U.S. Veterans Magazine has recognized Perspecta in the publication’s list of veteran-friendly companies for 2018.

The company said Wednesday that veterans and reservists account for more than 20 percent of its current workforce.

Perspecta debuted in June after its separation from DXC Technology and subsequent merger with Vencore and KeyPoint Government Solutions.

“We actively seek out members of the military community because their unique skills, leadership and most of all alignment to those principles make them an invaluable addition to our team,” said Mac Curtis, Perspecta president and CEO and a four-time Wash 100 awardee.

USVM polls Fortune 1000 businesses each year for the Best of the Best Top Veteran-Friendly Companies list.

The publication selects entities who have demonstrated efforts to provide employment, business and supplier opportunities to veterans, transitioning service members, disabled veterans, spouses and veteran business owners.
