GE offers an entry-level leadership program, Junior Officer Leadership Program, designed specifically for military officers as well as supporting specialized programs for reservists and guardsmen called to active duty. The program is a unique opportunity to work in three 8-month rotations with different GE businesses. Qualified candidates are selected to start their careers in a two-year cross-functional rotational training program, which includes both on-the-job and formal classroom training.
GE is honored to have over 10,000 U.S. military veterans continue their career with us. Building on our strong commitment to military veteran recruitment and development, we’re pleased to announce the launch of the GE Veterans Network.
Support of the Guard and Reserve
In 2012, we renewed our statement of support with the Employers Support for the Guard and Reserve to ensure we back GE’s reservists and their families. In 2009, we also signed a memorandum of agreement with the U.S. Army Reserve to guarantee priority consideration for job interviews for all qualified participating soldiers no later than 30 days after completing military occupational specialty training. Other benefits:
- Salary differential ensures GE employees called to active duty maintain the same salary level as when they were working at GE for 36 months of deployment.
- Healthcare benefits for dependents allow GE employees’ families continued healthcare coverage while deployed.
GE is a founding member of American Corporate Partners (ACP), a national mentoring program dedicated to helping veterans transition from the armed services to private enterprise through career counseling and networking with professionals.
In 2004, GE was a recipient of the Freedom Award from the Department of Defense for the support we have given our employees in the National Guard and Reserves who have been called to active duty. In 2008, GE and GE Healthcare received honorable mention for the Freedom Award after being nominated by current GE employees serving overseas.
Since 2007, in total GE and the GE Foundation have given $2 million dollars to Disabled American Veterans (DAV), an organization that focuses on building better lives for disabled veterans and their families. The GE Foundation, GE’s philanthropic organization, made a two-year $1.5 million grant to Disabled American Veterans. The grant and donation will allow the DAV Transition Service Program to be significantly expanded. This program offers free benefits, counseling and claim filing assistance to troops about to transition into civilian life.
Donations to Memorials and Museums
In addition, GE businesses have given support to the armed services through the GE Foundation. In the past few years, GE has donated more than $1.5 million to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, Medal of Honor Foundation, Air Force Memorial Foundation, Air Force Museum, Marine Corps Museum, the Pearl Harbor Memorial Fund.
