ID.me, a leader in digital identity verification, is proud to announce a new partnership with Hiring Our Heroes, an initiative of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation. ID.me will be verifying military users for the Foundation’s military-specific digital resources.
“We're very excited to be working with Hiring Our Heroes," said Blake Hall, Co-Founder and CEO of ID.me. "Hiring Our Heroes has worked tirelessly to help our veterans and military spouses find employment after leaving the service. We are proud to be empowering an organization with such a profound impact on our military community.”
Hiring Our Heroes helps transitioning service members, veterans, and military spouses find meaningful employment and employment opportunities through hiring and networking events and a suite of digital tools.
"Our partnership with ID.me has been a true asset to the veterans, military spouses and employers we help through the Hiring Our Heroes program,” said Eric Eversole, vice president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and president of Hiring Our Heroes. “ID.me's Troop ID technology allows us to reliably verify active duty, veteran, and military dependent status to ensure that those groups are being connected with the correct resources, and it provides a heightened level of confidence for employers who want to connect with top veteran and military spouse talent."
Hiring Our Heroes will utilize ID.me’s Troop ID technology on the Hiring Our Heroes dashboard to verify the statuses of military community members who are attempting to access military-specific resources on myHOH.org. Military members who qualify for the Hiring Our Heroes military resources can sign up and verify with ID.me in real-time after clicking on the Troop ID button.
ID.me enables consumers to efficiently prove their identity online while controlling how their personal data is shared. Founded by two Army Rangers, ID.me verifies consumer identity and group status in real-time in order to allow organizations providing exclusive promotions or benefits online to do so without fear of fraud.
