Vanguard embraces veterans
Vanguard was also recognized as a Top Veteran-Friendly Company in 2019 by U.S. Veterans Magazine (USVM). The magazine’s annual list evaluates a company’s policies, practices, and career recruitment efforts with respect to veterans. Its mission includes finding employment and other opportunities for transitioning service members, disabled veterans, spouses of veterans, and veteran business owners.
USVM selected about 200 names after polling hundreds of companies, including many on the Fortune 1000.
This year’s evaluation recognized excellence in three focus areas:
- Sponsorship of veteran career events.
- Career opportunities.
- Success in seeking, hiring, and/or retaining veteran candidates.
“Together we work to establish a strong crew network of service-minded military veterans and friends,” said Sean Gardner, senior manager in Global Risk & Security and a member of the VetsConnect leadership team. “Our objective is to enrich the sense of community for crew with past military service and all others interested by providing engaging ways to connect, assisting new veteran crew to Vanguard, and reflecting the esprit de corps of our military heritage.”
