Comcast NBCUniversal Named Best for Vets Employer
We are proud to announce Comcast NBCUniversal has been recognized as the nation’s No. 1 telecommunications company and No. 3 overall employer in a “Best for Vets” ranking by Military Times, the premier news source for service members and their families.
In its 13th year, Military Times’ “Best for Vets: Employers” list is an annual ranking of the nation's top companies and organizations that prioritize hiring, retaining, and supporting current and former service members, military spouses, and military caregivers. This is the seventh consecutive year Comcast NBCUniversal has been recognized by Military Times on this list.
“We are honored that Military Times has recognized our long-standing commitment to the military community,” said Brigadier General (Ret.) Carol Eggert, Senior Vice President of Military and Veteran Affairs at Comcast NBCUniversal.
At Comcast NBCUniversal, we believe service matters, and being named the top telecommunications company on this prestigious list is a testament to our continued efforts to provide an empowering and inclusive workplace for our military-connected teammates and support to military communities.
In addition to the latest “Best for Vets” ranking, Comcast NBCUniversal has been recognized by Victory Media as a Top 10 Military Friendly® Brand, Top 10 Military Friendly® Supplier Diversity Program, Gold-level Military Friendly® Employer, and Military Spouse Friendly® Employer.
The company was also recently named a 5 Star Employer by VETS Indexes and a top company for veterans by DiversityInc.
“One of the best ways to help veterans is to connect them with fulfilling and meaningful careers at organizations where they can develop their skills and grow into senior leaders,” said George Altman, Managing Director of VETS Indexes.
As a VETS Indexes 5 Star Employer, Comcast Cable has proven to be a welcoming home for veterans and military spouses who want to start the next phases in their lives.
For years, Comcast NBCUniversal has made recruiting and hiring military community members a priority. Since 2015, the company has hired more than 19,400 veterans, service members, and military spouses. These military-connected teammates are offered continuous professional development opportunities and several unique benefits, including a Veteran-focused Employee Resource Group, a dedicated Military Concierge service, Guard and Reserve Leave, Differential Pay, an Active Duty Health Benefits Plan, and Military Spouse Transfer Assistance.
“We value the extensive leadership experience and unique skillset that our military-trained teammates bring to the company,” said Sean Casey, Senior Director of Communications for Military and Veteran Affairs. “That is why we are always looking towards the military talent market as an optimal place to get high-quality job candidates.”
