Cognosante has been named a 2020 Top Ten Best Companies for Veterans by Monster and Military.com. The list, compiled annually, recognizes the best companies for recruiting, onboarding, and retaining military, Veteran, and military spouse candidates. A ranking on the list also signifies that Cognosante’s leadership is invested in the value of hiring Veterans, supportive of the distinctions of military culture, and aware of veterans’ issues. Cognosante was also selected for its ability to achieve Veteran hiring goals despite the impacts of COVID-19 on the job market and typical business operations.
Cognosante is the only healthcare-related company to be included in the Top Ten list. Monster and Military.com praised Cognosante’s priority of hiring Veterans and noted their commitment to improving Veterans’ and other Americans’ access to health care services by supporting programs across Federal and state government agencies.
“Our employee culture is based on service and commitment,” says Michele Kang, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Cognosante. “We share the values of excellence and integrity that are ingrained through military service, and we appreciate the unique and transferrable skills that our Veteran employees bring. They deeply understand our military and defense customers’ missions, and how we can best serve the Veterans and active-duty service members they support.”
At Cognosante, Veteran employees receive additional support through ConVERG, the company’s Veteran Employee Resource Group that connects employees to mentoring, recruiting, and community service opportunities. The group’s goal is to create meaningful career opportunities and offer Veterans a chance to continue their service to nation while making the transition to civilian life.
