The Postal Service is a national leader in employing veterans, according to a new survey by U.S. Veterans Magazine.
The publication polls government agencies, educational institutions and hundreds of Fortune 1000 companies for the annual survey.
For the second consecutive year, USPS ranked among top veteran-friendly companies. The Postal Service also ranked among the top government agencies for hiring veterans.
“The Postal Service is proud to be a national leader in employing veterans,” said PMG Megan J. Brennan. “Throughout our organization, veterans perform roles critical to the future of the Postal Service. We know that when we hire veterans, they have been trained to be highly organized, responsible and to deliver results.”
Approximately 113,000 Postal Service employees, or about 18 percent of the USPS workforce, are veterans.
The Postal Service has increased the number of veterans hired each year through partnerships with several veteran-friendly organizations and by participating in job fairs that target veterans.
U.S. Veterans Magazine, a quarterly publication, serves military readers across the nation.
