CACI International has won the 2013 Award of Excellence by Profiles in Diversity Journal for its practice to further diversity in recruitment.
This is the second consecutive year that CACI received an Innovations in Diversity award, which intends to acknowledge corporate efforts to hire and assimilate veterans into the workforce, CACI said Wednesday.
Diversity Journal said CACI had increased its recruitment of veterans with disabilities by 170 percent over the last five years.
The company launched the Deploying Talent – Creating Careers program to hire former military servicemen and partnered with The Aurora Foundation to recruit student interns with military experience.
CACI also maintains employee resource groups for veterans and military spouses, holds seminars on veteran issues and participates in philanthropic activities for the families of soldiers.
The groups work to help employees engage with mentors and professionals for leadership skills development and community volunteerism.
