Leonardo DRS Deemed “Best for Vets” Employer

September 22, 2020

Military Times has unveiled its annual “Best for Vets: Employers” list for 2020, naming Leonardo DRS as one of 144 companies that go above and beyond to recruit and retain former members of the United Stated Armed Forces.

The list, which includes companies in industries such as transportation, education, and hospitality, is compiled based on criteria consisting of interviews with veterans, input from veterans’ advocates and subject matter experts, and years of Military Times research. Companies that submitted themselves for the list were subjected to an extensive survey requesting detailed information on their recruitment and retention policies for veterans, support of military spouses, and more.

In its 11th year, the “Best for Vets: Employers” list has become the “most trusted resource for transitioning veterans and a coveted honor for employers across the country,” says Andrew Tilghman, executive editor at Military Times.

“Leonardo DRS takes great pride in being recognized by Military Times and to be included in the “Best for Vets Employers” list for 2020,” said Tami Gesiskie, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at Leonardo DRS. “Providing support to the men and women in uniform is what we do, and our employee veterans speak directly to the heart of this mission. Their background and skillset enrich our business and help build an inclusive workforce that promotes success. Veterans have been an integral part of DRS since the company’s inception in 1969, and we are very fortunate to have so many veterans be part of our team.”
