Clincierge is proud to announce our partnership with the Hiring our Heroes (HOH) organization. Founded in 2011, HOH connects United States military service personnel, veterans, spouses, and caregivers to employers across the country.

Highly skilled individuals are paired with civilian employers searching for candidates with specific skill sets through the HOH Corporate Fellowship Program. Over the course of six to twelve weeks, fellows are immersed in the company culture and provided with hands-on experience, with the potential for full-time employment at the completion of the fellowship.

Valerie Cloutier, Legal Assistant in our Compliance Department, first presented the idea of a partnership between Clincierge and Hiring Our Heroes. A military spouse herself, she understands the many challenges associated with frequent relocations and how these moves affect long-term employment opportunities. She explains how the HOH Fellowship Program is mutually beneficial for the company and the employee:

“As a military spouse of 20 years, I know firsthand the challenges of moving every two to three years and finding new employment each time while setting up your family in a new city. The Hiring Our Heroes Program is so important because it offers transitioning service members and military spouses real-life world experience, mentorship, and the opportunity to show their worth. Many of these individuals may have been overlooked for similar positions in the past. Employers who partner with HOH also benefit, as they gain access to high caliber applicants with specialized qualifications and experience beyond typical job applicants.”

Our inaugural fellow is Sandra Stevens, a veteran of the United States Army. Sandra comes to Clincierge from Fort Carson, Colorado, and began her fellowship on May 9, 2022. Sandra will be working in our Compliance Department as a Quality Assurance Coordinator. Below, Sandra shares why she chose to join Clincierge.

Clincierge understands the many challenges associated with relocating patients within the United States and around the world to participate in clinical trials. Our top priority is to procure safe housing accommodations with appropriate amenities for the patient and their caregiver or family. We also consider the logistics involved in moving their possessions, managing the necessary paperwork for long-term stays, securing educational opportunities for siblings, and any additional unique needs that may arise.

Through our partnership with Hiring Our Heroes, we seek to better understand the challenges facing US military service personnel, veterans, spouses, and caregivers through relocation and acclimation to life in the civilian world. The mission of the HOH organization fits seamlessly with that of Clincierge, and we look forward to the many mutual benefits this new partnership will provide.
