They bravely served their country and today they serve Enterprise Holdings’ customers around the world, guided by the same principles learned during their time in the service: loyalty, integrity and collaboration. Today, join us in saying thank you to the more than 10 percent of Enterprise Holdings’ U.S. workforce who selflessly served in the military.
We are grateful for your commitment to your country, the sacrifices of your family and the leadership you provide to your teams today. Scroll through to meet several Enterprise veterans and read about the lessons they learned during their time of service.
My military experience helps me maintain my attention to detail, customer service and most importantly: my integrity. In the military, leaders seek out those able to demonstrate all core values. At Enterprise, I see this, too.
The military taught me to always be kind and have patience. I never know what someone is going through. Some customers can be challenging, but patience is a virtue and sometimes all we must do is be a listening ear.
Erin A. United States Army Reserves, Captain Branched Quartermaster Group Truck Rental Manager,Baltimore
My military experience has afforded me the skill set to lead/manage on a large scale as well as build a resilient team foundation in any facet, whether civilian or military.
A lesson that resonates with me is to never ask your employees or teammates to do something that you would not or cannot do. Always lead from the front as an example of what “right looks like”.
Adam B. United States Army, Infantryman Assistant Branch Manager,New Mexico
My military experience developed my leadership skills. I had the great honor to lead all types of people. My Enterprise branch services mainly a military base, so my experience with the Army rank structure and daily operations has helped us better serve our uniformed customers.
Self-discipline learned in the army is a huge part of my tool bag, whether I’m using it on dress code or ethical sales and operations.
Today we reflect on our founder Jack Taylor, and his experience more than 75 years ago serving as a fighter pilot in the U.S. Navy during World War II. His bravery and experience left a profound impact on him – so much so that he named his company after an aircraft carrier on which he proudly served, the USS Enterprise. Enterprise continues to embody the values Jack learned during his time of service: integrity, honest work, team spirit and simply doing the right thing. Though the service and experience of your uniformed colleagues might look different today than it did for Jack, the dedication and sacrifice remain the same.
On Veteran's Day, we express our gratitude for our military veterans – the more than 13,000 employees who have selflessly served their country, as well as over 2,000 military spouse employees supporting their family members in the service.
