Learn about Comcast NBCUniversal’s strategy to hiring, retaining and developing veterans. 

As part of their effort to hire, develop, and retain military veteran talent, Comcast NBCUniversal created a Military and Veteran Affairs team in September 2015, hiring U.S. Army Brigadier General (Retired) Carol Eggert to lead the eight-person group. In her three-plus years in the role, Eggert has built an infrastructure that has allowed this international media and entertainment company to become one of America’s leading employers of veterans, military spouses, and National Guard and Reserve members, with more than 10,000 hired between 2015 and 2017 and a commitment to hire another 11,000 more by the end of 2021.

Leaning Objectives:

  • Insight to the best practices Comcast NBCUniversal has implemented for discovering the best sources of veteran talent.
  • The processes they’ve created to onboard veteran talent.
  • The vast support network that exists inside the company to develop veteran talent as leaders.
