CACI Announces Record Hiring Year for Veterans
Nearly 900 Qualified Servicemen and Women Joined Company in 2012 Fiscal Year
ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CACI International Inc (NYSE:CACI) announced today that it hired a record number of veterans in its last fiscal year. Nearly 900 former servicemen and women — including more than 200 veterans with disabilities — joined the company in Fiscal Year 2012. They now are part of the 22 percent of CACI's nearly 15,000 employees who are veterans, of whom almost 1,000 were hired through the company's award-winning Deploying Talent — Creating Careers program, which recruits talented veterans with disabilities.
CACI's veteran-specific recruiting efforts are successful because of a company-wide commitment to actively recruit, hire, and mentor veterans. In turn, the veterans in CACI's workforce enjoy meaningful careers while offering the company's clients insight honed by their dedicated military service, high sense of ethics, and strong commitment to national priorities. A high percentage of the veterans CACI hires hold security clearances, further qualifying them to support customer programs that are vital to national security.
CACI has also implemented tailored programs to assist veterans in successfully transitioning back into civilian life and promote their career growth. These include Hire a Vet Today!, which encourages employees to actively get involved in events and activities related to recruiting veterans, and a mentoring program which pairs employees who are veterans with service members who are just re-entering the workforce.
CACI's veteran recruiting and retention programs have resulted in top honors for the company. In 2012, CACI was named one of CivilianJobs.com's "Most Valuable Employers" for the military, a top "Military-Friendly Employer" by the online publication G.I. Jobs for the fourth year in a row, and a "Best for Vets" employer by the Military Times EDGE online publication.
CACI Chief Operating Officer and President of U.S. Operations John Mengucci said, "CACI has implemented career development initiatives that support and fulfill the needs of veterans. This includes an internal mentoring program for vets and advanced education to assist them in assimilating into their new jobs."
According to Dan Allen, CACI President and Chief Executive Officer, "We feel that enabling veterans to build their careers is more than a professional obligation. It's an important component of what CACI has dedicated itself to throughout our history. These men and women have already given so much to keep our nation safe — now it's our turn to provide an opportunity for them to succeed as they support our customers."
