This Veterans Day, UnitedHealth Group honors our nation’s veterans and is grateful for the passion, unique skills and perspectives our veteran team members bring to their work each day.
We recruit active-duty and veteran members of the military and their spouses through programs, partnerships and events. This includes the Military Fellowship Program, which the company offers in partnership with the Department of Defense Skillbridge Program and all branches of the U.S. Military to qualifying active-duty service members transitioning to civilian life. The program, which provides career skills training and workforce reintegration, has a 93% retention rate, and 68% of fellows have become our employees.
“Our military veterans and spouses contribute their experiences, courage, resilience and commitment to serve others in our workplaces and our communities. They are a valuable and integral part of UnitedHealth Group, and we thank them for all they have done during their military service and all they do in their roles in our company each and every day.”
– Joy Fitzgerald, Senior Vice President, Chief Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Officer,
