Jennifer Johnson, Human Resources Director at Medtronic affirms: "As a veteran ally, I appreciate veterans' service and how they bring these experiences into their leadership. I love seeing veterans adapt in the Medtronic culture, bring their whole self to work, and accelerate quickly in our organization."
