The Top Employers For Veterans
April 23, 2012
Booz Allen Hamilton is the top employer for veterans, according to new market data collected by Payscale.com. That means the Virginia-based defense and civil contractor employs the greatest number of former military service members in skilled labor positions.
Booz Allen Hamilton, commonly known as Booz Allen, provides consulting services to the U.S. government in defense, intelligence, and civil markets, and to major corporations, institutions, and not-for-profit organizations. Nearly one third of the company's 25,000 employees have military backgrounds.
Betty Thompson, senior vice president and chief personnel officer at Booz Allen, says the company is proud to be the top employer for veterans. "We have maintained a deep and long commitment to the nation's military community that began with our work assisting the U.S. Navy at the dawn of World War II and continues today with the Military Health System, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and our many engagements with the Department of Defense and armed services," she says. "U.S. veterans and wounded warriors made personal sacrifices to serve our country, and it is in that same spirit of service that Booz Allen has pledged its commitment to these heroic men and women."
