Atlas Air Named a Patriot Employer by the Disabled American Veterans

As the largest provider of military passenger and cargo airlift globally to U.S. service members, our commitment to the military extends beyond the missions Atlas Air operates. We actively recruit and are a significant employer of former members of the military, including many of our pilots, logistics team, ground crew personnel and members of our management team.

The Company was recently recognized for this commitment and named a Patriot Employer by the Disabled American Veterans (DAV).

The DAV is dedicated to empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. Its Patriot Employer Program celebrates those employers who demonstrate by their employment policies, hiring practices and community outreach a “commitment to helping disabled veterans, military members and their families find meaningful employment opportunities.”

Evaluation criteria includes the strength of the company’s veteran recruiting and hiring efforts, retention and career-building initiatives, and company policies toward disabled veteran employees. Patriot Employers receive a digital badge to signal to clients, employees and potential hires that they value America’s veterans and what they bring to the workplace.

Chris Jarvis, Talent Acquisition Specialist, nominated Atlas for consideration.

“The DAV is recognized widely throughout the military and veteran communities for the work they do and the services they provide,” said Chris. “I am confident that our selection as a Patriot Employer will further strengthen our reputation among service members, an important talent demographic.”
