Comcast Corporation today announced that Comcast and NBCUniversal have hired 2,000 veterans since January 2012. The company achieved its veteran hiring commitment almost two years ahead of schedule as part of its partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s “Hiring Our Heroes” initiative.

Hiring Our Heroes” launched in March 2011 as a nationwide initiative to help veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses find meaningful employment. Comcast and NBCUniversal are proud supporters of the program and recognize the value in employing, supporting and promoting veterans in the workforce. Along with 1,200 companies of all sizes, Comcast and NBCUniversal have been greatly involved since the program’s inception.

Since January 2012, Comcast and NBCUniversal have hired thousands veterans to work in a variety of positions at all levels, including network engineering, technology, operations, theme parks and resorts, programming, customer service, marketing, human resources, and other careers. With their public commitment and active support in promoting veterans in the workforce, Comcast and NBCUniversal have inspired other employers to follow suit.

In celebration of Veterans Appreciation Week, Comcast’s Xfinity On Demand will salute our veterans by featuring military and veteran’s content on TV and online at www.Xfinity.com/TV through November 11. Additionally, the “Hire a Veteran On Demand” initiative will continue to be available to veterans seeking job opportunities with Comcast and other employers, and interviews focused on veterans resources and support services will be broadcast on Comcast Newsmakers through the end of the month as well as available for viewing on Xfinity On Demand or www.ComcastNewsmakers.com.
