; the goal of 25 percent was met and surpassed as 26 percent of Amtrak's new hires since 2013 are veterans. Brigadier General Norman Green, Deputy Commanding General, 377th Theater Sustainment Command (New Orleans, LA) and Major General Errol Schwartz, Commanding General of the District of Columbia National Guard were guest speakers that delivered vocalizations from the Army Reserve and Invited guests listen as Mr. Daniel Feehan delivers his speech during Amtrak’s Veteran Hiring Initiative CelebrationNational Guard Perspectives respectfully. Mr. Daniel Feehan, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, gave an electrifying and inspirational speech while addressing the audience. "We know veterans are the most skilled Americans in the workforce. Veterans are trainable and adaptable which helps them transition into the civilian workforce." Mr. Feehan encouraged Amtrak to continue its pledge of 25 percent while recommending other companies in the audience to implement a pledge that will continue to drive down veteran unemployment. Mr. Feehan thanked Amtrak for their pledge to hire veterans. "Amtrak leads the way, they set a standard, and they achieved it," stated Mr. Feehan.

Mr. Boardman was ecstatic when it was his turn to take the podium. Mr. Boardman was tremendously humble about Amtrak's Veteran Hiring Initiative accomplishment. Mr. Boardman donned his VFW hat before he said a word to let the audience know that he too was proud to be a veteran. Mr. Boardman started and ended his speech talking about the value of teamwork and how teamwork is instilled in veterans. "If we don't have teamwork to move this country forward we will never understand it. It's the leadership culture of a company, not the leadership that moves a company. And this is why we need veterans to help us change our culture," said Boardman.

The PaYS team would like to congratulate Amtrak for its Military Hiring Initiative achievement and for being an active PaYS partner.

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) 2016 Annual Conference & Exposition was held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC from June 19-22, 2016. This annual conference is dedicated to strategic HR practices and innovations, including International HR, Talent Management, Business Management & Strategy, Employment Law & Legislation, Compensation & Benefits, and Personal & Leadership Development. SHRM annually brings together CHROs, HR Generalists, HR Managers, HR Directors, HR Associates, HR Assistants, HR Supervisors, HR Coordinators, Recruiters, HR Specialists, COOs, CEOs, and Attorneys.

About SHRM
SHRM is the world's largest HR professional society, representing 285,000 members in over 165 countries. SHRM has been the leading provider of resources serving the needs of HR professionals for almost seven decades. There are more than 575 affiliated chapters within the United States and subsidiary offices in China, India, and United Arab Emirates.

2016 SHRM Conference and Exposition
2016 Conference

The conference officially opened its doors on Sunday, June 19, 2016, at 4.p.m. with plenty of excitement in the convention center. Exhibitors, convention goers, workers, and guests were all excited to see SHRM 2016 kick off. This annual conference attracts over 15,000 attendees, including Presidents, CHROs, Vice Presidents, Directors and more. SHRM is the world's largest annual gathering of HR Professionals. There were over 600 exhibited companies in attendance at this year's conference.

The Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) team was represented at the conference by Mr. Jacinto Morales (Northeast Marketer), Mr. Damon Stinger (Senior Marketer) and Ms. Angela Byrd (PaYS Program Manager). The team's intent during the conference was to bring PaYS awareness to the hundreds of companies in attendance that are not currently participating in the PaYS program. HR Professionals often stopped by the PaYS booth and asked, "Why the Army would be at a non-recruiting event? What is the Army's purpose here?" Those questions provided great discussion opportunities that enforced both the reason and the need to have PaYS at a SHRM conference.

The SHRM conference affords an opportunity for companies to launch new products and services, build brand awareness, cultivate customer relationships, and collect high quality sales leads, which is what the PaYS team accomplished during this year's conference. On opening day, Sunday, 27 individuals visited the PaYS booth and expressed an interest to hear more about Army PaYS. Business picked up on Monday and Tuesday at the PaYS booth; there were 117 visitors on Monday and 114 on Tuesday that expressed an interest to hear more about the PaYS program. At the end of the conference, 258 HR Professionals had visited the PaYS booth and expressed an interest in hearing more about the program.

Along with the many exhibitors, there were also break-out sessions and presentations during the SHRM conference. This year's conference held three press briefings with the authors of three surveys that provided insights into the workplace topics currently in the news. The survey topics were Policies on Politics in the Workplace, 2016 Employee Benefits, and New Talent Landscape: Recruiting Difficulty and Skills Shortages.
