At AIG, we are committed to hiring and supporting veterans in taking their next career step with us. We value the distinctive skills and perspectives that veterans bring to the workplace. Our objective is realized by assisting active-duty service members, veterans, and their partners through our internal recruitment procedures, as well as fostering initiatives to promote career pathways with AIG for these groups.
An example of such an initiative is our work with FourBlock, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting returning service members in their transition from military service to meaningful civilian careers.
Veterans Leadership Network Employee Resource Group
Once at AIG, veterans may find support through our Veterans Leadership Network Employee Resource Group, which aims to educate and support veterans within AIG to assist them in a successful transition to their civilian careers while fostering awareness of veterans’ initiatives worldwide. Through community outreach programs, networking, fundraising, and education, the group honors the service of men and women in arms by increasing employment opportunities within AIG, raising funds for select veterans’ organizations, and providing professional service training and assistance.
