AECOM has been ranked as a Top 100 Military Friendly® Employer for 13 consecutive years and a Military Friendly® Spouse Employer for six consecutive years
GERMANTOWN, MD (Oct. 9, 2018) — AECOM, a premier, fully integrated global infrastructure firm, announced today that it has been designated as a 2019 Military Friendly® GOLD Employer and 2019 Military Friendly® Spouse Employer by VIQTORY, a veteran-owned business that connects military veterans to previously unknown civilian employment, entrepreneurship and education opportunities.
AECOM earned this recognition based on its recruiting, retention, advancement and overall commitment to veterans and military spouses. The company has a long-standing commitment to supporting those who serve as well as those who have returned to civilian life. As part of this commitment, AECOM partners with organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Project, Semper Fi Fund, American Corporate Partners, the Officers’ Association, the Career Transition Partnership, Yellow Ribbon Fund and America’s Wounded Warfighters, that assist veterans with obtaining the support they need during and after their service.
“AECOM values the diversity, knowledge and outstanding contributions military veterans and spouses make to our business and we are honored to receive this recognition,” said John Vollmer, AECOM’s president of its Management Services group. “As a company, we employ more than 9,000 veterans on projects around the world, in a multitude of professions, disciplines and markets. Our continued commitment to this community enables us to better deliver transformative outcomes for our clients and communities.”
This is AECOM’s 13th consecutive year to appear on the Top 100 Military Friendly® Employer list and its sixth year as a Military Friendly® Spouse Employer.
