In 2017, Comcast is committed to hiring 342 military veterans, active National Guard and Reserve members and military spouses in jobs across Colorado ranging from customer facing roles to senior leaders.
To celebrate our ongoing commitment to military hiring, on June 2 we hosted a signing ceremony of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Statement of Support. The signing ceremony featured several leaders from Comcast, including Comcast’s Vice President of Military and Veterans Affairs, U.S. Army Brigadier General (ret.) Carol Eggert and Rich Jennings the Senior Vice President of the Mountain West Region. Attendees also heard from local community leaders, such as Mark Lilevjen the State Chair of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, Chris Herndon of the Denver City Council for District 8 and Daniel Martinez the Director of Employment & Transition at Mt. Carmel Center of Excellence.
The ESGR program works to build a culture among employers that supports and values the employment and military service of members of the National Guard and Reserve. Comcast in Colorado is proud to be a part of this effort to recognize the critical contributions from members of the military community. We currently have more than 100 National Guard and reserve members and their family who serve as part of Comcast’s Mountain West Region team. We’re honored to be an employer of choice for these individuals.
“Comcast is a true leader in reaching out to our military community and we are committed to 10,000 military hires,” said U.S. Army Brig. Gen. (Ret.) Carol Eggert, Comcast NBCUniversal Senior Vice President of Military and Veteran Affairs. “We recognize the incredible talent our military community brings to any company – they are problem solvers, they are inventive, they come up with solutions to diverse problems in high stress situations. Working with the military community is part of our DNA. Service matters – country, community and customers.”
