Veterans make up a significant percentage of our population both nationally and in North Carolina, where RTI is headquartered. Our military veterans offer diverse backgrounds, perspectives and experiences, and bring valuable leadership and technical skills to the workforce. RTI welcomes them because they enrich our culture and strengthen our organization.
Through volunteerism, veteran-focused employee programs, and research on topics that impact active duty service members and veterans, RTI has demonstrated a longtime commitment to creating opportunities for and improving the lives of those who have served in the military and their families.
One of the key ways we do this is hosting veteran networking sessions. As part of recruitment efforts for military veterans, RTI’s Global Talent Acquisition Team welcomes veteran candidates to learn more about our employment opportunities and collaborates annually with Army Civil Affairs to help veterans transition to the nonprofit sector.
Another important component of our veteran support system is the Veterans and Allies Resource Group (VALoR). One of several Employee Resource Groups at RTI, VALoR provides a professional network, active community, and development opportunities for its members. This inclusive group welcomes all RTI employees who have served in their respective countries’ military forces, those who are still serving, and all employees who support them.
