Bechtel is committed to providing vocational education, training, and career opportunities wherever we work. With Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, the Alameda County Workforce Investment Board, and Las Positas College, Bechtel is supporting a two-year academic program to provide technical education and hands-on training for veterans in New Mexico.
Along the U.S. Gulf Coast, we have partnered with the Military Relations Strategic Initiative to align military training and experience with the needs of our projects to increase construction-related employment opportunities for veterans. In 2014, Bechtel hired nearly 500 veterans for craft and nonmanual positions, and we exceeded the U.S. Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs’ veteran-hire requirements, a goal that we have achieved since 2012. Bechtel also earned the 2015 Military Friendly® Employer elite designation by the publishers of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse magazines.
