Strengthening Bonds: TCM’s Dedication to Veterans and Their Families
In 1980, John Danieli (a former Marine Corps programmer and Vietnam War veteran) created a company focused on technology staffing and workforce solutions to meet the unique needs and demanding expectations of Fortune 100, Fortune 500, Fortune 1000, small and medium-sized commercial and public-sector clients across the US. John developed his passion for technology while developing war games at the Pentagon and then through extensive training in computer programming at IBM.
Today, TCM is certified as a Veteran-Owned Business (VOB) by the National Veteran Business Development Council (NVBDC) and as a Veteran-Owned Business Enterprise (VBE) by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Supplier Diversity Office. The company takes pride in being veteran-owned and is committed to serving fellow veterans and their families in the IT industry.
The Importance of Supporting Veterans
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are over 18 million veterans in the United States, many of whom face significant challenges when transitioning back to civilian life. These challenges include finding employment, adjusting to the civilian culture, and dealing with physical and mental health issues. TCM recognizes the importance of addressing these challenges and is committed to providing veterans with the support they need to succeed.
Since 2015, TCM has deployed over 500 veterans on assignments across the country, lasting an average of ten months. The company works diligently to understand veterans’ career goals, core skills, and strengths and aligns them with job opportunities that fit across its diverse client base. TCM leverages innovative search and social networking technology and has built a robust referral network to expand its veteran candidate base continually.
Veteran Employment Statistics
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate for veterans was 6.6% in 2020, compared to 6.0% for non-veterans. TCM is committed to reducing this disparity by providing veterans access to high-quality IT industry job opportunities. The company works with veterans to identify their skills and match them with positions that suit their experience and expertise. TCM has a track record of placing veterans in various IT roles, including software development, cybersecurity, and project management.
Backing Military Families: TCM & Toys for Tots
TCM is a proud supporter of the Toys for Tots program, a charitable initiative run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve that distributes toys to children from less fortunate families during the holiday season. This involvement reflects TCM’s commitment to giving back to the community and upholding its veteran-owned heritage values. By participating in Toys for Tots, TCM brings joy to needy children and fosters a strong sense of community spirit and social responsibility. With over 1.3 million active-duty service members facing unique challenges when deployed, TCM recognizes military families’ sacrifices and is committed to supporting them. The company has partnered with organizations like the Fisher House Foundation and the Military Family Advisory Network to aid military families.
TCM is proud to be a certified Veteran-Owned Business and a dedicated contributor to the veteran community. By providing veterans with job opportunities, mental health support, and assistance for their families, TCM has built a strong reputation as a company that cares about its community and is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of veterans. As TCM continues to grow and serve clients across the United States, its commitment to supporting veterans remains unwavering.
