Plano, TX – March 05, 2014 – NTT DATA, Inc., a leading IT services provider, today announced it has signed an agreement with the U.S. Army to partner in the Army Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) program during an official ceremony held today at the Dallas Recruiting Battalion in Irving, Texas.
The PaYS Program is a public-private partnership between the Army and U.S. corporations that provides talented young recruits with an opportunity to serve their country while being trained for a future outside the military. The Army pre-qualifies and trains honorably discharged veterans for a variety of careers, and organizations like NTT DATA benefit by hiring skilled employees with the technical and leadership abilities that only the Army can provide.
“The Army instills the same values in the men and women serving today that we strive to maintain to succeed in our business,” said John McCain, president and CEO of NTT DATA, Inc. “Through the PaYS program, we are proud to partner with the Army to sponsor these bright young dedicated individuals as they get an education and prepare for a long and successful career in the private sector.”
“The PaYS Program is an integral part of our recruiting strategy as it introduces highly motivated and exceptional candidates to our organization,” said Dean Williams, executive vice president of human capital at NTT DATA, Inc. “Hiring qualified veterans is the perfect fit for NTT DATA as they have the work ethic and team-oriented values to help our customers succeed.”
“The Army is attracting, training, and deploying talented young people who want to serve their country, but who also want to have a gratifying career after their service,” said Joel Crosby, Jr., Northeast Marketing Analyst for Army PaYS. “We are excited to partner with NTT DATA as they have a strong track record for hiring top talent.”

About Army PaYS
Army PaYS is a strategic partnership program between the Army and a cross section of U.S. corporations and public sector agencies. The program was developed to help the Army attract, train and deploy talented young people who want to serve their country, but also want to help secure their future success once their Army service is complete. Employers that sign as corporate partners in PaYS agree to consider appropriately qualified soldiers leaving Army service for positions at those companies. Under terms of the agreement between USAREC and its PaYS partners, enlistees interested in gaining specific job training and qualifications will receive that training while in the U.S. Army. Participation by the company, soldier and Army is secured with an agreement that gives the Soldier priority consideration in the employment process. However, the company reserves the right to determine whether to ultimately hire the PaYS soldier. For more information, visit http://armypays.com.
