Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Standing Side by Side with Our Military Members, Spouses, and Partners
Whether they’re veterans, National Guard members, reservists, or military spouses members of the military community are vital to the Comcast NBCUniversal family and we are proud to support them.
As part of our military commitment, Comcast NBCUniversal created an Office of Military and Veteran Affairs in 2015. This team, led by retired Brigadier General Carol Eggert, is focused on how we achieve our hiring goals, as we provide our military customers with benefits that meet the unique needs of their lifestyle.
Recognizing the value that military members and their families bring to our workforce is a longstanding tradition within our company. Many of our senior executives are veterans, including Comcast Cable’s Chief Executive Officer and two members of our Board of Directors. We also benefit from having veteran-owned businesses in our supply chain and are proud of our partnerships with veteran-serving nonprofit organizations.
Between 2012 and 2014, Comcast NBCUniversal hired approximately 3,500 veterans in various positions across the company, exceeding our initial military hiring goals set as part of our ongoing partnership with The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s “Hiring Our Heroes” initiative.
In 2015, we made an additional 2,400 military hires, representing a big step towards reaching our stated goal of 10,000 military hires between 2015 and YE 2017.
