Verizon Communications Inc

In 2011, Verizon began a national initiative to support, engage, attract and retain service members across the enterprise in all areas of the business. As a global leader in communication technology and with 85% of military occupations having a direct civilian counter-part at Verizon it was clear it was more than just doing the right thing for Veterans. It was a business imperative for an industry leader.

Verizon’s approach was to integrate veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses into its existing business operations and by investing inwardly by developing a dedicated team of experts.  Verizon’s Military Recruitment Team (MRT) is comprised of Veterans representing each major branch of service, including a military spouse and their focus is exclusively military engagement. Today Verizon is one of the top rated military friendly employers in corporate America.
