Veterans in Pfizer (VIP) includes colleagues who seek to help maximize the unique role that veterans, active military personnel, and those that support them play in driving workplace and marketplace outcomes. VIP supports active-duty military, veterans, and their families through hosting and participating in events as a way to give back. VIP goals include recruiting and hiring veterans, assisting veterans with their development, and growing a sense of community between veterans and veteran supporters around our shared purpose.
We actively recruit veterans into Pfizer and assist them in demonstrating immediate value. We deliver leadership programming that significantly accelerates development and improves retention of key talent. We partner with community outreach organizations to educate leaders about strengths veterans bring to Pfizer and educate veteran communities about opportunities and resources within Pfizer. We lead the conversation with veteran support organizations to influence healthcare policy. We also engage across the diversity and inclusion I community on shared issues, given the wide range of veteran demographics.
VIP’s Executive sponsor is Dave Denton.
