In August 2011, Humana pledged to hire 1,000 military veterans and veterans’ spouses by late 2014. A year later, the company’s efforts are ahead of schedule. Since making its commitment, Humana has hired 677 former servicemen and servicewomen or their spouses in a wide variety of fields – from nursing to information technology to pharmacy and data analytics.
Humana recently reported on its progress in a letter to President Barack Obama. The letter details not only Humana’s efforts to hire and train military veterans and their spouses, but also the many ways Humana helps prepare veterans to re-enter the civilian workplace and support them once they get there.
