CACI Veterans Hiring Program Earns Top Honors from Virginia Governor McAuliffe
CACI has earned top honors among all competing enterprise companies (1,001+ employees) for the most veterans hired in Virginia in the company’s fiscal year 2016. The Governor’s Award was presented by Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe at the 4th Annual V3 Summit in Richmond, Virginia on September 28th. This is the second consecutive year CACI has received this recognition.
The award is part of the Virginia Values Veterans (V3) program, an official Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Veterans Services program, whose mission is to educate and train employers throughout the Commonwealth on the value of Virginia’s veterans, and to help employers connect with military men and women to maximize the productivity of their workforce.
CACI hired a record 1,844 veterans in its fiscal year 2016, 439 of whom are Virginia residents or working in Virginia. Veterans make up 30 percent of CACI’s current workforce, and the company’s military hiring and development efforts are continually recognized as a triple win: providing veterans with rewarding careers while benefiting the company and its customers with their proven leadership, values, and work ethic.
At CACI, employing veterans is a priority, and the company takes great pride in the exceptional talent, dedication, and good character they bring to customer missions. To further advance its industry-recognized program for recruiting, hiring, and supporting veterans, CACI also recently welcomed Major General (Retired) Gary S. Patton as Vice President of Veterans Outreach. In this role, he leads a dedicated Veteran Support and Recruiting Office and Military Veteran Advocacy team, which works one-on-one with military veterans and their spouses as they transition into civilian careers.
CACI respects military veterans for their continuing commitment to America’s freedoms, and shares their commitment to acting with ethics and integrity – values that have also defined CACI’s culture and driven its success for 55 years.
CACI offers veterans an opportunity to continue their national service on project teams supporting national security and government modernization. CACI is a Fortune World’s Most Admired Company and was voted a Washington Post Top Workplace by thousands of DC-area CACI employees responding to an independent survey on the company’s work environment.
