Ford Motor Company’s commitment to veterans recently earned it silver-level certification as a veteran-friendly employer. The designation from the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency recognizes the company’s commitment to recruiting, hiring, training and maintaining veteran talent.
 
The veteran-friendly employer program helps veterans more easily identify employers committed to hiring and supporting former service members. Ford was recognized for meeting or exceeding its veteran hiring goals and implementing internship and on-the-job training programs for veterans. Additionally, the company’s Veterans Network Group helps veterans with the transition into corporate culture.

​​“Ford has a long history of supporting our military, and I am pleased and proud that this Michigan company is a certified member of MVAA’s Veteran-Friendly Employer Program,” said Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency Director James Robert Redford. “As a silver-level employer, Ford has shown great commitment to hiring and training the veteran talent our state has to offer. Our veterans possess valuable skills and abilities that make them unique and excellent candidates for careers at Ford and at the more than 100 other companies participating in the program. ”
