Veterans

We are honored by the fact that many veterans of the U.S. Military have made careers at GEO and contributed significantly to the company’s success. Historically, we have focused part of our national recruitment strategy on hiring veterans and those currently serving in the U.S. military reserves. In each of the past five years, GEO has been recognized by U.S. Veterans Magazine among its “Top Veteran Friendly Companies.” Nearly 1,900 U.S. military veterans currently work at GEO, accounting for 10 percent of the company’s U.S. employees.

We have thousands of military member employees in a variety of roles- from Cadets to Executive Leaders. No matter where you see yourself in your career, you will find challenging and rewarding career opportunities with an organization that understands the Military Community.

Veteran of the Quarter

At GEO, we celebrate the men and women that answered the call to service our great Nation. They answered this call selflessly; with great courage, dedication and personal sacrifice so that we Americans can continue to enjoy the freedom and liberties that we hold so dear.

One way that in which we do this is with a quarterly recognition program. Through this program, each GEO facility nominates a Veteran or Active Duty Service Member who has made a significant impact in their work and local community.

The Veteran of the Quarter Award consists of a personalized Engraved Plaque and a feature on our “Hiring Heroes Page”.
