Sponsor: VERIZON

Verizon is one of the world’s leading providers of technology, communications, information and entertainment products and services. The company offers voice, data and video services and solutions on its award-winning networks and platforms, delivering on customers’ demand for mobility, reliable network connectivity, security and control. Verizon was the first company in the world to launch a commercial 5G mobile network with a commercially-available 5G enabled smartphone. The company’s operating structure focuses on three customer-facing areas: Consumer, Business and Media.

With 10,000+ veterans contributing their skills across our entire business, we value the exceptional leadership qualities, diverse expertise and dedication to teamwork military members bring to our team. We’re proud to work alongside them each day — and fortunate to benefit from their outstanding skills, discipline and experience. 

A Military Friendly Company

For three consecutive years, we’ve been named the #1 Military Friendly® Company, exceeding standards in key areas such as Military Spouse Friendly, Military Friendly Employer, Supplier Diversity and Military Friendly Brand. The Military Friendly® Company survey investigates and identifies the organizations whose commitment to serving the military and veteran community is comprehensive in scope and meaningful in terms of actual outcomes and impact.

 

What Military Friendly® means to our team

“Here, my military leadership and skill sets are valued, and it makes me happy when a civilian company sees my worth outside of the military. I also have the comfort of knowing that there are other service members working within the company because this helps keep the military camaraderie going. Leaving the military can be challenging, but having others who understand you and your service is a great help, especially on the hard days. Civilian life and military life are two separate worlds and it is wonderful when they work together.”

Barbara “Barbie” R., Operations – Local Manager, Air Force veteran

 

Support for veterans and developing talent

Verizon’s VALOR Employee Resource Group, made up of veterans and active duty reservists, provides ongoing support, recognition, and development of veteran employees.

Verizon has a dedicated recruitment team for every major military branch. We take veterans’ superb training, discipline, and leadership skills, and translate those qualities into careers at Verizon.

Verizon also participates in Hiring our Heroes, a nationwide corporate fellowship program to help veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses find meaningful employment opportunities
