The National Veteran-Owned Business Association (NaVOBA) and its Vetrepreneur magazine have named Rockwell Collins one of the top 25 United States-based companies dedicated to veterans — earning the distinction as a 2017 Military Friendly® Supplier Diversity Program.
Rockwell Collins received the honor for its continued incorporation of veteran-owned businesses into its supplier diversity programs. NaVOBA stated that companies who are chosen to be awarded are companies who realize that doing business with veterans isn’t just the right thing to do; it’s simply a smart business decision.
To determine its list of 25 best companies, Vetrepreneur analyzed large companies using web research, telephone inquiries and a survey. Rankings were based on policies related to the inclusion of veteran-owned businesses as part of each company’s supplier diversity program, and the way the company uses its outreach program to attract veteran-owned businesses.
