Human capital Veterans
Proudly working with veterans
The rigor, teamwork and leadership exemplified by veterans comprise a great skill set for our business. That’s why we are proud of the veterans we can hire through programs such as our Military Talent Network, which is specifically targeted to recruit veterans and access their diverse skill sets. In 2019, we hired 922 veterans. We also support military spouses with career guidance by connecting them to a military-spouse recruiter.
We’re proud to have more than 9,700 veterans serving our customers. Our military leave policy allows our service members to continue serving their country when needed. When V Teamers are called up to active duty, we bridge the gap between military pay and Verizon pay to care for their family members and their financial and healthcare needs. We were proud to receive multiple recognitions for our work with veterans from organizations such as Best for Vets and Military Friendly™. See the full list of awards.
Hiring Our Heroes
We sponsor the Hiring Our Heroes Corporate Fellowship program, a U.S. Chamber of Commerce initiative that matches service members with participating companies to smooth the transition from military to civilian careers and assist military spouses with meaningful opportunities. In 2019, we sponsored transitioning summits at key military installations, sponsored sports expos and participated in numerous hiring events. We are also a Chairman’s Circle Member of the Chamber’s Veteran Employment Advisory Council. Learn more about our work with veterans and veteran organizations.
