We're proud to report that Verizon has been ranked #3 on the list of 2021 Top Military Friendly Companies, which signifies our dedication to engaging military talent and their families, whether as employees, students, suppliers, consumers or like-minded people with like-minded missions.

Verizon is unique in the fact that they consistently rank in the top 10 in multiple categories year over year, which is typically not an easy feat to sustain. In order to achieve that recognition, your military program needs to evolve and adapt — and Verizon has done just that.

How does Verizon stack up?

At Verizon, we’re proud to work alongside nearly 10,000 veterans who contribute their talents across the business. We’re fortunate to benefit from their outstanding skills, discipline and experience.

#3 Military Friendly Company (Overall Ranking)

Our ranking as a top Military Friendly Company signifies our “all-in” commitment to the military community with this across-the-board recognition based upon our performance in at least three out of four critical areas: 

  • Recruiting, hiring and training of veterans (Military Friendly® Employers)
  • Recruiting, hiring and training of military spouses (Military Spouse Friendly Employers®)
  • Partnering with and supporting Veteran-Owned Businesses (Military Friendly® Supplier Diversity Programs)
  • Commitment to military consumer protections and having a positive brand reputation in the military community (Military Friendly® Brands)

#2 Military Friendly Brand

Military Friendly Brands are ranked on their commitment to military consumer protections and having a positive brand reputation in the military community. These organizations are known for providing the best opportunities for veterans and military spouses. 

Military Friendly Employer (Gold)

We’re proud to serve you and it shows. This year, Verizon achieved a gold ranking on the Military Friendly Employer list for our efforts in the recruitment, hiring and training of veterans. 

Military Friendly Spouse Employer (Designated)

In addition to bringing top military talent to the team, we were also recognized for our commitment to providing exceptional opportunities for veteran and military spouses. 

Military Friendly Supplier Diversity Programs (Designated)

Not only does the Military Friendly list recognize those who support veteran and military spouse employment, but it also honors those who support supplier diversity. Companies on the Military Friendly Supplier Diversity list demonstrate their commitment to the veteran community by working closely with veteran-owned business supplier programs. 

Empowering veterans to move forward in their careers.

We’re proud to serve the military community every day through our dedicated team of military recruiters, military discounts, VALOR employee resource group, Military Talent Network, Military Spouse Talent Network and additional efforts.
