Humana has surpassed its goal of hiring 1,000 U.S. military veterans and/or their spouses by mid-2014. Humana made the hiring commitment in August 2011 as part of President Obama’s challenge to U.S. employers to hire 1,000 veterans and/or their spouses over the following three years.

Given Humana’s success of reaching its three-year goal in only 16 months, the company now plans to hire an additional 1,000 military veterans and/or their spouses over the next two years.

“A focused, company-wide effort enabled Humana to reach this milestone and surpass our initial hiring goal,” said Bruce Broussard, President and Chief Executive Officer of Humana. “Based on Humana’s experience partnering in multiple ways with the U.S. armed forces, we know that veterans and veteran spouses offer unique skills and insights that contribute significantly to fulfilling our dream of helping people achieve lifelong well-being.”
