LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) announces its wholly owned subsidiary, Humana Military Healthcare Services, is ranked 23 out of 40 for the Military Times EDGE magazine’s “Best for Vets” employers for 2012. Military Times is a weekly publication to active duty and retired members of the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps subscribers. Military Times surveyed and considered more than 1,000 major corporations and Department of Defense (DoD) contractors with a detailed questionnaire about hiring policies, recognition of veterans, and benefits for National Guard and Reservists.

The rankings were based on the following criteria:

  • Recruiting: Budget and staff dedicated to military hiring, venues where jobs are marketed to veterans, and percentage of new hires who were veterans
  • Reserve policies: Pay and benefits for National Guard and Reservists, policies to accommodate and support deployments
  • Corporate Culture: Representation of veterans on the executive team, programs for military spouses and dependents, training, involvement in military and veteran causes

“We are honored to be recognized for our policies and hiring practices by the military community,” said Tim McClain, president of Humana Government and Other Business. “Our core business is service to our DoD and Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) partners. This recognition as one of the nation’s best employers for veterans, National Guard and Reservists truly is a testimony Humana stands committed to serving those who serve us.”
