CAES is proud to announce that the company has been named to the 2022 Military Times Best for Vets: Employers list for the first time. With only 175 companies in many industries included on the list, CAES is honored to be recognized as one of the best employers for our nation’s veterans.

“We take great pride that CAES’ efforts to hire and retain veterans are being recognized by Military Times. As a company that engineers and manufactures components for our nation’s military, it is a part of our mission to hire those who have served, and best utilize their unique skill sets as we pioneer new solutions for tomorrow’s needs,” said CAES President and CEO Mike Kahn.

Best for Vets is a yearly list compiled by Military Times of organizations that support veterans in their careers through specific programs and policies.

As an aerospace and defense supplier, CAES is committed to hiring veterans. CAES currently partners with organizations like the US Army Partnership for Your Success (PaYS) which matches U.S. Army soldiers with CAES opportunities. CAES also guarantees Army PaYS participants an interview for any CAES jobs that they apply for.

Additionally, CAES benefits include a military leave policy that pays the difference between an employee’s civilian pay and their military pay for the duration of military leave. CAES also participates in military and veteran focused job fairs, like the upcoming Veterans Employment Committee of San Diego job fair on November 10th. CAES also uses recruiters who are focused on veteran hiring.

“A veteran’s values, skills and breadth of experience improves our ability to innovate and provide high quality products to our customers. In this highly competitive and challenging labor market, attracting veterans is an important part of our recruitment process,” notes CAES SVP and CHRO Dave Fink.
