Since January 2010, DaVita has hired over 2,000 veterans, offering transitional support for teammates with a military background. The hires vary from Patient Care Technicians to the Chief Development Officer.  In 2013, DaVita was honored to receive the Freedom Award from the Department of Defense, the highest recognition given to employers for exceptional support of Guard and Reserve employees.  In 2014, DaVita was also proudly recognized by GI Jobs, Civilianjobs.com, Military Times Edge and Military Spouse Magazine for being a military friendly employer.

You’ll hear an overview of DaVita’s best practices in recruiting, how level internal partnerships to grow their efforts, and lessons learned in external partnerships.  Our hope is that you are able discover some new military partnership opportunities and take away practical tips on building and maintaining a successful military recruiting within in your own organization, whether it’s large or small.

Following an overview of the Military Recruiting Program, you can experience first-hand the unique headquarters’ building in a tour by one of DaVita’s “Sherpas.”
