AECOM announced that it is ranked number two nationwide in America on VIQTORY’s list of Military Friendly® Supplier Diversity Programs. Additionally, AECOM is recognized as a Military Friendly® Employer and Military Friendly® Brand.

These combined rankings elevate the firm’s status to a Military Friendly® Company.

“We’re honored to receive this recognition from VIQTORY and will continue demonstrating our steadfast commitment to our military employees, families, and teaming partners,” said Karl Jensen, Executive Vice President of AECOM’s national governments business. Karl served more than 20 years in the U.S. Navy and Navy Reserve as a naval aviator and aerospace engineering duty officer.

“We deeply value the outstanding contributions the military community brings to our infrastructure work, including the hundreds of veterans and reservists that we call our colleagues as well as the veteran-owned businesses that participate in our industry-leading supplier diversity program.”

Measuring an organization's commitment to U.S. military community

Military Friendly® is the standard that measures an organization’s commitment, effort, and success in creating sustainable and meaningful benefits for the U.S. military community.

These prestigious lists provide a comprehensive guide for veterans and their families using data sourced through continuously improved methodology, criteria, and weightings developed with the help of an independent research firm and proprietary survey information from participating organizations.

“The Military Friendly® lists represent a growing number of organizations who are taking a holistic approach on engagement, retention, and support in the military and service member community,” said Kayla Lopez, Director of Military Partnerships, VIQTORY. “Their dedication, persistence, and continued evolution is what sets these companies apart. A holistic approach is what creates scalability and leads to success.”

Assisting veterans during and after military service

As a major contractor to the U.S. Federal Government, AECOM works with government agencies to deliver innovative solutions across the project lifecycle that help achieve mission success.

The company has a longstanding commitment to those who serve as well as those who have returned to civilian life, partnering with organizations that assist veterans both during and after their military service.
