In 2012, through Employee Networks around the world, more than 60,000 employees connected and participated in networking opportunities, mentoring programs, information forums and various volunteer events. Many members also served in leadership roles and led initiatives for recruiting, client development and community partnerships.

Military recruitment & retention
We assist military employees through a variety of programs including the Military Support & Assistance Group, an Employee Network that connects military service members, veterans and their families to networking, mentoring and information forums in 26 chapters across the United States. In 2012, we created the Military Affairs Advisory Group to establish a cohesive enterprise approach focused on supporting active military, reservists, National Guard and veterans. Within the company’s Global Corporate Social Responsibility team, this group supports military service members, their families, and transitioning veterans through philanthropy, hiring, customer service and employee engagement.
