For the third year in a row, Lumen Technologies has been named to the Military Times 2021 Best For Vets: Employers List, a sought-after distinction in which Military Times recognizes organizations for their programs and policies that support veterans’ post-military careers.

This editorially independent program produces a highly respected analysis of a company’s efforts to recruit, retain, and support current and former service members, military spouses, and military caregivers. The employer rankings were announced on November 4 and can be found here.

Now in its 12th year, the rankings for the Military Times Best for Vets: Employers are based on the results of a voluntary survey that captured the areas of greatest importance to transitioning service members, veterans, and their families when looking for an employer. Recruitment and employment practices, as well as retention and support programs, were given the most weight and importance in scoring and final rankings. Lumen Technologies ranked number #119 out of 161 employers who made the list.
