AT&T Enhances Efforts to Attract, Retain More Military Veterans

AT&T (No. 4 on the DivesityInc Top 50 Companies list) is enhancing its efforts to help veterans moving from a military to civilian career. AT&T has hired over 13,000 veterans since 2013. And AT&T is bolstering military recruiting and retention plans with a goal to hire a total of 20,000 veterans by 2020. About 65% of AT&T veteran new hires go into technician roles.


“Veterans have a unique combination of self-discipline, teamwork and skills they developed through military service,” said Rick Wilson, director-diversity & inclusion, AT&T. “These allow for a successful transition to a career with AT&T, where many of those values are part of our culture. We’ve made great strides in veteran recruiting. Now we’re growing efforts to retain the veterans hired.”

The AT&T Veterans employee resource group (ERG) this spring is launching a pilot program to support the transition of new hires into AT&T. The program aims to familiarize vets with AT&T culture and its similarities and differences from the military culture. Pilot topics will range from chain-of-command to awards and recognition.

The AT&T Veterans ERG, which is more than 30 years old, serves over 10,000 veterans and their families. This group creates an instant community for vets joining the company by involving them in outreach and philanthropy. Members have opportunities to interact with senior AT&T leaders and connect across business units.
