Patriots in Business Awards

The Patriots in Business Awards are a partnership between Chief Executive Group and Thayer Leader Development Group to honor the Best Companies with Veteran & Military Initiatives. 

This award recognizes outstanding businesses that lead our nation in supporting active duty military members, veterans and their families and exemplify the values of Duty, Honor and Country through their business practices and throughout their community and industry.  

Through their initiatives on hiring, training, supporting, and honoring Active Duty, Veterans and military families, these outstanding companies are the gold standard for other companies who seek to support those who serve.  Download the special supplement the September 2016 TD magazine, "Supporting and Developing Veterans", created in partnership with The Association for Talent Development, to learn how other corporations have implemented veterans initiatives in their organizations.
