ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
CACI International Inc (NYSE:CACI) announced today that it has been selected by Military Times, a trusted news source for the military community, as a 2014 Best for Vets Employer. CACI is ranked third, advancing from 23rd last year, on the list of 59 companies from across the nation. The rankings are based on a 90-question survey in which companies provided information about their military recruiting; company policies related to veterans, reservists, and their families; and company culture.
For the past three consecutive years, CACI has hired over 800 veterans, including more than 200 veterans with disabilities, annually. Today, veterans make up more than 20 percent of the company’s workforce. In an article on the Best for Vets rankings, Military Times writes, “Rather than just waiting for vet applicants, CACI goes out and finds them, scouring jobs sites for qualified candidates with military experience and reaching out to them directly.”
According to Dr. J.P. (Jack) London, CACI Executive Chairman and Chairman of the Board, “At CACI, helping veterans to build their careers and successfully make the transition to civilian life is an important component of our culture. CACI employs veterans at every level of our organization, from staff to senior leadership, and we pride ourselves on fostering a supportive environment for veterans throughout their careers.”
CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Ken Asbury said, “We take great pride at CACI in serving our country as well as those who have served in the military. Our commitment to veterans and their careers is a longstanding tradition within the company. We recognize that veterans have the talent, character, and dedication to duty that will help make our customers’ missions successful, safeguard our nation, and provide invaluable contributions to our workforce.”
CACI’s veteran-specific hiring efforts include its Deploying Talent – Creating Careers program, which champions the hiring of veterans with disabilities, and a partnership with The Aurora Foundation that matches college students with military experience for internship positions. The company’s enrichment programs include an employee resource group for veterans and military spouses, a mentoring program that pairs veteran employees with one another, and participation in philanthropic activities benefiting service members and their families.
CACI is proud of its veteran-related programs and recognition for its commitment to veteran hiring and retention. Most recently, the company earned the 2014 ERE Recruiting Excellence Award for “Best Military Talent Program.” CACI was also selected as a top employer for veteran hiring by Profiles in Diversity Journal and a 2014 Top Military-Friendly Employer by G.I. Jobs Magazine. In February, the company re-affirmed its commitment to National Guard and Reserve employees by signing the new Statement of Support from the Department of Defense’s Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve organization.
