|NU is a military and veteran friendly company.|
Military Times EDGE ranks NU in top 50 companies for veteran friendliness
Military Times EDGE surveyed Fortune 1,000 companies and top government contractors and rated their vet-friendliness in three areas: recruiting, corporate culture and reserve policies. Northeast Utilities was one of the 50 companies selected because we have made veterans a priority—not just with slogans and statements of support, but with programs, policies and a positive track record.
NU supports “Troops to Energy Jobs.”
Developed by the Center for Energy Workforce Development (CEWD) and the Edison Electric Institute (EEI), the Troops to Energy Jobs program provides a roadmap for entry into skilled utility and engineering positions in the energy industry. It is a partnership of energy industry companies, their associations, their unions, the military, and institutions of higher education.
Northeast Utilities has a long and rich history that brings with it an understanding and appreciative culture for the brave men and women who serve our country. Thank you for helping your fellow Americans feel safe and secure.
Our industry continues to grow and expand, as does its need for advanced technical skills. We want experienced team members like you who can make an important contribution to the success of our organization. Your leadership, discipline, integrity, and teamwork qualities are exactly those NU seeks to fill its positions. We welcome you to apply for a career at NU and put your hard-earned skills to work.
Military and Veteran Programs and Communities
As a long-time supporter of military and veteran employees, we have programs and communities devoted specifically to veterans transitioning into the civilian workforce.
- NU Veterans
This is a non-political organization established with the purpose to renew old friendships and establish new ones with our veteran colleagues at NU. Part of our mission is to inform and aid each other, and work for the betterment of all veterans, families and country. We actively support and promote the following military and veterans programs:
Cell Phones for Soldiers – A nationwide organization that recycles used cell phones and purchases calling cards for troops serving overseas so they can call home to loved ones at no cost to them or their families. NU Veterans collects cell phones in support of this effort.
Homes for the Brave – A Connecticut organization that provides housing and vocational assistance to homeless veterans who comprise over 26 percent of the homeless population.
Wounded Warrior Project – A nationwide effort to raise awareness and support for severely wounded servicemen and women.
American Warriors – A Connecticut organization that sends World War II veterans free of charge to see their war memorial in Washington D.C. before it’s too late. The Warriors also bring these heroes to schools, senior centers and other fraternal organizations to inspire people from all generations.
- NU’s Online Veteran Social Media Community
NU has active social media communities accessible through the company’s intranet that promotes interaction and communication. One of the many online groups is devoted to veterans. Members are able to connect with each other to share stories, veteran information, and encourage participation in veteran-related activities across the company.
