Avient's newest Employee Resource Group was founded in 2022, Sustaining Engagement for Returning Veteran Employees (SERVE). SERVE strives to enable veterans to navigate and accelerate success in their career transition at Avient through support and resources focused on mentorship, community and camaraderie.
As SERVE builds momentum within Avient in 2023, the focus is on providing a platform for veterans to build a sense of support and community within Avient, and in the local communities where our associates work and live. Another priority is to establish professional mentorship connections to support members of SERVE as they navigate career growth and development.
''Avient has always been a veteran friendly company and we wanted to formalize that by bringing those who have served their countries and communities together with those who have supported them. We look forward to seeing how SERVE can contribute to our culture and benefit our company, associates and community!"
