Sanford Health named one of the best employers for veterans

For the fourth year in a row, Sanford Health was named by Military Times as being one of the best employers across the country for veterans.

The 2022 list highlights 375 employers, with Sanford Health landing at number 4, up from 36 from last year.

This year, Sanford Health ranked number one in the non-profit category of employers as well as number one in the healthcare category.

In the past year, Sanford Health has increased veterans in the workforce by 6 percent and the number of active National Guard and Army Reserve members by 16 percent.

According to a release, veterans who disclose their status while applying for Sanford Health jobs are automatically given a screening interview.

Capt. Paul Weckman, a retired veteran of the United States Navy, leads Sanford Health’s department of military and veteran affairs, which oversees programs that are meant to support veterans and their families during and after their service.

“As we continue to seek out and hire more veterans to become part of the Sanford family, it’s important we do all that we can to make them feel supported and valued,” said Capt. Weckman.

“Being recognized by Military Times as one of the top 5 employers is an honor, and these programs we offer to recruit, retain and support veterans are the least we can do for the sacrifices these brave men and women have made serving our country.”
