Military Recruitment


In an effort to support the hiring of US veterans, Stryker is proud to announce that we joined the 100,000 Jobs Mission in 2014. The 100,000 Jobs Mission began in 2011 as a coalition of 11 companies committed to hire 100,000 veterans by 2020. Since then, the coalition has grown to more than 180 companies that represent almost every industry in the American economy. Each company has committed to hire veterans, report their hiring number on a quarterly basis and share best practices. Together, the companies have hired 200k+ veterans, more than double the original goal! Building on this momentum, the Mission has raised its goal-pledging to hire 300,000 U.S. military veterans. As a project member, Stryker is committed to helping the coalition meet its goal. Being a part of the 100,000 Jobs Mission is just another step in our focus on creating a diverse and successful culture—making Stryker a great place to work!
